Question

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the mean salary for registered nurses in Kentucky was $55,599. The distribution of salaries is assumed to be normally distributed with a standard deviation of $5,987. Someone would like to determine if registered nurses in Ohio have a greater average pay. To investigate this claim, a sample of 269 registered nurses is selected from the Ohio Board of Nursing, and each is asked their annual salary. The mean salary for this sample of 269 nurses is found to be $55,938.586.

- Completely describe the sampling distribution of the sample
mean salary when samples of size 269 are selected.
- mean: μ¯yμy¯ =
- standard deviation: σ¯yσy¯ = (round your answer to 4 decimal places)
- shape: the distribution of ¯yy¯ is Select an answer normally distributed not normally distributed because Select an answer the sample size is large the sample size is not large the population of salaries is normally distributed the population of salaries is not normally distributed

- What conjecture has been made?
- The mean salary for registered nurses in Ohio is $55,938.586.
- The mean salary for registered nurses in Ohio is greater than $55,938.586.
- The mean salary for registered nurses in Ohio is $55,599.
- The mean salary for registered nurses in Ohio is greater than $55,599.

- Using the distribution described in part a, what is the
probability of observing a sample mean of 55,938.586 or more?
- z = (round to 2 decimal places)
- probability = (include 4 decimal places)

- Based on the probability found, what conclusion can be reached?
- The probability would be classified as Select an answer large small . So, there Select an answer is is not evidence to support the conjecture that the mean salary for registered nurses in Ohio is greater than $55,599.

Answer #1

Ans:

Sampling distribution of y-bar

mean =**55599**

standard
deviation=5987/sqrt(269)=**365.0338 **

shape: the distribution of y-bar **is normally
distributed** because **the sample size is
large** **the population of salaries is normally
distributed**

The mean salary for registered nurses in Ohio **is greater
than $55,599.**

Test statistic:

z=(55938.586-55599)/(5987/sqrt(269))

z=**0.93**

Probability=P(z>0.930)=**0.1762**

The probability would be classified as **large** .
So, there **is not **evidence to
support the conjecture that the mean salary for registered nurses
in Ohio is greater than $55,599.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the mean salary for
registered nurses in Kentucky was $56,907. The distribution of
salaries is assumed to be normally distributed with a standard
deviation of $5,507. Someone would like to determine if registered
nurses in Ohio have a greater average pay. To investigate this
claim, a sample of 240 registered nurses is selected from the Ohio
Board of Nursing, and each is asked their annual salary. The mean
salary for this sample of...

The mean starting salary for nurses is $67,694 nationally. The
standard deviation is approximately $11,333. The starting salary is
normally distributed. A sample 35 starting salaries for nurses is
taken. Find the probability that the sample mean is more than
$68,000. Represent the probability with a graph.

In a large hospital, a nursing director selected a random sample
of 30 registered nurses and found that the mean of their ages was
30.2. The population standard deviation for the registered nurse
ages is 5.6. She selected a random sample of 40 nursing assistants
and found the mean of their ages was 31.7. The population standard
deviation of the ages for the assistants is 4.3. At the 1% level of
significance, test the claim that the mean age of...

A random sample of 18 registered nurses in a large hospital
showed that they worked on average 44.8 hours per week. The
standard deviation of the sample was 2.4. Estimate the mean of the
population with 95% confidence. Assume the variable is normally
distributed. Round intermediate answers to at least three decimal
places. Round your final answers to one decimal place.

A random sample of 16 registered nurses in a large hospital
showed that they worked on average 44.3 hours per week. The
standard deviation of the sample was 2.3. Estimate the mean of the
population with 99% confidence. Assume the variable is normally
distributed. Round intermediate answers to at least three decimal
places. Round your final answers to one decimal place.

A random sample of 19 registered nurses in a large hospital
showed that they worked on average 44.6 hours per week. The
standard deviation of the sample was 2.1. Estimate the mean of the
population with 90%confidence. Assume the variable is normally
distributed. Round intermediate answers to at least three decimal
places. Round your final answers to one decimal place.

The annual salaries of employees in a large company are
approximately normally distributed with a mean of $50,000 and a
standard deviation of $2000. In a sample of 20 employees, what is
the probability their mean salary is greater than or equal to
$60,000? (3 decimal places)

In a study of monthly salary distribution of residents in Paris
