Question

A schoolteacher is concerned that her students watch more TV than the average American child. She reads that according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the average American child watches 4 hours of TV per day (μ = 4.0 hours). She records the number of hours of TV each of her six students watch per day. The times (in hours) are 2.6, 4.1, 5.4, 4.3, 2.8, and 4.8.

cohen's d d=

.05 level of significance and a one independent t test state the value of the test statistic

t=

Answer #1

H0:mu= 4 i.e.( Average American child watches 4 hr tv per day)

Vs

H1:mu >4 i.e.( claim of school teacher)

Under , the null hypothesis

Test statistic, t= x bar- mu/(s/√n) follows t distribution with n-1 degree of freedom.

X bar= 4.0 ( average of the given data)

std. Deviation= s= 1.1045

So, t= 4-4/(1.1045/√6)= 0

Critical t - value for alpha= 0.05 and for (6-1) df = 2.015

Since, critical t value is greater than calculated test statistic value so, we don't reject the null hypothesis and concluded that Average American watches 4 hr tv per day.

There is some evidence that suggests that children with obesity
watch more TV than children who are not obese. To examine this
relationship, researchers obtain a random sample of n = 36 children
6-10 years old, who have been diagnosed as being obese per the BMI
chart. Each child is asked to record the number of hours spent each
day watching TV. The average for this sample is M = 4.9 hours. It
is known that the general population of...

Questions 7 – 17. A researcher is interested in whether New
Yorkers watch more TV than theaverage American. In the population,
Americans watch an average of 34 hours of TV per week. A researcher
surveys 28 New Yorkers and finds that they watch an average of 32
hours of TV per week with a variance of 25. The researcher uses an
alpha level of 0.01.
7. Is this a one- or two-tailed test?
8. What is the null hypothesis?
