Question

Child Health and Development Studies (CHDS) has been collecting data about expectant mothers in Oakland, CA since 1959. One of the measurements taken by CHDS is the weight increase (in pounds) for expectant mothers in the second trimester. In a fictitious study, suppose that CHDS finds the average weight increase in the second trimester is 14 pounds. Suppose also that, in 2015, a random sample of 40 expectant mothers have mean weight increase of 16 pounds in the second trimester, with a standard deviation of 6 pounds. At the 5% significance level, we can conduct a one-sided T-test to see if the mean weight increase in 2015 is greater than 14 pounds. Statistical software tells us that the p-value = 0.021.

Which of the following is the most appropriate conclusion?

- There is a 2.1% chance that a random sample of 40 expectant mothers will have a mean weight increase of 16 pounds or greater if the mean second trimester weight gain for all expectant mothers is 14 pounds.
- There is a 2.1% chance that mean second trimester weight gain for all expectant mothers is 14 pounds in 2015.
- There is a 2.1% chance that mean second trimester weight gain for all expectant mothers is 16 pounds in 2015.
- There is 2.1% chance that the population of expectant mothers will have a mean weight increase of 16 pounds or greater in 2015 if the mean second trimester weight gain for all expectant mothers was 14 pounds in 1959.

Find the p-value for the hypothesis test. A random sample of size 50 is taken. The sample has a mean of 420 and a standard deviation of 81.

H0: µ = 400

Ha: µ > 400

The p-value for the hypothesis test is

data about expectant mothers in Oakland, CA since 1959. One of the
measurements taken by CHDS is the age of first time expectant
mothers. Suppose that CHDS finds the average age for a first time
mother is 26 years old. Suppose also that, in 2015, a random sample
of 50 expectant mothers have mean age of 26.5 years old, with a
standard deviation of 1.9 years. At the 5% significance level,...

Question 5
Dean Halverson recently read that full-time college students
study 20 hours each week. She decides to do a study at her
university to see if there is evidence to show that this is not
true at her university. A random sample of 31 students were asked
to keep a diary of their activities over a period of several weeks.
It was found that the average number of hours that the 31 students
studied each week was 18.9 hours....

You are interested in the weight gain of the Auburn Freshman.
You think that the average weight gain of the Auburn Freshman
student is not 15 pounds. You collect a random sample of
measurements. The weight gains are (a negative value indicates a
weight loss):
16, 13, 13, 15, 14, 18, 19, 14
You may assume for the following questions that the distribution
of weight gain is normal.
(a) State the appropriate hypothesis test. (This was done before
collecting the...

Recently the national average yield on municipal bonds has been
µ = 4.19%. A random sample of 16 Arizona municipal bonds had an
average yield of 5.11% with a sample standard deviation of
s = 1.15%. Does this indicate that the population mean
yield for all Arizona municipal bonds is greater than the national
average? Use a 5% level of significance. Assume x is
normally distributed.
(A) State the null and alternate hypotheses and the level of
significance. Is the...

The manager of a grocery store has taken a random sample of 100
customers. The average length of time it took the customers in the
sample to check out was 3.1 minutes. The population standard
deviation is known at 0.5 minutes. We want to test to determine
whether or not the mean waiting time of all customers is
significantly different than 3 minutes. Use α = 0.05.

a. 1.96
b. 1.64
c. 2.00
d. 0.056...

Refer to the data set in the
accompanying table. Assume that the paired sample data is a simple
random sample and the differences have a distribution that is
approximately normal. Use a significance level of

paper?
(in
pounds) and
weights of discarded plastic?
(in
pounds).

1.The sample mean is an unbiased estimator for
the population mean. This means:
The sample mean always equals the population mean.
The average sample mean, over all possible samples, equals the
population mean.
The sample mean will only vary a little from the population
mean.
The sample mean has a normal distribution.
2.Which of the following statements is
CORRECTabout the sampling distribution of the
sample mean:
The standard error of the sample mean will decrease as the
sample size increases....
