Question

Randomly selected 3131 student cars have ages with a mean of
7.37.3 years and a standard deviation of 3.43.4 years, while
randomly selected 2525 faculty cars have ages with a mean of 5.65.6
years and a standard deviation of 3.53.5 years.

1. Use a 0.050.05 significance level to test the claim that student
cars are older than faculty cars.

(a) The null hypothesis is H0:μs=μfH0:μs=μf. What is the
alternate hypothesis?

**A.** HA:μs>μfHA:μs>μf

**B.** HA:μs≠μfHA:μs≠μf

**C.** HA:μs<μfHA:μs<μf

(b) The test statistic is

(c) The p-value is

(d) Is there sufficient evidence to support the claim that
student cars are older than faculty cars?

**A.** No

**B.** Yes

Answer #1

(a) The null hypothesis is H0:μs=μf. The alternate hypothesis is

**C.** HA:μs<μf

b)

n1 = 3131

n2 = 2525

s1 = 3.43

s2 = 3.53

claim : The student cars are older than faculty cars.

Null and alternative hypothesis is

H0 :u1 = u2

Vs

H1 :u1< u2

Level of significance = 0.05

Before doing this test we have to check population variances are equal or not.

Null and alternative hypothesis is

Vs

Test statistic is

F = Larger variance / Smaller variance = 12.4609 / 11.7649 = 1.059

Degrees of freedoms

Degrees of freedom for numerator = n1 - 1 = 3131 - 1 = 3130

Degrees of freedom for denominator = n2 - 1 = 2525 - 1 = 2524

Critical value = 1.064( using f-table )

F test statistic < critical value we fail to reject null hypothesis.

Conclusion: Population variances are equal.

So we have to use pooled variance.

Test statistic

Formula

c)

d.f = n1 + n2 – 2 = 3131 +2525 - 2 = 5654

p-value = 0.00001 ( using t table )

p-value , Reject H0

conclusion : There is a sufficient evidence to conclude that student cars are older than faculty cars

so option B is correct

**B.** Yes

and cars owned by faculty at a local state college. A sample of
8484 cars owned by students had an average age of 5.78 years. A
sample of 118 cars owned by faculty had an average age of 5.79
years. Assume that the population standard deviation for cars owned
by students is 2.39 years, while the population standard deviation
for cars owned by faculty is 3.27 years. Determine the...
