Question

A researcher is looking into whether who wear Crocs sandals are less cool than people who wear other sandals. He knows that the mean “coolness” score for people who wear other sandals is 21, with a population standard deviation of 6. He takes a sample of 9 people who wear Crocs and finds a sample mean coolness score of 17.4. What is the probability of finding this result or lower, if the null hypothesis is true?

a. .6844

b. .9912

c. .0792

d. .0359

Answer #1

Solution :

= 21

=17.4

=6

n = 9

This is the left tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H0 : = 21

Ha : < 21

Test statistic = z

= ( - ) / / n

= (17.4-21) / 6 / 9

= -1.8

Test statistic = z = -1.8

P(z < -1.8 ) = 0.0359

P-value = 0.0359

Option d ) is correct.

A researcher is looking into whether who wear Crocs sandals are
less cool than people who wear other sandals. He knows that the
mean “coolness” score for people who wear other sandals is 21, with
a population standard deviation of 6. He takes a sample of 9 people
who wear Crocs and finds a sample mean coolness score of 17.4. What
is the probability of finding this result or a result that is more
extreme, if the null hypothesis is...

5. A researcher investigating whether joggers are less likely to
get colds than people who do not jog found a P-value of
3%. What does that mean? (Hint: it would help if you write the null
and alternative hypotheses and pick some confidence level to
compare the p-value to).

1. A social researcher wants to test the hypothesis that people
who drink a lot while bowling have higher scores than people who do
not drink while they bowl. The researcher studies 50 drinking
bowlers and 50 non-drinking bowlers. The average score for drinking
bowlers was 142 with a standard deviation of 7.45. The average
score for non-drinking bowlers was 134 with a standard deviation of
6.81.
In words: What are your conclusions about the null
hypothesis?

Do people who diet score higher than people in general on a
measure of health?
For people in general, the avg on this test is 70 with a SD of
12. The distribution is normal. A researcher tested a sample of 36
people who diet & found them to have a mean score of 82. Use
the .05 significance level for this question.
A. Complete the 5 steps of hypothesis testing for this

The Fair Isaac Corporation (FICO) credit score is used
by banks and other lenders to determine whether someone is a good
credit risk. Scores range from 300 to 850, with a score of 720 or
more indicating that a person is a very good credit risk. An
economist wants to determine whether the mean FICO score is lower
than the cutoff of 720. She finds that a random sample of 50 people
had a mean FICO score of 707 with...

A researcher studied more than 12,000 people over a 32-year
period to examine if people's chances of becoming obese are
related to whether they have friends and family who become obese.
They reported that a person's chance of becoming obese increased
by 50% (90% confidence interval [CI], 77 to 128) if he or she
had a friend who became obese in a given interval. Explain what the
90% confidence interval reported in this study means to a person
who understands...

Cameron is a writer for an online consumer advocacy publication
and is investigating people who are looking to unload their
timeshares. He recently heard a claim that 40% of people who own a
timeshare want to unload it and thinks the percentage is too low.
Cameron tests whether more than 40% of timeshare owners want to
unload their timeshare. He randomly selects and surveys 91
timeshare owners and finds that 44 of them want to unload their
timeshare. What are...

A researcher is interested in whether people who write with the
left hand have a greater gripping strength in their left hand than
their right hand. They state their hypotheses:
H0 : The mean difference in left and right hand strengths is
zero
HA : The mean difference in left and right hand strengths (L-R)
is positive
The left- and right-hand gripping strengths of 10 randomly
selected left-handed writers are measured and recorded:
Person
1
2
3
4

i. A researcher estimated the proportion of voters who favor the
Democratic candidate in an election. Based on 500 people she
calculates the 95% confidence interval for the population
proportion p: 0.123 <p<0.181.
Which of the following is a valid interpretation of this
confidence interval ?______
a. There is a 95% chance that the true value of p lies between
0.123 and 0.181
b. If many different samples of 500 were selected
and a confidence interval was constructed based on...
