Question

A community survey sampled 1923 people in Colorado and asked them how long it took them to commute to work each day. The sample mean one-way commute time was 25.3 minutes with a standard deviation of 13 minutes. A transportation engineer claims that the mean commute time differs from 25 minutes. Do the data provide convincing evidence that the engineer's claim is true? Use the α=0.01 level of significance and the P-value method with the Critical Values for the Student's t Distribution Table.

(a) State the appropriate null and alternate hypotheses.

H0:

H1:

This hypothesis test is a.

(b) Compute the value of the test statistic. Round the answer to at least three decimal places.

(c)Determine whether to reject H0.

Answer #1

Solution :

This is two tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H0 : = 25

Ha : 25

Test statistic (t)

= ( - ) / s / n

= (25.3 - 25) / 13 / 1923

**Test statistic = 1.012**

P-value = 0.3117

= 0.01

P-value >

**Fail to reject the null hypothesis**

13. A 2007 Gallup poll randomly sampled 1019 people, and asked
them how long it took them to commute to work each day. The sample
mean one-way commute time was 22.8 minutes with a standard
deviation of 17.9 minutes. A transportation engineer claims that
the mean commute time is greater than 20 minutes. Do the data
provide convincing evidence that the engineer’s claim is true? Use
the α = .05 level of significance. a. Check the conditions. b.

A survey of 19401940 people who took trips revealed that 212212
of them included a visit to a theme park. Based on thosesurvery
results, a management consultant claims that less than 1212 % of
trips include a theme park visit. Test this claim using the
α=0.01α=0.01 significance level.
The test statistic is _________?
The critical value is_______?

A survey of 1475 people who took trips revealed that 107 of them
included a visit to a theme park. Based on those survey results, a
management consultant claims that less than 9 % of trips include a
theme park visit. Test this claim using the \alpha = 0.05
significance level.

A random sample of 13 students were asked how long it took them
to complete a certain exam. The mean length of time was 111.5
minutes, with a standard deviation of 83.0 minutes. Find the lower
bound of the 90% confidence interval for the true mean length of
time it would take for all students to complete the exam.

117 of them included a visit to a theme park. Based on those
survery results, a management consultant claims that less than 88 %
of trips include a theme park visit. Test this claim using the
α=0.01 significance level.

A random sample of 13 students were asked how long it took them
to complete a certain exam. The mean length of time was 117.6
minutes, with a standard deviation of 69.2 minutes. Find the lower

Watching TV: In 2012, the General Social Survey asked a sample
of 1328 people how much time they spent watching TV each day. The
mean number of hours was 3.03 with a standard deviation of 2.68. A
sociologist claims that people watch a mean of 3 hours of TV per
day. Do the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the
mean hours of TV watched per day is greater than the claim? Use the
=α0.10 level of significance and...
