Question

It is known that roughly 2/3 of all human beings have a dominant
right foot or eye. Is there also right-sided dominance in kissing
behavior? An article reported that in a random sample of 121
kissing couples, both people in 77 of the couples tended to lean
more to the right than to the left. (Use *α* = 0.05.)

(a) If 2/3 of all kissing couples exhibit this right-leaning behavior, what is the probability that the number in a sample of 121 who do so differs from the expected value by at least as much as what was actually observed? (Round your answer to three decimal places.)

(b) Does the result of the experiment suggest that the 2/3
figure is implausible for kissing behavior?

State the appropriate null and alternative hypotheses.

*H*_{0}: *p* = 2/3

*H*_{a}: *p* > 2/3*H*_{0}:
*p* = 2/3

*H*_{a}: *p* <
2/3 *H*_{0}: *p* =
2/3

*H*_{a}: *p* ≤ 2/3*H*_{0}:
*p* = 2/3

*H*_{a}: *p* ≠ 2/3

Calculate the test statistic and determine the *P*-value.
(Round your test statistic to two decimal places and your
*P*-value to four decimal places.)

z = ______.

P-Value = ______.

State the conclusion in the problem context.

Do not reject the null hypothesis. There is sufficient evidence to conclude that the true proportion of right-leaning behavior differs from 2/3.Reject the null hypothesis.

Answer #1

n = 121, x = 77

p̄ = x/n = 0.6364

p = 2/3 = 0.6667

(a) P( |p̄ -p| > (0.6364 - 0.6667))

= P(z > (0.6364 - 0.6667)/√(0.6667 * 0.3333/121))

= P( z > -0.71)

= 1- P(z < -0.71)

Using excel function:

= 1 - NORM.S.DIST(-0.71, 1)

= **0.761**

(b) Null and alternative hypotheses.

*H*_{0}: *p* = 2/3

*H*_{a}: *p* ≠ 2/3

Test statistic:

z = (p̄ -p)/√(p*(1-p)/n) = (0.6364 - 0.6667)/√(0.6667 *
0.3333/121) = **-0.71**

p-value = 2*(1-NORM.S.DIST(ABS(-0.7079), 1)) = 0.4790

State the conclusion in the problem context.

Do not reject the null hypothesis. There is not sufficient evidence to conclude that the true proportion of right-leaning behavior differs from 2/3.

A random sample of 149 recent donations at a certain blood bank
reveals that 84 were type A blood. Does this suggest that the
actual percentage of type A donations differs from 40%, the
percentage of the population having type A blood? Carry out a test
of the appropriate hypotheses using a significance level of
0.01.

The desired percentage of SiO2 in a certain type of aluminous
cement is 5.5. To test whether the true average percentage is 5.5
for a particular production facility, 16 independently obtained
samples are analyzed. Suppose that the percentage of SiO2 in a
sample is normally distributed with σ = 0.32 and that x = 5.21.
(Use α = 0.05.) (a) Does this indicate conclusively that the true
average percentage differs from 5.5? State the appropriate null and
alternative hypotheses. H0:...

What percentage of the population live in their state of birth?
According to the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey,
the figure ranges from 25% in Nevada to 78.7% in Louisiana.† The
average percentage across all states and the District of Columbia
is 57.7%. The data in the DATAfile HomeState are consistent with
the findings in the American Community Survey. The data are for a
random sample of 120 Arkansas residents and for a random sample of
180 Virginia residents....

To obtain information on the corrosion-resistance properties of
a certain type of steel conduit, 45 specimens are buried in soil
for a 2-year period. The maximum penetration (in mils) for each
specimen is then measured, yielding a sample average penetration of
x = 53.2 and a sample standard deviation of s =
4.2. The conduits were manufactured with the specification that
true average penetration be at most 50 mils. They will be used
unless it can be demonstrated conclusively that...
