Question

An internet-based organization that allows individuals and groups to raise funds for a project. In April 2020, the mean total for pledges per project, m, was $3165.00 US dollars.

A random sample of 14 projects from April 2020 has the following characteristics:

n = 14

`X = $2459.30

s = $887.62

All of the projects were in the category “Comics.”

(a) Specify the hypotheses for a *t-*test to determine
whether the mean funding per project for “Comics” projects is lower
than the overall mean for April 2020. Use a one-sample
*t*-test with a = 0.05. Assume that the sample data are more
or less normally distributed.

(b) Conduct a hypothesis test with a = 0.05, estimating the
*t*-statistic and the *p*-value.

(c) Report:

the level of significance,

the type and value of the test statistic (including degrees of freedom if appropriate),

the *p*-value (exact values if possible, or a range of
possible values), and

the implications for the null hypothesis.

What do the results of the hypothesis test tell us about the difference between the mean for the “Comics” category and the mean for all types of projects, m = $3165.00 US dollars?

(d) Compute and interpret a 95% confidence interval for the population mean of the “Comics” category. Does the confidence interval include the population mean for all projects, m = $3165.00 US dollars? What does this imply about the funds raised for a typical “Comics” project compared to the mean for all types of projects?

the following one-day rental prices (in dollars) for Hertz and
Thrifty, respectively:
Hertz: 37.16, 14.36, 17.59, 19.73, 30.77, 26.29, 30.03, 29.02,

Education. Post-secondary educational
institutions in the United States (trade schools, colleges,
universities, etc.) traditionally offer four different types of
degrees or certificates. The U.S. Department of Education recorded
the highest degree granted by each of these institutions in the
year 2003. The percentages are shown in the table below. A random
sample of 225 institutions was taken in 2013 and the number of
institutions in the sample for each category is also shown in the
table. Conduct a hypothesis test...

] X~NORM(44.0, 3.2). A sample mean of 46.7 is taken, for n=30.
Given H0: m=44.0, H1: m > 44.0, and
a=0.05. Note this is a test on the mean for a single population.
What test statistic should be used? (Z, T, c2, F?)?
Why?
What is the critical value of the test statistic to
use for this test? What is the accept region (accept H0)
and reject region (reject H0)?
Based on the critical value, what is your conclusion regarding...

A) A polling organization reported data from a survey of 2000
randomly selected Canadians who carry debit cards. Participants in
this survey were asked what they considered the minimum purchase
amount for which it would be acceptable to use a debit card.
Suppose that the sample mean and standard deviation were $9.17 and
$7.50, respectively. (These values are consistent with a histogram
of the sample data that appears in the report.)
Do these data provide convincing evidence that the mean...

#1. A survey organization recently conducted a random sample of
1000 individuals from the population of American adults. The survey
assessed the relationship between religiosity and partisanship. It
asked the individuals whether religion is an important part of your

Republicans, or Independents. The results were as follows:
Partisanship

A random sample of 36 values is drawn from a mound-shaped and
symmetric distribution. The sample mean is 14 and the sample
standard deviation is 2. Use a level of significance of 0.05 to
conduct a two-tailed test of the claim that the population mean is
13.5.
(a) Is it appropriate to use a Student's t
distribution? Explain.
Yes, because the x distribution is mound-shaped and
symmetric and σ is unknown.No, the x distribution
is skewed left. No, the x
distribution...
