Question

11. It is claimed that the approval rating of the government of a certain state is more than 50%. Out of a random sample of 300 people, 145 people gave the government a positive rating. Test the claim at ∝ = 0.05

Answer #1

Solution :

The null and alternative hypothesis is

H0 : p = 0.50

Ha : p > 0.50

= x / n = 145 / 300 = 0.4833

1 - P0 = 0.50

Test statistic = z

= - P0 / [P0 * (1 - P0 ) / n]

= 0.4833 - 0.50 / [(0.50 * 0.50) / 300]

z = -0.58

P-value = 0.7185

= 0.05

P-value >

Fail to reject the null hypothesis.

There is no sufficient evidence to support the claim.

Residents of the Shire, being genearally distrustful of wizards,
give Gandalf an approval rating of 37%
Find the probability that fewer than 18 residents of the

One of the more popular statistics reported in the media is the
president's job approval rating. The approval rating is reported as
the proportion of the population who approve of the job that the
sitting president is doing and is typically based on a random
sample of registered voters where the sample size is the same week
to week. Complete parts (a) and (b) below. a) This proportion
tends to fluctuate from week to week. Name some reasons for the...

Home loan approval
Suppose the time that it takes a certain large bank to approve a
home loan is normally distributed with mean (in days) μ and
standard deviation σ = 1. The bank advertises that it approves
loans in 5 days, on average, but measurements on a random sample of
100 loan applications to this bank gave a mean approval time of 5.2
days. Is this evidence that the mean time to approval is actually
more than advertised?

A professor claimed that a majority (more than 50%) of her
students believe in ghosts. To test her claim she polled 250
students. Of those polled 145 said yes, they believe in ghosts.
With a significance level of α=0.05 do these results support her
claim?
What is the decision, reject the null or fail to reject the
null? Is the claim supported?

6. In 1974, then president Richard Nixon had an approval rating
of 24% (so, 24% of the U.S. population approved of his work as
president).
(a) Suppose the Nixon administration claimed to have polled 100%
U.S. citizens at random and claims that 68 of them approved of
Nixon. How likely is this claim? (that is, determine the
probability of this actually happening given that the true approval
rating is 24%....)
(b) Suppose that a news program wants to collect viewpoints...

A report from the national center for education
statistics claimed that more than 2/3 of undergraduates get some
form of financial aid you take a random sample of 400 under
graduates from the US and found that 300 to receive some form of
financial aid test the claim at a equals 0.05. use this scenario
to
1)state the alternative and null hypothisis
2) Calculate the test static
3) Identify the value
4)make your decision
5) interpret the results

1. A political pro claims that the presidents approval rating
has fallen below 25% (.25). A company that reviews data is called
to test the claim. In a random sample of 500 citizens, the pollster
finds that 90 individuals approve of presidents performance.
a. State the null and alternative hypotheses to test the pros
claim
b. Using a level of significance of .05, determine the critical
value for the test.
c. Draw a diagram for the test that shows the...

3) A company says that its product has a 95% positive approval
rating. A polling company found that 89% of 500 people surveyed
approved of the product. Construct a 90% proportion confidence
interval based on this data and determine whether the data supports
the 95% positive approval rating claim.
Start by using the binomial distribution (p ̂ + q ̂)n = 1, and
x ̅ = np ̂.
Use Summary 5b, Table 1, Column 3.

A research conducted by the University of Michigan claimed that
there are more female drivers in the USA than male drivers.A
researcher decides to test this claim on his state.In his simple
random sample of 900 observations,he noticed that 468 of 900 were
women.At = 0.05,is there enough evidence to support the claim?
(Use the P-value method where (z < 1.20) = 0.8849)
