Question

A simple random sample of size nequals15 is drawn from a population that is normally distributed. The sample mean is found to be x overbarequals21.8 and the sample standard deviation is found to be sequals6.3. Determine if the population mean is different from 24 at the alpha equals 0.01 level of significance. Complete parts (a) through (d) below. (a) Determine the null and alternative hypotheses. Upper H 0: ▼ mu sigma p ▼ less than equals greater than not equals 24 Upper H 1: ▼ sigma p mu ▼ equals not equals less than greater than 24 (b) Calculate the P-value. P-valueequals nothing (Round to three decimal places as needed.) (c) State the conclusion for the test. A. Do not reject Upper H 0 because the P-value is less than the alphaequals0.01 level of significance. B. Do not reject Upper H 0 because the P-value is greater than the alphaequals0.01 level of significance. C. Reject Upper H 0 because the P-value is less than the alphaequals0.01 level of significance. D. Reject Upper H 0 because the P-value is greater than the alphaequals0.01 level of significance. (d) State the conclusion in context of the problem. There ▼ is not is sufficient evidence at the alpha equals 0.01 level of significance to conclude that the population mean is different from 24.

Answer #1

a)

null hypothesis: HO: μ | = | 24 | |

Alternate Hypothesis: Ha: μ | ≠ | 24 |

b)

population mean μ= | 24 | |||

sample mean 'x̄= | 21.800 | |||

sample size n= | 15 | |||

std deviation s= | 6.300 | |||

std error ='sx=s/√n=6.3/√15= | 1.6267 | |||

t statistic ='(x̄-μ)/sx=(21.8-24)/1.627= |
-1.3525 |
|||

p value = |
0.198 |
from excel: tdist(1.352,14,2) |

c)

B. Do not reject Ho because the P-value is greater than the
alpha 0.01 level of significance.

d)

There is not sufficient evidence at the alpha equals 0.01 level of significance to conclude that the population mean is different from 24.

A psychologist obtains a random sample of 20 mothers in the
first trimester of their pregnancy. The mothers are asked to play
Mozart in the house at least 30 minutes each day until they give
birth. After 5 years, the child is administered an IQ test. It is
known that IQs are normally distributed with a mean of 100. If the
IQs of the 20 children in the study result in a sample mean of
104.4 and sample standard deviation...

A simple random sample of 45 men from a normally distributed
population results in a standard deviation of 12.6 beats per
minute. The normal range of pulse rates of adults is typically
given as 60 to 100 beats per minute. If the range rule of thumb is
applied to that normal range, the result is a standard deviation
of 10 beats per minute. Use the sample results with a 0.10
significance level to test the claim that pulse rates of...
