Question

Time perception. Randomly selected college students participated in an experiment that tested their ability to determine the course of 1 minute (or 60 seconds). Forty students produced a sample mean of 58.3 seconds. Assuming that the standard deviation is 9.5 seconds, use a significance level of 0.05 to test the assertion that the population mean is less than 60 seconds.

Answer #1

solution

this is the left tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H0 : = 60

Ha : <60

Test statistic = z

= ( - ) / / n

= (58.3-60) / 9.5 / 40

= -1.13

P(z < -1.13 ) = 0.1292

P-value = 0.1292

= 0.05

P-value >

do not Reject the null hypothesis .

There is no sufficient evidence to suggest that

Actual times (in seconds) recorded when statistics students
participated in an experiment to test their ability to determine
when one minute (60 seconds) had passed are shown below. Find the
mean, median, and mode of the listed numbers.

one sample showed that among 780 randomly selected students who
completed four years of college 20% smoke. Use a=0.02 significance
level to test the claim that the rate of smoking among those four
years of college is less than 27% rate for the general
population

15% of all college students volunteer their time. Is the
percentage of college students who are volunteers larger for
students receiving financial aid? Of the 332 randomly selected
students who receive financial aid, 53 of them volunteered their
time. What can be concluded at the α= 0.05 level of
significance?

The scores of individual students on the American College
Testing (ACT) program composite college entrance examination have a
normal distribution with mean 18.6 and standard deviation 6.0.
Forty-nine randomly selected seniors take the ACT test. What is the
probability that their mean score is less than 18? Round your
answer to 4 decimal places.

Do college students enjoy playing sports less than watching
sports? A researcher randomly selected ten college students and
asked them to rate playing sports and watching sports on a scale

below.
