Question

In? 1960, census results indicated that the age at which American men first married had a mean of 23.3 years. It is widely suspected that young people today are waiting longer to get married. We want to find out if the mean age of first marriage has increased since 1960. A random sample of??

4343

men who married for the first time last year was taken. The average age of the men in the sample was

2424

years with a standard deviation of

5.15.1

years.

a. Fill in the blanks. The? t-statistic for this problem is? ______ (round to 2 decimal places after the decimal? point) with? ______ degrees of freedom.

nothing

b. Use a calculator? (handheld or? online) to determine the? p-value. Which of the following is the correct range of the? p-value?

A.

0.005? < p-value? < 0.01

B.

p minus value less than 0.005p?value < 0.005

C.

0.01? < p-value? < 0.05

D.

0.05? < p-value? < 0.10

E.

p minus value greater than 0.10

Answer #1

a) The test statistic t = ()/(s/)

= (24 - 23.3)/(5.1/)

= 0.90

DF = 43 - 1 = 42

The t-test statistic for this problem is 0.90 with 42 degrees of freedom.

b) P-value = P(T > 0.90)

= 1 - P(T < 0.90)

= 1 - 0.8134

= 0.1866

Option - E) P-value > 0.10

In 1960, census results indicated that the age at which American
men first married had a mean of 23.3 years. It is widely suspected
that young people today are waiting longer to get married. A random
sample of 40 men who married for the first time last year was
studied. The men in this sample married at an average age of 25.9
years, with a standard deviation of 5.3 years. A histogram of the
data is given to the right....

In 1980, census results indicated that the age at which American
men first married had a mean of 23.3 years. It is widely suspected
that young people today are waiting longer to get married. We want
to find out if the mean age of first marriage has increased during
the past 37 years. A random sample of 40 men who married for the
first time last year is selected, and the results found a mean of
24.2 years and a...

In 1960, census results indicated that the age at which men in
a certain region first married had a mean of 23.4 years. It is
widely suspected that young people today are waiting longer to get
married. We want to find out if the mean age of first marriage has
increased since then. Complete parts a through f below.
a.) Write appropriate hypotheses.

1)When a truckload of apples arrives at a packing plant, a
random sample of 225 is selected and examined for bruises,
discoloration, and other defects. The whole truckload will be
rejected if more than 10% of the sample is unsatisfactory. Suppose
that in fact 12% of the apples on the truck do not meet the desired
standard. What’s the probability that the shipment will be accepted
anyway? Give your answer to 4 decimal places.

In the United States, the mean age of men when they marry for
the first time follows the normal distribution with a mean of 24.8
years. The standard deviation of the distribution is 2.7 years. For
a random sample of 63 men, what is the likelihood that the age when
they were first married is less than 25 years? (Round your z value
to 2 decimal places. Round your answer to 4 decimal places.)

1. Do you check your phone or use technology right before you go
to bed? If so, chances are that you are not alone. A recent news
report claims that 60% of adults use some kind of technology right
before they go to bed at night. Believing that this claimed value
is too low, a researcher surveys a random sample of 200 adults and
finds that 71% use some kind of right before they go to bed. If a
hypothesis...

1. According to a recent report, 38% of adults wait
until they are 30 years of age or older to get
married for the first time. A researcher believes this claimed
value is too low. He gathers
data in order to test the hypotheses Ho: p = 0.38 vs. Ha: p >
0.38. In these hypotheses, what
does p represent?
A. The sample proportion
B. The population proportion
C. The p-value
D. The sample mean
E. The population mean

Question 1: At the local community college it has been reported
the average age of first year college students is 20 years of age
with a standard deviation of 7.2 years. As a college professor you
believe it’s less. To test your claim, you take a random sample of
200 students, the average age 19.4 years. At an alpha of 0.02 what
do you conclude? (1 point each for a total of 4 points)
a) Ho:
