Question

The National Center for Education Statistics reports that the proportion of college freshmen who return to the same school for their sophomore year is 0.69. Suppose we select a random sample of 480 freshmen from across the nation.

Question 1. What is the expected value of the sampling distribution model for the proportion of 480 freshmen that will return to the same school for their sophomore year?

Question 2. What is the standard deviation of the sampling distribution model for the proportion of 480 freshmen that will return to the same school for their sophomore year? (Round to 3 decimal places)

Question 3. What is the probability that the proportion of these 480 freshmen that return to the same school for their sophomore year is less than 0.75? (Round to 4 decimal places)

Answer #1

Solution

Given that,

p = 0.69

1 - p = 1 - 0.69 = 0.31

n = 480

1) = p = 0.69

2) = [p ( 1 - p ) / n] = [(0.69 * 0.31) / 480 ] = 0.021

3) P( < 0.75 )

= P[( - ) / < (0.75 - 0.69) / 0.021]

= P(z < 2.86)

Using z table,

= 0.9979

High school graduates: The National Center for Educational
Statistics reported that 82% of freshmen entering public high
schools in the U.S. in 2009 graduated with their class in 2013. A
random sample of 135 freshmen is chosen.
c. Find the probability that less than 80% of freshmen in the
sample graduated.
d. Find the probability that the sample proportion of students
who graduated is between 0.75 and 0.85.

The
National Center for Education Statistics would like to test the
hypothesis that the proportion of Bachelor's degrees that were
earned by women equals o.60. A random sample of 140 college
graduates with Bachelor degrees found that 75 were women. The
National Center for Education Statistics would like to set
significance level of o.10. What is your conclusion?

The National Center for Education Statistics reports that mean
scores on the standardized math test for eighth-graders in 2009
increased slightly from those for previous years. The mean score in
2009 was 283. Assume that the standard deviation is 10.
1. Find the probability that the test score of a randomly
selected eighth- grader was greater than 290
2. What proportion of test scores was between 295 and 300?
3. Suppose students who scored at the...

The National Center for Health Statistics reports that
the mean systolic blood pressure for all females aged 45 to 54
years is 130 with a population standard deviation of 9. A
researcher randomly samples 64 female executives aged 45 to 54
years and determines their mean systolic blood pressure to be 132.
Using this sample result, conduct a hypothesis test to determine if
the researcher can conclude that female executives aged 45 to 54
years have a higher mean systolic...

The National Center for Health Statistics reports that 25% of
all Americans between the ages of 65 and 74 have a chronic heart
condition. Suppose you live in a state where the environment is
conducive to good health and low stress and you believe the
conditions in your state promote healthy hearts. To investigate
this theory, you conduct a random telephone survey of 25 persons 65
to 74 years of age in your state.

nation, states, and in some urban districts. Also known as The
Nation's Report Card, NAEP has provided important information about
how students are performing academically since 1969.

their first year of teaching 14% had left the profession compared
with 29% of the 410 teachers...
