Question

A national publication reported that a college student living away from home spends, on average, no more than $15 per month on laundry. You believe this figure is too low and want to disprove this claim. To conduct the test, you randomly select 15 college students and ask them to keep track of the amount of money they spend during a given month for laundry. The sample produces an average expenditure on laundry of $18.35, with a population standard deviation of $4.56. Use these sample data to conduct the hypothesis test. Assume you are willing to take a 10% risk of making a Type I error and that spending on laundry per month is normally distributed in the population.(Round your answer to 2 decimal places.)

The value of the test statistic is

Answer #1

**Answer:**

**Value of test statistics is 2.85**

**Here we use t-test because the sample size is less than
30.**

**\**

**Conclusion: The college student living away from home
spends, on average, more than $15 per month on
laundry.**

A national publication reported that a college student living

A graduate student believed that, on the average, college
students spend more time on the Internet compared to the rest of
the population. She conducted a study to determine if her
hypothesis was correct. The student randomly surveyed 25 students
and found that the average amount of time spent on the Internet was
11.75 hours per week with a SD = 1.5 hours. The last census found
that, on the average, people spent 11 hour per week on the
Internet....

Clarita’s boyfriend wants to figure out how many hours each day
she spends watching TikTok videos, but is afraid to ask because he
thinks the question might offend her. He surreptitiously keeps
track of a random sample of 36 days and finds that the average
hours per day she spends over that sample is 2.3, with a sample
standard deviation of 0.6. (a) What does the number 2.3 represent
in this question? What notation would you use to represent it?...

An average college student in the University of California
system gets $17000 in scholarships per year.
Researchers surveyed a simple random sample of 45
UCD students and found that, the mean annual scholarship amount of
the sample was $14950, (standard deviation of
$5700.) Conduct a one-sample t-test for the
population mean to evaluate if UC-Davis students receive
less than the UC average in yearly scholarship funding.
Assume that a p-value of 0.05 or lower is needed
to reject a null...

Does the average college student consume more alcohol per year? A
researcher surveyed 15 randomly selected college students and found
that they averaged 98.8 liters of alcohol consumed per year with a

The average first salary (that is the salary received at their
first job after finishing college), in the young population of one
country in Europe follows a normal distribution with mean 1100
euros per month and standard deviation 200 euros. We want to verify
the hypothesis that the first salary of young people in that
country who have a masters' degree from a foreign university, is
not different than the population average. We look at a random
sample of 300...
