statistic question

Perform the following hypothesis test using the critical-value approach.

A test of sobriety involves measuring the subject's motor skills. The mean score for men who are sober is known to be 35.0. A researcher would like to perform a hypothesis test to determine whether the mean score for sober women differs from 35.0. Twenty randomly selected sober women take the test and produce a mean score of 41.0 with a standard deviation of 3.7. Perform the hypothesis test at the 1% significance level. Remember to interpret your answer within the context of the problem.

Answer #1

Given that, sample size (n) = 20, sample mean = 41.0 and

sample standard deviation (s) = 3.7

The null and alternative hypotheses are,

H0 : μ = 35.0

Ha : μ ≠ 35.0

Test statistic is,

=> Test statistic = t = **7.252**

Degrees of freedom = 20 - 1 = 19

Using t-table we get, t-critical values at significance level of 0.01 with 19 degrees of freedom are, tcrit = ± 2.861

Decision Rule : Reject H0, if t < -2.861 or t > 2.861

Since, test statistic = t = 7.252 is greater than 2.861, we
**reject the null hypothesis.**

**Conclusion :** There is sufficient evidence to
conclude that the mean score for sober women differs from 35.0.

A test of sobriety involves measuring the subject's motor
skills. Twenty randomly selected sober subjects take the test and
produce a mean score of 37.1 with a standard deviation of 3.7. At
the 0.01 level of significance, test the claim that the true mean
score for all sober subjects is equal to 35.0.
Step 1: State the claim in symbolic form.

A. μ = 35.0
B. μ ≠ 35.0
C. μ < 35.0
D. μ >...

Assume that a simple random sample has been selected from a
normally distributed population and test the given claim. Use
either the traditional method or P-value method as indicated.
Identify the null and alternative hypotheses, test statistic,
critical value(s) or P-value (or range of P-values) as appropriate,
and state the final conclusion that addresses the original claim. A

Use the two-proportions z-test to perform the required
hypothesis test using the P-value approach.
Of 85 randomly selected women, 38 have tried some form of
alternative medicine. Of 90 randomly selected men, 23 have tried
some form of alternative medicine. At the 1% significance level, do
the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that women are
more likely than men to try alternative forms of medicine?

Perform the indicated hypothesis test. Assume that the
two samples are independent simple random samples selected from
normally distributed populations.
1) A researcher was interested in comparing the amount of time
spent watching television by women and by men. Independent simple
random samples of 14 women and 17 men were selected, and each
person was asked how many hours he or she had watched television
during the previous week. The summary statistic are as follows.
Women: xbar1= 12.2hr s1= 4.4...

Determine the critical value(s) of the test statistic for each
of the following small sample tests for the population mean where
the assumption of normality is satisfied. Round your answer to four
decimal places.
Left-tailed test,α=0.01,n=24
Right-tailed test ,α=0.1,n=8
Two-tailed test, α=0.05,n=12

For each situation, perform a hypothesis test for the population
mean. Be sure to show the null hypothesis H0 (with correct
parameter), the alternative hypothesis H1, the P-level you get from
ZTest, TTest, or 1-PropZTest (depending on whether you’re testing
for µ or p, and whether
σ is known or unknown), the result of the test
(i.e. reject / do not reject H0) and the conclusion (interpret the
result in English).

You will perform a Chi-Square test and an
ANOVA test. For each hypothesis test make sure to
report the following steps:
Identify the null hypothesis, Ho, and the alternative
hypothesis, Ha.
Determine whether the hypothesis test is left-tailed,
right-tailed, or two-tailed.
Find the critical value(s) and identify the rejection
region(s).
Find the appropriate standardized test statistic. If convenient,
use technology.
Decide whether to reject or fail to reject the null
hypothesis.
Interpret the decision in the context of the original...
