Question

The number of hours spent on social media during a one-week period was recorded for a random sample of 45 university students. For these 45 students, the mean number of social media hours was 12.52, with a standard deviation of 2.5. Researchers want to determine if the mean number of hours that all university students spend on social media each week is greater than 12, with a 5% level of significance.

What is the value of the t statistic?

What is the p value?

Answer #1

Solution :

= 12

=12.52

S =2.5

n = 45

This is the right tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H0 : = 12

Ha : > 12

Test statistic = t

= ( - ) / S / n

= (12.52- 12) / 2.5 / 45

= 1.395

Test statistic = t = 1.395

P-value =0.0850

= 0.05

P-value ≥

0.0850 ≥ 0.05

Do not reject the null hypothesis .

There is insufficient evidence to suggest that

One researcher claims the national average time spent on social
media is 4 hours per week. A random sample of 404 individuals
showed a sample of 4.2 hours per week. If national standard
deviation is known to be 1.8, test if the true national average is
greater than the researcher’s claim when α=.05.

A recent findings reported that college students spend an
average of 4.5 hours on social media per person per day. The
population standard deviation is 2.5 hours per day. A researcher
took a random sample of 120 college students for making inferences
about the population of college students. Answer the following
questions about the sampling distribution of sample mean of number
of hours on social media.
1) The mean of this sample of n=120 belongs to a sampling
distribution. What...

25 randomly selected students took a survey on how long they
spent on social media. The mean number of minutes these students
spent on social media was 205.1 minutes with a standard deviation
of 150 minutes.The population of the time spent on social media is
normally distributed. Construct a 98%confidence interval for the
population standard deviation of the time students spend on social
media.

The national collegiate athletic association reported
that the mean number of hours spent per week on coaching and
recruiting by college football assistant coaches during the season
was 45 hours. A random sample of 40 assistant coaches showed the
sample mean to be 42 hours, with a standard deviation of 7.2

confidence interval for the population mean. (round to four decimal
places as needed)
b. what is the margin of error?...

Do female college students spend more time than male college
students watching TV? This was one of the questions investigated by
the authors of an article. Each student in a random sample of 46
male students at a university in England and each student in a
random sample of 38 female students from the same university kept a
diary of how he or she spent time over a three-week period.
For the sample of males, the mean time spent watching...

A survey among freshmen at a certain university revealed that
the number of hours spent studying the week before final exams was
approximately normally distributed with mean 25 and standard
deviation 7.
What proportion of students studied more than 20 hours?
What proportion of students studied less than 16 hours?
What proportion of the students studied between 25 and 40
hours?

Suppose that the amount of time INTI International University
students spend in the library
per week is normally distributed. A sample of 6 students is
selected at random, and the
sample mean computed as 13.83 hours with the standard deviation of
2.86 hour. Test at 1%
significance level whether the mean number of hours spend in the
library per week is less
than 15 hours.
