Thirty six GGC students were sampled to determine their average age. The GGC website indicates that the average age of students was 20 years old, and you decided to conduct an upper tail test because you think the average age is higher. You collected the above information. What is the p-value of your hypothesis test.

One-Sample Z

Test of μ = 20 vs > 20
The assumed standard deviation = 12

N Mean SE Mean 95% Lower Bound Z P
36 24.60 2.00 21.31 2.30 0.0107

P value = 0.0107

2

since p value 0.0107 <0.05 so null hypothesis should be rejected

Test and CI for One Proportion

Test of p = 0.75 vs p ≠ 0.75

Sample X N Sample p 95% CI Z-Value P-Value
1 80 100 0.800000 (0.721601, 0.878399) 1.15 0.248

Using the normal approximation.

z = 1.15

4 p value is 0.248
