Question

**Use the following to answer 5 - 8.**

Among the four northwestern states, Washington has 51% of the total population, Oregon has 30%, Idaho has 11%, and Montana has 8%. A market researcher selects a sample of 1000 subjects, with 450 in Washington, 340 in Oregon, 150 in Idaho, and 60 in Montana. At the .05 significance level, test the claim that the sample of 1000 subjects has distribution that agrees with the distribution of state populations.

Which of the following is the correct statement for the claim?

H1: At least one of the percentages is different.

Ho: Wa = .51, Or = .3, Id = .11, Mn= .08

H1: Wa = .51, Or = .3, Id = .11, Mn= .08

Ho: At least one of the percentages is different

Question 6

The test statistic is:

Group of answer choices

17.455

26.963

33.942

31.938

Question 7

The p-value is:

.000000238

.000000539

.263122245

.000000989

Question 8

The conclusion for this test is:

Fail to reject Ho which says that there is sufficient evidence to support the claim of the same distribution

Reject Ho which says there is sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim of the same distribution

Reject Ho which says there is sufficient evidence to support the claim of the same distribution

Fail to reject Ho which says there is sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim of the same distribution

Answer #1

**Solution :**

**Question 5 :**

**Null Hypothesis :**

H0: Wa = .51, Or = .3, Id = .11, Mn= .08

**Alternative Hypothesis :**

H1: At least one of the percentages is different.

**Question 6**

**test statistic:**

States |
percentage |
Observed |
Expected |
(Observed -
Expected) |
((Observed - Expected)^2) /
(Expected) |

Washington | 51% = 0.51 | 450 | 0.51 * 1000 = 510 | -60 | 7.058824 |

Oregon | 30% = 0.30 | 340 | 0.30 * 1000 = 300 | 40 | 5.333333 |

Idaho | 11% = 0.11 | 150 | 0.11 * 1000 = 110 | 40 | 14.54545 |

Montana | 8%= 0.08 | 60 | 0.08 * 1000 = 80 | -20 | 5 |

Sum = 31.93761 |

**Test Statistic = 31.938 (Option D)**

**Question 7:**

=CHIDIST(31.938,3)

P value : 0.000000539

**Option B**

**Question 8 :**

P-value < alpha

So, reject H0 (Null Hypothesis)

Reject Ho which says there is sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim of the same distribution.

**Option B**

8. Teachers want to know which days of the week students are
absent in a five-day school week. The student absences for one
school week are listed in the table below. Use a

In a recent court case it was found that during a period of 11
years 872 people were selected for grand jury duty and 42 % of them
were from the same ethnicity. Among the people eligible for grand
jury duty, 80.5% were of this ethnicity. Use a 0.01 significance
level to test the claim that the selection process is biased
against allowing this ethnicity to sit on the grand jury. Identify
the null hypothesis, alternative hypothesis, test statistic,
P-value,...

A new fuel injection system has been engineered for pickup
trucks. The new system and the old system both produce about the
same average miles per gallon. However, engineers question which
system (old or new) will give better consistency in fuel
consumption (miles per gallon) under a variety of driving
conditions. A random sample of 41 trucks were fitted with the new
fuel injection system and driven under different conditions. For
these trucks, the sample variance of gasoline consumption was...
