Question

1. A random sample of 64 second graders in a certain school district are given a standardized mathematics skills test. The sample mean score is 51.93. Assume the standard deviation for the population of test scores is 15. The nationwide average score on this test is 50. The school superintendent wants to know whether the second graders in her school district have greater math skills than the nationwide average. Perform the hypothesis test and compute the P value. Based on your P value, what is the conclusion if we test at 0.05 level of significance?

2. Suppose that the mean price of a home in Denver, Colorado in 2008 was 225.3 thousand dollars. A random sample of 49 homes sold in 2010 had a mean price of 200.8 thousand dollars. A real estate firm wants to test to see if the mean price of 2010 differs from the mean price in 2008. Assume that the population standard deviation is 140. Perform the hypothesis test and compute the P value. Based on your P value, what is the conclusion if we test at the 0.05 level of significance? Expert Answer

Answer #1

Given n=64

The population mean

We wants to test the claim that whether the second graders in her school district have greater math skills than the nationwide average

The Hypothesis testing Problem is

The test statistics is

Pvalue is P(Z>=1.0293) =0.1516694

### By using R command

> 1-pnorm(1.0293,0,1)

[1] 0.1516694

Here P value is 0.1517 which is greater han 0.05, Hence we are unable to reject the null hypothesis at 5% level of significance.

Therefore we can not justify the claim that the second graders in her school district have greater math skills than the nationwide average

Question 12
A random sample of 64 second-graders in a certain school
district are given a standardized mathematics skills test. The
sample mean score is 51.12 . Assume the standard deviation for the
population of test scores is 15. The nationwide average score on
this test is 50. The school superintendent wants to know whether
the second-graders in her school district have greater math skills
than the nationwide average. Perform the hypothesis test and
compute the P-value.

A study showed that in a certain month, the mean time spent per
visit to Facebook was 19.5 minutes. Assumes the standard deviation
of the population is 8 minutes. Suppose that a simple random sample
of 100 visits in that month has a sample mean of 21.35 minutes. A
social scientist is interested in knowing whether the mean time of
Facebook visits has increased. Perform the hypothesis test and
compute the P-value.
Based on the P...

Suppose that the mean price of a home in Denver, Colorado in
2008 was 225.3 thousand dollars. A random sample of 49 homes sold
in 2010 had a mean price of 198.7 thousand dollars. A real estate
firm wants to test to see if the mean price in 2010 differs from
the from mean price in 2008. Assume that the population standard
deviation is 140. Perform the hypothesis test and compute the

Are you smarter than a second-grader? A random sample of 55
second-graders in a certain school district are given a
standardized mathematics skills test. The sample mean score is
x=55. Assume the standard deviation of test scores is σ=10. The
nationwide average score on this test is 51. The school
superintendent wants to know whether the second-graders in her
school district have greater math skills than the nationwide
average. Use the α=0.01 level of significance and the P-value
method with...

an educator takes a random sample of theird graders in a large
school district and divides them into two reading groups . the mean
score on an exam of the 18 students in the new activities group was
51.72 with a standard deviation of 11.71. the mean score of the 20
students in the traditional group was 41.8 with a standerard
deviation of 17.45. is this evideenc ethat the students in the new
actibities group have a hugher reading score...

A random sample of 37 second graders who participated in sports
had manual dexterity scores with mean 32.29 and standard
deviation
4.14.
An independent sample of 37 second graders who did not
participate in sports had manual dexterity scores with mean 31.88
and standard deviation
4.86.
(a)
Test to see whether sufficient evidence exists to indicate that
second graders who participate in sports have a higher mean
dexterity score. Use
α = 0.05.
State the null and alternative hypotheses. (Us...

In a certain school district, it was observed that 33% of the
students in the element schools were classified as only children
(no siblings). However, in the special program for talented and
gifted children, 107 out of 287 students are only children. The
school district administrators want to know if the proportion of
only children in the special program is significantly different
from the proportion for the school district. Test at the ? = 0.05
level of significance.

In a certain school district, it was observed that 31% of the
students in the element schools were classified as only children
(no siblings). However, in the special program for talented and
gifted children, 77 out of 204 students are only children. The
school district administrators want to know if the proportion of
only children in the special program is significantly different
from the proportion for the school district. Test at the
α=0.05α=0.05 level of significance.

A simple random sample of 23 third-grade children from a certain
school district is selected, and each is given a test to measure
his/her reading ability. You are interested in calculating a 90%
confidence interval for the population mean score. In the sample,
the mean score is 64 points and the standard deviation is 14
points. What is the margin of error associated with the confidence
interval?
