Answer #1

The average cost of tuition plus room and board for a small
private liberal arts college is reported to be $8,500 per term, but
a financial administrator believes that the average cost is higher.
A study conducted using 350 small liberal arts colleges showed that
the average cost per term is $8,745. The population standard
deviation is $1,200. Let α = 0.01. What is the critical z-value for
this test?

(13) The average tuition and room and board cost at a small
private liberal arts college is reported to be $20,000 per term. A
study of 400 small liberal arts colleges find that the average cost
per term is $20,100. The population standard deviation is $1,500.
If α = 0.05, what is your decision about the average cost?

The average annual cost (including tuition, room, board, books,
and fees) to attend a public college takes nearly a third of the
annual income of a typical family with college-age children.† At
private colleges, the average annual cost is equal to about 60% of
the typical family's income. The following random samples show the
annual cost of attending private and public colleges. Data are in
thousands of dollars.

The room-and-board price of a college is set separately from the
tuition portion of the fees. At a board meeting the administration
of a midwest college suggested a 5% raise in both areas. Then a
problem was discussed regarding student responses to pricing. After
the discussion, one board member moved to lower the room-and-board
price increase to 2% and raise the tuition increase to 6%

The average cost of tuition, room and board at community
colleges is reported to be $11,500 per year, but a financial
administrator believes that the average cost is higher. A study
conducted using 150 community colleges showed that the average cost
per year is $12,000 with a standard deviation of $1,200. Let α =
0.05.
What are the null and alternative hypotheses for this study?

A. Compute the sample mean (in thousand dollars) and sample
standard deviation (in thousand dollars)...

A mean undergraduate cost for tuition, fees, room, and board for
four-year institutions was $26,489 for a recent academic year.
Suppose that the population standard deviation equals $3,204 and 36
four-year institutions are randomly selected.
Find the probability that the sample mean cost for these 36
schools is between $25,000 and $26,000.
