Question

A researcher wishes to test the hypothesis that the mean age at first marriage for women in Texas is less than 23.2. In a sample of 69 Texas women, he finds that the average age is 23.5 with a standard deviation of 4.2.

Calculate the test statistic to two decimal places.

I must be using wrong formula FOR these types of problems, please show step by step, Thanks Business Analysis3363 homework

Answer #1

Here population standard deviation is unknown. So, we are going to use one sample t test.

We want to test the hypothesis that the mean age at first marriage for women in Texas is less than 23.2.

**Null hypothesis**: µ = 23.2

**Alternative
hypothesis**: µ < 23.2

- This is one-sided test.

We have given Population mean µ = 23.2

Sample mean (X) = 23.5

Sample standard deviation (S) = 4.2

Sample size (n) = 69

Test statistics (t) = (X - µ) / (S/ √n)

t = (23.5 - 23.2)/ (4.2/sqrt(69) = 0.593

**Test statistics t = 0.59**

**The test statistics is 0.59**

A medical researcher wants to determine if the average hospital
stay of patients that undergo a certain procedure is greater than
9.1 days. The hypotheses for this scenario are as follows: Null
Hypothesis: μ ≤ 9.1, Alternative Hypothesis: μ > 9.1. If the
researcher takes a random sample of patients and calculates a
p-value of 0.2003 based on the data, what is the appropriate
conclusion? Conclude at the 5% level of significance.
