Question

The mean weight of newborns in the U.S. is 3420g. A random sample of n = 15 Norwegian babies had the mean birth weight ¯x = 3750 grams and standard deviation s = 498 grams.

(a) At 5% significance level conduct a hypotheses test to determine whether mean weight of all Norwegian newborns is di↵erent from the mean birth weight of U.S. babies.

(b) Interpret your answer from part (a).

Answer #1

Birth weight, in grams, of newborn babies are normally
distributed with a mean of 3290 grams and a standard deviation of
520 grams. Find the percentage of newborns that weigh between 3000
and 4000 grams. Consider again the birth weights of newborn babies,
where the mean weight is 3290 grams and the standard deviation is
520 grams. Find the weight, in grams, that would separate the
smallest 4% of weights of newborns from the rest.

low-birth-weight babies - Researchers in Norway an-
alyzed data on the birth weights of 400,000 newborns
over a 6-year period. The distribution of birth weights
is Normal with a mean of 3668 grams and a standard
deviation of 511 grams.Babies that weigh less than
2500 grams at birth are classified as “low birth weight.”
(a) What percent of babies will be identified as low birth
weight?
(b) Find the quartiles of the birth weight distribution.

It is known that the birth weight of newborn babies in
the U.S. has a mean of 7.1 pounds with a standard deviation of 1.5
pounds. Suppose we randomly sample 36 birth certificates from the
State Health Department, and record the birth weights of these
babies.
The sampling distribution of the average birth weights
of random samples of 36 babies has a mean equal to ______ pounds
and a standard deviation of ______ pounds.
What is the probability the...

A study studied the birth weight of 2,817 babies born in the
United States. The mean weight was 3334 grams with a standard
deviation of 871 grams. Assume that birth weight data are
approximately bell-shaped. Estimate the number of newborns who
weighed between 1492 grams and 4976 grams. Write only a number as
your answer

The mean birth weight of male babies born to 121 mothers taking
a vitamin supplement is
3.633.63
kilograms with a standard deviation of
0.630.63
kilogram. Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that
the mean birth weight of all babies born to mothers taking the
vitamin supplement is equal to 3.39 kilograms, which is the mean
for the population of all male babies.
State the null and alternative hypotheses. Find the z-score and
the P value and make...

A U.S. dime is supposed to weight 2.268 grams. A random sample
of 15 circulated dimes showed a mean weight of 2.256 grams with a
standard deviation of .026 grams.
a. Using α=.05 is the mean weight of all circulated dimes lower
than the specification State your hypothesis and your decision
rule.

1. In the study examining socioeconomic differences in birth
weight, the mean birth weight for babies born to n1=32
mothers with a college education was 2998 grams with a standard
deviation of 230 grams, while the mean birth weight for babies born
to n2=41 mothers with no more than a high school
education was 2765 grams with a standard deviation of 332 grams.
Which of the following states the appropriate hypotheses for
testing if the mean birth weight between these...

Assume that a simple random sample has been selected from a
normally distributed population and test the given claim. In a
study of the effects of prenatal cocaine use on infants, the
following sample data were obtained for weights at birth: n = 193,
= 2731 grams, s = 662 grams. a) Use a 0.01 significance level to
test the claim that babies born to cocaine users have a mean weight
that is less than the mean of 3103 grams...

Suppose babies born in a large hospital have a mean weight of
3200 grams, and a standard deviation of 526 grams. If 100 babies
are sampled at random from the hospital, what is the probability
that the mean weight of the sample babies would differ from the
population mean by less than 50 grams?
