Question

The mean age of the patrons of a particular nightclub has historically been 35 years. The proprietor of the nightclub wishes to find out if there is evidence that the mean age of his patrons has increased. Let μ be the mean age of the patrons of the nightclub.

Step 1: State the null and alternative hypotheses.

Step 2: A random sample of 41 recent evenings is selected. The average age of the patrons in the sample is 36.4 years with a standard deviation of 4.2 years. Find the test statistic. Give your answer to 3 decimal places.

Step 3: Ignore your
answers in Steps 1 and 2. Assume that the test is one-sided and the
statistic is 1.485. Find the *P*-value of the test. Give
your answer to 3 decimal places.

Step 4: Ignore your
answer in Step 3. Assume that the *P*-value is 0.028. We
conclude at α = 5 % that:

Step 5: Find the critical value associated with a 95% confidence interval for μ . Give your answer to 3 decimal places.

Answer #1

1)

H0: = 35

Ha: > 35

2)

Test statistics

t = ( - ) / ( S / sqrt(n) )

= ( 36.4 - 35) / ( 4.2 / sqrt(41) )

= **2.134**

3)

From T table,

With test statistics of 1.485 and df of 40,

p-value = **0.073**

4)

Since p-value of 0.028 < 0.05 significance level ,
**Reject the null hypothesis**

5)

df = n - 1 = 41 - 1 = 40

t critical value at 0.05 significance level with 40 df =
**2.021**

The mean age of the patrons of a particular nightclub
has historically been 35 years. The proprietor of the nightclub
wishes to determine if the mean age of his patrons has changed. He
uses a sample of 36 recent evenings and finds that the average age
of the patrons in the sample is 36.8 years in the standard
deviation of 3. 6 years. Let u be the mean of the patrons of the
nightclub.
1) State the null and alternative...

In the past the average age of employees of a large corporation
has been 40 years. Recently, the company has been hiring older
individuals. In order to determine whether there has been an
increase in the average age of all the employees, a sample of 25
employees was selected. The average age in the sample was 42.5
years with a sample standard deviation of 5 years. Using a
significance level of α = .01, do the sample data provide support...

Suppose the mean age of the population in a particular country
is 53 years ( μ = 53 years) with σ = 5.5. An SRS of 100 people
revealed a mean x ̅of 54.85 years. Use a two-sided test to
determine if the sample mean is significantly higher than expected.
α = .05
Show all hypothesis testing steps.
a)Hypothesis
b)Test Statistic
c)P-value
d)Conclusion

Consider the following hypothesis test.
H0: μ ≥ 35
Ha: μ < 35
A sample of 36 is used. Identify the p-value and state
your conclusion for each of the following sample results. Use

x = 34 and s = 5.2
Find the value of the test statistic. (Round your answer to
three decimal places.)
B.
Find the p-value. (Round your answer to four decimal
places.)
C.
x = 33 and s = 4.5
Find the...

The average age of a part-time seasonal employee at a hotel has

The recommended daily dietary allowance for zinc among males
older than age 50 years is 15 mg/day. An article reports the
following summary data on intake for a sample of males age 65−74
years: n = 115, x = 12.1, and s = 6.57.
Does this data indicate that average daily zinc intake in the
population of all males age 65−74 falls below the recommended
allowance? (Use α = 0.05.)
H0: μ = 15
Ha: μ < 15

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?
