Question

- Based on past data, it is believed that on Thanksgiving, 70% of
people eat pumpkin pie. Suppose we take a sample of 100 people and
find that 75 of the people in that sample eat pumpkin pie on
Thanksgiving. We want to see if there is evidence that the
percentage of people who eat pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving is
increasing.
- If I wanted to control my margin of error and set it to 3% with 99% confidence, what sample size would I need to take instead of the 100?
- Using my original sample size of 100, what would be the 99% confidence interval for the population proportion?
- What are the null and alternative hypotheses?
- What is the critical value at 99% confidence?
- Calculate the test statistic (using the sample of 100).
- Find the p-value.
- What conclusion would be made here at the 99% confidence level?

Hope this will help you. Thank you :)

Based on past data, it is believed that on Thanksgiving,
70% of people eat pumpkin pie. Suppose we take a sample of 100
people and find that 75 of the people in that sample eat pumpkin
pie on Thanksgiving. We want to see if there is evidence that the
percentage of people who eat pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving is
increasing.

Based on past data, it is known that about 8.96% of people who
go to the doctor end up testing positive for influenza. Suppose we
take a sample of 100 doctor visits and find that 9.17% of people
test positive for influenza. We want to see if there is evidence
that the percentage of people who have influenza is increasing.

2. Dean and Cas are arguing about which is better: cake or pie.
They decide to conduct a survey to see which of the two people
prefer. (a) (4pts) What population parameter are Dean and Cas
interested in? Describe this with a complete sentence and with
appropriate notation. (b) (4pts) Dean and Cas go to several diners
around America and find that of the 400 people they asked, 125
preferred pie. Is 125 400 a parameter or a sample statistic?...

Suppose we are interested in analyzing the weights of NFL
players. We know that on average, NFL players weigh 247 pounds with
a population standard deviation of 47 pounds. Suppose we take a
sample of 30 new players and we find that the average weight from
that sample is 237 pounds. We are interested in seeing if the
weight of NFL players is decreasing

It is known that the average tuition per semester at colleges
in Virginia is $3712. Suppose we take a sample of 15 colleges and
find that the average tuition per semester is $4512 with a sample
standard deviation of $595. We are interested in testing if the
average amount of tuition is increasing.
Using the sample of 15 people, what would the 95% confidence
interval be for the population mean?
What are the null and alternative hypotheses?

A certain forum reported that in a survey of 2002 American
adults, 22% said they believed in astrology.
(a)
Calculate a confidence interval at the 99% confidence level for
the proportion of all adult Americans who believe in astrology.
(Round your answers to three decimal places.)
,
Interpret the resulting interval.
We are 99% confident that the true population mean lies above
this interval. We are 99% confident that this interval does not
contain the true population mean. We are...

It is known that the average American orders food from a
restaurant in person or as take out 4.2 times a week on average.
Suppose we take a sample of 30 Americans and find that the average
amount of meals ordered out is 3.2 per week with a sample standard
deviation of 2.82 meals. We are interested in testing if the
average amount of meals ordered out is actually lower than 4.2 now.
Using the sample of 30 adults, what...

Based on past data, the proportion of Major League Baseball
(MLB) players who bat left handed was 0.481. You are interested to
see if this is still the case. You conduct a sample of 23 players
and find that 10 are left handed hitters. The 95% confidence
interval is ( 0.2322 , 0.6374 ). What is the best conclusion of
those listed below?
Question 6 options:
1)
The confidence interval does not provide enough information to
form a conclusion.
