Question

Assume a recent sociological report states that university students drink 5.70 alcoholic drinks per week on average, with a standard deviation of 1.7201. Suppose Jason, a policy manager at a local university, decides to take a random sample of 170 university students to survey them about their drinking habits.

Determine the mean and standard deviation of the sampling distribution of the sample mean alcohol consumption. Provide your answer with precision to two decimal places.

mean of the sampling distribution ==

standard deviation of the sampling distribution ==

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that ,

mean = = 5.70

standard deviation = = 1.7201

n = 170

mean of the samoling distribution = 5.70

standard deviation of sampling distribution = / n = 1.7201/ 170=0.13

According to the website www.collegedrinkingprevention.gov,
“About 25 percent of college students report academic consequences
of their drinking including missing class, falling behind, doing
poorly on exams or papers, and receiving lower grades overall.” A
statistics student is curious about drinking habits of students at
his college. He wants to estimate the mean number of alcoholic
drinks consumed each week by students at his college. He plans to
use a 90% confidence interval. He surveys a random sample of 62
students....

The data set below shows the number of alcoholic drinks that
students at a certain university reported they had consumed in the
past month. Complete parts a through c. 13 15 16 17 12 14 17 19 13
13 a. Assume that the data set is a sample. Compute the range,
variance, standard deviation, and interquartile range for the data
set.

In a recent study, Lepp, Barkley, and Karpinski (2014) reported
that undergraduate students spend an average of 278.67 (standard
error of the mean = 9.79) minutes per day using their cell phones.
You may wonder whether cell phone usage at your university differs
significantly from Lepp, Barkley, and Karpinski’s (2014) findings.
Suppose a recent survey of students at your university found that
students spend 255 minutes per day using their cell phones.
Note that standard error of the mean and...

Recent research has suggested that adolescent drinking behaviors
have escalated. Assume national statistics presume that only 14% of
adolescents aged 13-17 engage in alcohol consumption. A sample of
58 participants in this age range is collected and 13 participants
report consuming alcohol on a regular basis.
1) Calculate the probability of observing the results witnessed
in the sample.
2) Determine the mean and standard deviation for the
distribution under the assumptions made in part A.

Today, full time college students report spending a mean of 27
hours per week on academic activities, both inside and outside of
the classroom. Assume the standard deviation of time spent on
academic activities is 4 hours. If you select a random sample of 50
full-time college students:
A. Describe the shape of the sampling distribution. How do you
know it is this shape?
B. Find the mean and standard deviation for the distribution of
the sample mean (x bar)...

A student group claims that first year students at a university
must study 2.5 hours per night during the
school week. A skeptic suspect that they study less than that on
average. A class survey finds that the
average study time claimed by 269 students is 137 minutes. Regard
these students as a random sample
of all first-year students and suppose we know that study times
follow a Normal distribution with
standard deviation of 65 minutes. Is there evidence that...

Over the last 20 years, the number of students who hold a job
while attending university fulltime has increased. Work
responsibilities may ‘compete’ for time and energy with course
responsibilities, and consequently, may affect student academic
success. An educational researcher is interested in determining
whether student employment influences academic success. The
research has obtained a relevant sample of university students, and
has determined the following information for each
student:
i. their employment status (specifically, the typical number of
hours worked...
