Question

Astronomers have recently discovered an unknown distant galaxy and noticed something abnormal. Specifically, they suspect the percentage of stars that host planets in this galaxy is lower than is typical. (It is known that around 75% of stars throughout the universe have planets). Given the current state of technology, astronomers are not able to conduct a complete scan of all the stars in this galaxy. So instead they randomly observed 45 stars within the new galaxy, and found only 24 of them had at least one planet. They would like for you to conduct a hypothesis test to verify their suspicio

**1. Which of the following is the correct null and
alternative hypothesis?**

a. H0:μ=24H0:μ=24 vs. HA:μ<24HA:μ<24

b. H0:x¯=24H0:x¯=24 vs. HA:x¯<24HA:x¯<24

c. H0:p^=0.75H0:p^=0.75 vs. HA:p^<0.75HA:p^<0.75

d. H0:p^=0.75H0:p^=0.75 vs. HA:p^≠0.75HA:p^≠0.75

e. H0:p=24/45H0:p=24/45 vs. HA:p>24/45HA:p>24/45

f. H0:p=0.75H0:p=0.75 vs. HA:p<0.75HA:p<0.75

g. H0:p<0.75H0:p<0.75 vs. HA:p=0.75HA:p=0.75

**2. Write a sentence defining the relevant parameters
from your selected pair of hypotheses.**

*To type the mathematical symbols, you may refer to* x¯x¯
*as* **x_bar**, μμ *as*
**mu***, and* p^p^ *as*
**p_hat** *based on your selected hypotheses, if
and as necessary.*

**3.Are the assumptions necessary for this hypothesis test
satisfied? Justify your answer.**

**4. Calculate the appropriate test statistic for your
hypothesis test, to three decimal places.**

**5. Suppose the value of the relevant test statistic were
-4.45. (This is not the correct value of the test
statistic.)**

Clearly state your conclusion to the hypothesis (reject/fail to reject/accept H0H0/HAHA) at an α=0.01α=0.01 level, and write a sentence interpreting your conclusion

Answer #1

Astronomers have recently discovered an unknown distant galaxy
and noticed something abnormal. Specifically, they suspect the
percentage of stars that host planets in this galaxy is lower than
is typical. (It is known that around 75% of stars throughout the
universe have planets). Given the current state of technology,
astronomers are not able to conduct a complete scan of all the
stars in this galaxy. So instead they randomly observed 45 stars
within the new galaxy, and found only 24...

For a sample of 116 college students, the relationship between
the reported hours of sleep during the previous 24 hours and the
reported hours of study during the same period was studied. Data
for y = hours of sleep the previous day and x =
hours of studying the previous day for n = 116 college
students were computed. Some regression results for those data are
shown in the following table.

Suppose that a pharmaceutical company is interested in testing
their new cholesterol medication and recruited 24 adults with high
blood pressures, where half of them were given the new drug and the
other half were given the old drug. Then the reduction in LDL
cholesterol level (unit: mg/dL) was measured after 6 months.
Summary statistics of the amount of reduction are shown
below.

Suppose that a pharmaceutical company is interested in testing
their new cholesterol medication and recruited 11 sets of identical
twins with high blood pressures. For each twin, one was given the
new drug and the other was given the old drug, then the reduction
in LDL cholesterol level (unit: mg/dL) was measured after 6 months.
Summary statistics of the amount of reduction are shown
below.

ACT Prep Course. ACT prep courses like to market that you can
increase your ACT score by taking their courses. Some statisticians
were curious how effective these courses really were. They decided
to investigate the truth of the claim by measuring the average
score increase for a random sample of students selected to take an
ACT prep course. These students took the ACT twice, once before and
once after taking the course. The variable of interest was the
increase in...

Pedego Electric Bikes manufactures and sells its own brand of
electric bicycles (Ebike). The company is based in Irvine,
California. The bicycles can be pedaled manually and also be
powered electrically, reaching speeds of up to 20 miles per hour.
One model in Pedego’s line is the “Comfort Cruiser Ebike”. Based on
historical production records, it took 47 minutes, on average, to
completely assemble a Comfort Cruiser Ebike.
Pedego has recently instituted some major technological
innovations to their assembly line...

A random sample of 42 firms was chosen from the S&P 500
firms listed in the Spring 2003 Special Issue of Business
Week (The Business Week Fifty Best Performers). The indicated
dividend yield (DIVYIELD), the earnings per share (EPS), and the
stock price (PRICE) were recorded for these 42 firms.† These data
are available in the worksheet entitled DIV4. Run a regression
using DIVYIELD as the dependent variable and EPS and PRICE as the
independent variables. Use the output to...
