Question

The US Department of Energy reported that 45% of homes were heated by natural gas. A random sample of 300 homes in Oregon found that 170 were heated by natural gas. Test the claim that proportion of homes in Oregon that were heated by natural gas is different than what was reported. Use a 5% significance level. Give answer to at least 4 decimal places.

What are the correct hypotheses? (Select the correct symbols and use decimal values not percentages.)

H_{0}: Select an answer s s² p̂ σ² σ p μ
x̄ Select an answer > ≤ < = ≥
≠

H_{1}: Select an answer x̄ s σ² p̂ s² p σ
μ Select an answer ≤ > = < ≥
≠

Based on the hypotheses, find the following:

Test Statistic =

p-value =

Based on the above we choose to Select an answer Fail to reject the null hypothesis Accept the alternative hypotheis Accept the null hypothesis Reject the null hypothesis

The correct summary would be: Select an answer There is enough evidence to support the claim There is enough evidence to reject the claim There is not enough evidence to reject the claim There is not enough evidence to support the claim that the proportion of homes in Oregon that were heated by natural gas is different than what the DOE reported value of 45%.

Answer #1

a)

For this study, we should use Select an answer z-test for a
population proportion

b)

Below are the null and alternative Hypothesis,

Null Hypothesis: p = 0.45

Alternative Hypothesis: p ≠ 0.45

c)

P = 170/300 = 0.5667

Test statistic,

z= (P -p)/sqrt(p*(1-p)n)

= ( 0.5667 - 0.45)/sqrt(0.45*(1-0.45)/300)

= 4.0630

d)

P-value Approach

P-value = 0.0001

e)

As P-value < = alpha,

f)

reject null hypothesis.

g)

There is enough evidence to support the claim that the proportion of homes in Oregon that were heated by natural gas is different than what the DOE reported value of 45%..

The US Department of Energy reported that 46% of homes were
heated by natural gas. A random sample of 300 homes in Oregon found
that 138 were heated by natural gas. Test the claim that proportion
of homes in Oregon that were heated by natural gas is different
than what was reported. Use a 1% significance level. Give answer to
at least 4 decimal places.

The US Department of Energy reported that 52% of homes in the
USA were heated by natural gas. A random sample of 316 homes in
Oregon found that 152 were heated by natural gas. Test the claim
that proportion of homes in Oregon that were heated by natural gas
is different from the US reported proportion. Use a 5% significance

he work week for adults in the US that work full time is
normally distributed with a mean of 47 hours. A newly hired
engineer at a start-up company believes that employees at start-up
companies work more on average then most working adults in the US.
She asks 12 engineering friends at start-ups for the lengths in
hours of their work week. Their responses are shown in the table
below. Test the claim using a 10% level of significance. Give...

The mean age when smokers first start is 13 years old with a
population standard deviation of 1.8 years. A researcher thinks
that smoking age has significantly changed since the invention of
ENDS—electronic nicotine delivery systems. A survey of smokers of
this generation was done to see if the mean age has changed. The
sample of 34 smokers found that their mean starting age was 12.2
years old. Do the data support the claim at the 10% significance
level?

You are conducting a study to see if the proportion of men over
the age of 50 who regularly have their prostate examined is
significantly less than 0.3. A random sample of 726 men over the
age of 50 found that 205 have their prostate regularly examined. Do
the sample data provide convincing evidence to support the claim?
Test the relevant hypotheses using a 1% level of significance. Give
answer to at least 4 decimal places.

You are testing the claim that the mean GPA of night students is
different from the mean GPA of day students. You sample 25 night
students, and the sample mean GPA is 2.23 with a standard deviation
of 0.93. You sample 60 day students, and the sample mean GPA is
2.05 with a standard deviation of 0.54. Test the claim using a 10%
level of significance. Assume the population standard deviations
are unequal and that GPAs are normally distributed.

A random sample of 535 college freshman found that 144 bought
most of their textbooks from the college's bookstore. A random
sample of 266 college seniors found that 37 bought their textbooks
from the college's bookstore. You wish to test the claim that the
proportion of all freshman that purchase most of their textbooks
from the college's bookstore is not equal to the proportion of all
seniors at a significance level of α=0.01α=0.01. Round answers to 4
decimal places. Assume...

A new beta-blocker medication is being tested to treat high
blood pressure. Subjects with high blood pressure volunteered to
take part in the experiment. 160 subjects were randomly assigned to
receive a placebo and 210 received the medicine. High blood
pressure disappeared in 100 of the controls and in 112 of the
treatment group. Test the claim that the new beta-blocker medicine
is effective at a significance level of αα = 0.05.
What are the correct hypotheses?
