Question

A study was conducted to determine if the salaries of librarians from two neighboring states were equal. A sample of 100 librarians from each state was randomly selected. The mean from the first state was $29,800 with a standard deviation of $2,200. The mean from the second state was $31,400 with a standard deviation of $2,150. Test the hypothesis that there is no difference in the salaries from both states at the 0.05 significance level.

- Determine the test statistic.
*Round to four decimal places.*

t= - Find the pp-value.
*Round to 4 decimals.*

p-value =

Answer #1

SOLUTION-

LET BE THE MEAN SALARY FOR FIRST STATE AND BE THE MEAN SALARY FOR SECOND STATE. WE WANT TO TEST IF THE TWO MEANS ARE EQUAL. THE HYPOTHESIS IS,

AS THE SAMPLES ARE INDEPENDENT, WE PERFORM A TWO SAMPLE-T TEST AT 0.05 SIGNIFICANCE LEVEL IN MINITAB-16

STEPS- STAT> BASIC STATISTICS> TWO SAMPLE-T> ENTER THE SUMMARIZED DATA> UNDER 'OPTIONS', SET THE CONFIDENCE LEVEL AS 95.0 AND ALTERNATE AS 'NOT EQUAL'> OK.

1.) THE TEST STATISTIC IS **T= -5.20**

2.) THE P-VALUE IS **0.000**

*AS P-VALUE<0.05, REJECT THE NULL HYPOTHESIS*.

****IN CASE OF DOUBT, COMMENT BELOW. ALSO **LIKE**
THE SOLUTION, IF POSSIBLE.

A study was conducted to determine if the salaries of librarians
from two neighboring cities were equal. A sample of 15 librarians
from each city was randomly selected. The mean from the first city
was $28,900 with a standard deviation of $2300. The mean from the
second city was $30,300 with a standard deviation of $2100. Test
the hypothesis that the salaries from both cities are equal. Use α
= 0.025.
State the null and alternative hypotheses. p value ,...

A study was conducted to determine if the salaries of elementary
school teachers from two neighboring states were equal. A sample of
100 teachers from each state was randomly selected. The mean from
the first state was $29,200 with a population standard deviation of
$2300. The mean from the second state was $30,600 with a population
standard deviation of $2100. Test the claim that the salaries from
both states are equal. Use α = 0.05.

A study was conducted to determine if the salaries of elementary
school teachers from two neighboring states were different. A
sample of 100 teachers from each state were randomly selected. The
mean from the first state was $34, 500 with a population standard
deviation of $2875. The mean from the second state was $35, 450
with a population standard deviation of $3200. Test the claim that
the salaries from both states are different. Use α = 0.01.

a) Identify the claim: state the null and alternative
hypotheses. b) Determine the test: left-tailed, right-tailed, or
two-tailed. c) Graph your bell-shaped curve and label your levels
of significance or critical value. d) Find your standardized test
statistic ? and label it on your graph. e) Decide whether to reject
or fail to reject the null hypothesis. f) Interpret your
result.

A study was conducted to estimate the difference in the
mean salaries of elementary school teachers from two neighboring
states. A sample of 10 teachers from the Indiana had a mean salary
of $28,900 with a standard deviation of $2300. A sample of 14
teachers from Michigan had a mean salary of $30,300 with a standard
deviation of $2100. Determine a 95% confidence interval for the
difference between the mean salary in Indiana and Michigan.(Assume
population variances are different.) write...

In a study of annual salaries of employees, random samples were
selected from two companies to test if there is a difference in
average salaries. For Company "X", the sample was size 65, the
sample mean was $47,000 and the population standard deviation is
assumed to be $11,000. For Company "Y", the sample size was 55, the
sample mean was $44,000 and the population standard deviation is
assumed to be $10,000. Test for a difference in average salaries at

In a study of monthly salary distribution of residents in Paris
conducted in year 2015, it was found that the salaries had an
average of €2200 (EURO) and a standard deviation of €550.
One years later (in 2016), it was suspected that the average
salary had increased. A hypothesis test was conducted at a
significance level of 5% to test the suspicion. A random sample of
size 64 was chosen with mean of €2385 and standard deviation of
€650.

A large study involving over 20,000 individuals shows that the
mean percentage intake of kilocalories from fat was 39% with a
range from 6% to 72%. A small sample study was conducted at a
university hospital to determine if the mean intake of patients at
that hospital was different from 39%. A sample of 15 patients had a
mean intake of 40.8% with a standard deviation equal to 6.5%.
Assume that the sample is from a normally distributed population.
