1. 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 value, what is the conclusion we test at 0.05 level significance?

2. 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?

3. 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?

Answer #1

**Question 1:**

As we are trying to test here whether the mean time of Facebook visits has increased, therefore the null and the alternate hypothesis here are given as:

The test statistic here is computed as:

Now as this is a one tailed test, we get from the standard normal tables:

p = P(Z > 2.3125) = 0.0104

Now as the p-value here is 0.0104 < 0.05 which is the level of significance, therefore the test is significant and we can reject the null hypothesis here and conclude that the mean time of Facebook visits has increased.

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

compute the P value. Based on...

Question 14
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

A random sample of 64 second-graders in a certain school
district are given a standardized mathematics skills test.
The sample mean score is 51.21. 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. Round
to four decimal places.

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...

28. You are the manager of a restaurant for a fast-food
franchise. Last month, the mean waiting time at the drive-through
window for branches in your geographical region, as measured from
the time a customer places an order until the time the customer
receives the order, was 3.7 minutes. You select a random sample of
81 orders. The sample mean waiting time is 3.86 minutes, with a
sample standard deviation of 0.9 minute. Complete parts (a) and
(b) below.
a....

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, a U.S.
government agency, 17.3% of 8th graders in 2010 had used marijuana
at some point in their lives. A school official hopes to show the
percentage is lower in his district, testing H0: p =
0.173 versus Ha: p < 0.173.
The health department for the district uses anonymous random
sampling and finds that 10% of 80 eighth graders surveyed had used
marijuana.
Is the sample size condition for conducting a...

For this problem, please do all 5-Steps: 1. State Null,
Alternate Hypothesis, Type of test, & Level of significance. 2.
Check the conditions. 3. Compute the sample test statistic, draw a
picture and find the P-value. 4. State the conclusion about the
Null Hypothesis. 5. Interpret the conclusion. A car insurance
company has determined that the mean annual car insurance cost for
a family in the town of Watlington is $1716. A researcher wants to
perform a hypothesis test to...

The population mean waiting time to check out of a supermarket
has historically been 4 minutes. In an effort to reduce the waiting
time, you, as store manager, conducted an experiment with infrared
cameras that use body heat and in-store software to determine how
many lanes should be opened. To test the effectiveness of this
process, you selected a random sample of 100 customers and recorded
their waiting time. For this sample, the mean waiting time to check
out was...

In an advertisement, a pizza shop claims that its mean delivery
time is less than 15 minutes. A random selection of 16
delivery times has a sample mean of 14 minutes. It is known that
the population is a normal distribution with standard deviation of
delivery time is 2 minutes. Perform hypothesis test on the claim at
α = 0.05.
