Question

A claim is made that 75% of college students use their laptops to take notes during lecture. Blaine believes this claimed value is too low. He is able to survey a random sample of 245 college students, and he finds that 84% of these students use their laptops to take notes during lecture. Which of the following statements is correct based on this information?

A. The claimed population proportion is 0.84.

B. If a hypothesis test is conducted, the test statistic will be less than 2.

C. If a hypothesis test is conducted, the *p*-value will
be less than 0.05.

D. Blaine should not conduct a hypothesis test since the sample size is too big.

E. If the significance (or alpha) level is set at 0.01, the null hypothesis will not be rejected.

Answer #1

It is claimed that 68% of college students change their majors
at least once. A researcher believes this claimed value is too low.
He surveys a random sample of 247 college students and finds that
72% of them have changed their majors at least one time. Use this
information to conduct a hypothesis test at a significance (or
alpha) level of 0.05.
What will the hypotheses be?

College students and STDs: A recent report estimated
that 25% of all college students in the United States have a
sexually transmitted disease (STD). Due to the demographics of the
community, the director of the campus health center believes that
the proportion of students who have a STD is lower at his
college.
He tests H0: p = 0.25 versus Ha: p <
0.25. The campus health center staff select a random sample of 50
students and determine that 18%...

Researchers claim that at most 18 % % of high school students
smoke cigarettes. A high school principal thinks the claim is too
low and conducts his own survey. He samples 300 students and finds
that 78 of them smoke cigarettes. He tests the claim using α=0.01
α=0.01 . What is the result of his hypothesis test? Select one: a.
The hypothesis test suggests that more than 18 % % of high school
students smoke cigarettes. b. The hypothesis test...

The accompanying data table lists the weights of male college
students in kilograms. Test the claim that male college students
have a mean weight that is less than the 8383 kg mean weight of
males in the general population. Use a 0.010.01 significance level.
Identify the null hypothesis, alternative hypothesis, test
statistic, P-value, and conclusion for the test. Assume this is a
simple random sample. Calculate the test statistic (round to three
decimals) That is the P value?

3: A statistics instructor believes that fewer than 20% of
Evergreen Valley College students attended the opening night
midnight showing of the latest Harry Potter movie. She surveys 84
of her students and finds that 11 of them attended the midnight
showing.
Let ? = proportion of Evergreen Valley College students that
attended the midnight showing.
A: State the Null and Alternate Hypotheses.
B: Determine the test statistic for the sample.
C: Find the p-value.
D: At a significance level...

4.A claim is made that 25% of American college students leave
the United States during spring break. You believe this claim is
incorrect. You would like to test the null hypothesis that ? = 0.25
versus the alternative hypothesis that ? ≠ 0.25. You gather data
from a random sample of 100 college students and obtain a test
statistic of 1.8. If we assume the significance (or alpha) level is
α = 0.05, what should your decision be? A. Reject...

. In a recent poll on education 64% of all college
students stay up all night studying for final exams. A professor at
a local college says this is too low and wants to test this claim
He Surveys 5.000 college students and finds that 3250 have stayed
up all night studying for final exams use standard deviation of
1%
a. State the null and alternative
hypothesis
b. Determine and draw the hypothesis testing model
(label everything)
c.Determine the critical...

A small private college is interested in determining the
percentage of its students who live off campus and drive to class.
It is claimed that less than 20% of their current students live off
campus and drive to class. The college decided to take a random
sample of 108 of their current students to use in the analysis. It
was found that 14 of those live off campus and drive to class. Is
therre enought evidence to support the claim...

The mean number of eggs per person eaten in the United States is
245. Do college students eat a different number of eggs than the
average American? The 53 college students surveyed averaged 265
eggs per person and their standard deviation was 61.5. What can be
concluded at the αα = 0.05 level of significance?
For this study, we should use Select an answer z-test for a
population proportion t-test for a population mean
The null and alternative hypotheses would...

The national average of college students on a test of sports
trivia is 50 with a standard deviation of 5. A sportscaster is
interested in whether BC students know less about sports than the
national average. The sportscaster tests a random sample of 25 BC
students and obtains a mean of 48 Use an alpha level of
0.05.
1. Using symbols state the null hypothesis
