Question

A local newspaper claims in an article that the average income for all handymen in the city is more than $5200 per month. A sample of 20 randomly selected handymen had the mean income of $5300 with the standard deviation of $150 per month. Test the claim made by the local newspaper at α = 0.05 .

For each question you need to find the following

- a) < 1 point > Write the given .

Step 1

b) < 2 points > Write the claim and its opposite , then determine which is the null hypothesis and which is the alternative hypothesis.

c) < 0.5 point >Write the type of test you are going to use ( LT , RT , or 2 T )

d) < 0.5 point > what distribution you are going to use ( z or t )

Step 2

Use a graphing Calculator: Find the calculated test statistic and the P- Value

i) < 0.5 > what did you use to find the CTS : Z- Test, T – Test , or 1-PropZtest ( choose one of them)

ii ) < 2 >Write the value of the calculated test statistics : C. T . S : ( choose z or t ) =

iii) < 1.5 point > P -value =

Step 3 Analyze

Traditional Method < 3 points> P-value Method. < 2 points >

For traditional , you need to Sketch the graph For P-value method, you need to do

Shade the required area P-value α Need to write the value of each

label the critical value/s compare the values ( < or > )

Label the C.T.S

Step 4 : Write

- i) < 1 point > Decision: (no credit if your answer is just reject or fail to reject only ; you need to write the complete expression)
- ii) < 3 points > Conclusion ( fill in) : There ___________ enough evidence to _____________

the ______________ that _______________

Answer #1

4. A used car dealer says that the mean price of a 2008 Honda
CR-V is less than $20,500. You suspect this claim
is incorrect and find that a random sample of 14 similar vehicles
has a sample mean price of $19,850 and a sample standard deviation
of $1084. Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that the
mean price is less than $20,500.
or each question you need to find the following
a) < 1 point >...

The average time a subscriber of a local newspaper The News
spends reading it is 24 minutes. Assume that the times are normally
distributed and the standard deviation is 10 minutes.
Compute the probability that a subscriber spends more than 30
minutes reading the paper.
Find the range of reading times for the middle 90% of the
subscribers.
[Hint: First,
nd zc such that P ( zc < z <
zc) = 0:90.]
The average time was calculated from a...

The cost of a daily newspaper varies from city to city. However,
the variation among prices remains steady with a population
standard deviation of $0.20. A study was done to test the claim
that the mean cost of a daily newspaper is $1.00. Thirteen costs
yield a mean cost of $0.95 with a standard deviation of $0.18. Do
the data support the claim at the 1% level?
Note: If you are using a Student's t-distribution for the
problem, you may...

A claim is made that the average salary for all jobs in
Minnesota is less than $74,500. You are going to test the claim
using α=0.05 and assume that your
data is normally distributed and the population standard
deviation (σ) is not
known.

A recent article in the Daily Express newspaper reported that
only one in four new college graduates are able to obtain a job.
The reason stated is that there is an overabundance of college
graduates and a recession.
A survey of 150 college graduates revealed that 47 had jobs.
Using a significance level of α=0.01, conduct a hypothesis test to
examine if a larger proportion of college graduates have jobs than
the newspapers claim.

A company claims that the average monthly expenditure of its
customers is greater than $175. The results of a sample of
customers’ monthly expenditures is below.
?̅= 176, ? = 10, ? = 50 At ? = 0.01 , is there enough evidence
to support the company’s claim?
1). State the hypothesis and label which represents the claim: :
H 0 : H a
2). Specify the level of significance =
3). Sketch the appropriate distribution and label it...

Your friend claims he has a fair coin; that is, the probability
of ﬂipping heads or tails is equal to 0.5. You believe the coin is
weighted. Suppose a coin toss turns up 15 heads out of 20 trials.
At α = 0.05, can we conclude that the coin is fair (i.e., the
probability of ﬂipping heads is 0.5)? You may use the traditional
method or P-value method.

A claim is made that the average salary for all jobs in
Minnesota is greater than $70,500. You are going to test the claim
using α=0.05 and assume that your
data is normally distributed and the population standard
deviation (σ) is not
known.
a. Write the null and alternative hypotheses
symbolically and identify which hypothesis is the claim. Then
identify if the test is left-tailed, right-tailed, or two-tailed
and explain why.
b. Identify and explain which test statistic you will...

Question 3
The U.S. average for state and local taxes for a family of four
is $4172. A random sample of 20 families in a northeastern state
indicates that they paid an annual amount of $4560 with a standard
deviation of $1590. At α = 0.05, is there sufficient evidence to
conclude that they pay more than the national average of $4172?
a. Write down the null and alternative
hypotheses [2
marks]
b. With a reason, state which is the more...

Question 4:
An article in Wikipedia claims that the mean body
temperature of adults is less than 98.6° F. This goes against
everything you’ve ever been taught, so you gather 565 healthy
adults and observe a mean body temperature of 98.2°F, with the
sample standard deviation of 2.6°F. Test the article’s claim at a
5% level of significance.
If the problem is a confidence interval:
Show whether the criteria for approximate normality are
met. (1 point)
Summarize the sample statistics....
