Answer #1

In a recent study at a local college, 48 students admitted that
they had tried alcohol at least once while under the legal drinking
age, while only 4 students said they had not. Is there enough data
to conduct a hypothesis test to see if the percentage of students
at the college who admit to drinking underage is the same as the
national percentage of 95%? Show work.

According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and
Alcoholism (NIAAA) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), 41%
of college students nationwide engage in "binge-drinking" behavior:
having five or more drinks on one occasion during the past two
weeks. A college president wonders if the proportion of students
enrolled at her college who binge drink is actually lower than the
national proportion. In a commissioned study, 340 students are
selected randomly from a list of all students enrolled at...

63% of students at one college drink coffee, and 16% of people
who drink coffee suffer from insomnia. What is the probability that
a randomly selected student drinks coffee and suffers from
insomnia?

5. One year, investigators studied the relationship between
alcohol consumption by cllege students and GPA. They surveyed a
simple sample of 4278 US college students and generated the
following stats:
x?=6
SDx=4
?=2.9
SDy=1.2
r= -0.6
where the x j = number of alcoholic drinks consumed per week by
the jth student, and y j = the year-end GPA of the jth student.

According to a previous study, the average height of college
students was 68 inches in Fall 2005. We are curious as
to whether the average height of college students has changed since
2005. We measure the heights of 50 students who have been randomly
selected and find a sample mean of 68.9 inches and standard
deviation of 3.2 inches. What conclusions can be made at the 0.05
significance level regarding whether the height of college students
has changed since 2005?

According to a study by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse
and Alcoholism, 19% of college students between the ages of 18 and
24 meet the criteria for alcohol abuse or dependence.
Coker University wants to determine whether it has a lower,
average, or higher rate of alcohol abuse than the national average.
A random sample of 49 students is selected, and evaluated for signs
of alcohol abuse or dependence.

b. Identify p...

According to a study, 21% of 507 female college students were
on a diet at the time of the study.
a) Construct a 99% confidence interval
for the true proportion of all female students who were on a diet
at the time of this study.
b) Explain what this interval
means.
c) Is it reasonable to think that only
17% of college women are on a diet?

A volunteer for the Drug & Alcohol Education Center was
investigating the attitudes of XYZ students towards binge drinking
on campus. A simple random sample of 730 students from all four
grade levels was taken. Each student was given the statement “Binge
drinking of LMU students has become too frequent and dangerous,”
and asked whether they strongly agreed, agreed, had no opinion,
disagreed, or strongly disagreed. The following contingency table
summarizes the results.
Complete the contingency table in order to...

A study conducted through the University of Wisconsin examined
food and housing insecurity among college students. In the study,
students from 2- and 4-year colleges were asked to classify
themselves based on relationship status, which had 5 options. The
probabilities for randomly selecting a student from a 4-year with a
particular relationship status is listed in the table below.
Relationship Status Single In a relationship Married Divorced
Widowed Probability 0.56 0.34 ? .01 .001
a. For the distribution above to...

According to a University of Michigan study, released in Fall
2019, 49% of College students in the U.S. believed that “whining”
in statistics courses should be banned. A recent survey of a sample
of 400 college students in the U.S., by Noel (a.k.a. “Son of a
Binomial!”), showed that 176 of them held this view. Find the
probability that the current proportion of college students that
share this view is more than 176 out of 400.
