Question

A random sample of 24 chemists from Washington state shows an
average salary of $43261 with a standard deviation of $972. A
random sample of 24 chemists from Florida state shows an average
salary of $42312 with a standard deviation of $952. A chemist that
has worked in both states believes that chemists in Washington make
a different amount than chemists in Florida. At αα =0.05 is this
chemist correct? Let Washington be sample 1 and Florida be sample
2.

The correct hypotheses are:

- H0:μ1≤μ2H0:μ1≤μ2

HA:μ1>μ2HA:μ1>μ2 (claim) - H0:μ1≥μ2H0:μ1≥μ2

HA:μ1<μ2HA:μ1<μ2 (claim) - H0:μ1=μ2H0:μ1=μ2

HA:μ1≠μ2HA:μ1≠μ2 (claim)

Since the level of significance is 0.05 the critical value is
2.013 and -2.013

The test statistic is: (round to 3 places)

The p-value is: (round to 3 places)

The decision can be made to:

- reject H0H0
- do not reject H0H0

The final conclusion is that:

- There is enough evidence to reject the claim that chemists in Washington make a different amount than chemists in Florida.
- There is not enough evidence to reject the claim that chemists in Washington make a different amount than chemists in Florida.
- There is enough evidence to support the claim that chemists in Washington make a different amount than chemists in Florida.
- There is not enough evidence to support the claim that chemists in Washington make a different amount than chemists in Florida.

A random sample of 17 chemists from Washington state shows an
average salary of $43209 with a standard deviation of $832. A
random sample of 15 chemists from Florida state shows an average
salary of $49207 with a standard deviation of $809. A chemist that
has worked in both states believes that chemists in Washington make
a different amount than chemists in Florida. At αα =0.10 is this
chemist correct? Let Washington be sample 1 and Florida be sample
2....

A researcher is interested in seeing if the average income of
rural families is different than that of urban families. To see if
his claim is correct he randomly selects 42 families from a rural
area and finds that they have an average income of $68532 with a
population standard deviation of $832. He then selects 47 families
from a urban area and finds that they have an average income of
$67140 with a population standard deviation of $809. Perform...

A random sample of
n1 = 49
measurements from a population with population standard
deviation
σ1 = 5
had a sample mean of
x1 = 8.
An independent random sample of
n2 = 64
measurements from a second population with population standard
deviation
σ2 = 6
had a sample mean of
x2 = 11.
Test the claim that the population means are different. Use
level of significance 0.01.(a) Check Requirements: What
distribution does the sample test statistic follow? Explain.

An airline claims that the no-show rate for passengers is less
than 8%. In a sample of 419 randomly selected reservations, 22 were
no-shows. At α = 0.01, test the airline's claim.
A.
P-value = 0.026 > 0.01; do not reject H0; There is not enough
evidence to support the airline's claim, that is less than 8%
B.
P-value = 0.019 > 0.01; do not reject H0; There is not enough
evidence to support the airline's claim, that is less...

A random sample of 49 measurements from one population had a
sample mean of 16, with sample standard deviation 3. An independent
random sample of 64 measurements from a second population had a
sample mean of 18, with sample standard deviation 4. Test the claim
that the population means are different. Use level of significance
0.01.
(a) What distribution does the sample test statistic follow?
Explain.
