Question

The time spent watching TV per week by middle-school students has a normal distribution with mean 20.5 hours and standard deviation 5.5 hours.

(a) Find the percent who watch less than 25 hours per week

(b) Find the percent who watch over 30 hours per week

Answer #1

Suppose, random variable X denotes time spent (in hours) watching TV per week by middle-school students.

**(a)**

Corresponding probability is given by

[Using R-code '**pnorm(0.8181818)**']

Hence, **79.34%** students watch
TV less than 25 hours per week.

**(b)**

Corresponding probability is given by

[Using R-code
'**1-pnorm(1.727273)**']

Hence, **4.21%** students watch TV
over 30 hours per week.

suppose that for adults the average amount of time spent
watching tv per day is normally distribution with a mean of 42
minutes and a standard devation of 12 minutes.
1) what percent of adults spend less than 30 minutes watching tv
per day?
A) .04 B) .08 C) .11 D) .13 E) .16
2) What percent of adults more than 50 minutes watching tv per
day?
A) 0.18 B) 0.25 C) 0.45 D) 0.62 E) 0.75
3) what percent...

According to the South Dakota Department of Health, the number
of hours of TV viewing per week is higher among adult women than
adult men. A recent study showed women spent an average of 30 hours
per week watching TV, and men, 22 hours per week. Assume that the
distribution of hours watched follows the normal distribution for
both groups, and that the standard deviation among the women is 4.1
hours and is 5.0 hours for the men. What percent...

According to the South Dakota Department of Health, the number
of hours of TV viewing per week is higher among adult women than
adult men. A recent study showed women spent an average of 29 hours
per week watching TV, and men, 24 hours per week. Assume that the
distribution of hours watched follows the normal distribution for
both groups, and that the standard deviation among the women is 4.9
hours and is 5.4 hours for the men.
How many...

In order to determine how many hours per week freshmen college
students watch television, a random sample of 25 students was
selected. It was determined that the students in the sample spent
an average of 19.5 hours with a sample standard deviation of 3.9
hours watching TV per week. Please answer the following questions:
(a) Provide a 95% confidence interval estimate for the average
number of hours that all college freshmen spend watching TV per
week. (b) Assume that a...

Do female college students spend more time than male college
students watching TV? This was one of the questions investigated by
the authors of an article. Each student in a random sample of 46
male students at a university in England and each student in a
random sample of 38 female students from the same university kept a
diary of how he or she spent time over a three-week period.
For the sample of males, the mean time spent watching...

Today, full time college students report spending a mean of 27
hours per week on academic activities, both inside and outside of
the classroom. Assume the standard deviation of time spent on
academic activities is 4 hours. If you select a random sample of 50
full-time college students:
A. Describe the shape of the sampling distribution. How do you
know it is this shape?
B. Find the mean and standard deviation for the distribution of
the sample mean (x bar)...

Watching TV: The General Social Survey asked a sample of
1298 people how much time they spent watching TV each day. The mean
number of hours was 3.09 with a standard deviation of 2.87. A
sociologist claims that people watch a mean of 3 hours of TV per
day. Do the data provide sufficient evidence to disprove the claim?

Test the claim that the mean time Americans send watching TV per
day is 4.4 hours at the 0.01 level
of significance. A random sample of 360 people had a mean time of
4.05 hours of viewing per day.
Assume that the population watching times are normally distributed
with standard deviation 1.08
hours. Explain how you arrived at your answer by using the
appropriate distribution curve to show
the acceptance region and the critical region.

According to the South Dakota Department of Health, the mean
number of hours of TV viewing per week is
higher among adult women than men. A recent study showed women
spent an average of 34 hours per week
watching TV and men 29 hours per week (
www.state.sd.us/DOH/Nutrition/TV.pdf). Assume that the
distribution of hours watched follows the normal distribution
for both groups, and that the standard deviation
among the women is 4.5 hours and is 5.1 hours for the men....
