Question

A local casino operator was interested in finding ways to attract younger customers and decided to analyze the ages of customers playing different games. A sample of 25 people playing the slot machines had an average age of 48.7 years with a standard deviation of 6.8. A sample of 35 people playing the roulette wheel had an average age of 50.5 years with a standard deviation of 3.2.

Can it be concluded that the mean age of those playing the slot machines is less than the mean age of those playing the roulette wheel.

Perform the appropriate hypothesis test with a significance level of 0.05.

**Do your work in an Excel file. Make Excel do the test
statistic calculation.!!!!!!!!!!!**

Answer #1

The test hypothesis is

Now, the value of test static can be found out by following formula:

Using Excel's function , the P-value for t0 = -1.371 in an power-tailed t-test with 58 degrees of freedom can be computed as

Since P = 0.0878 > 0.05, we fail to reject the null hypothesis

Degrees of freedom on the t-test statistic are n1 + n2 - 2 = 25 + 35 - 2 = 58

This implies that

Since, the t distribution is symmetric about zero, so -t{0.05, 58}

Since , we fail to reject the null hypothesis

A car company has made attracting younger customers a priority.
Prior to a recent ad campaign aimed at younger customers, the
average age of the company's customers was 52 years old. After
running the ad campaign, the company collected information on the
ages of its new customers. The car company conducts a one-mean
hypothesis at the 5% significance level, to test whether the mean
customer age is less than 52 years old.
(a) H0:μ=52; Ha:μ<52, which is a left-tailed test....

The owner of a local phone store wanted to determine how much
customers are willing to spend on the purchase of a new phone. In a
random sample of 10 phones purchased that day, the sample mean was
$473.426 and the standard deviation was $29.1709. Calculate a 95%
confidence interval to estimate the average price customers are
willing to pay per phone.

The mean salary of federal government employees on the General
Schedule is $59,593. The average salary of 30 state employees who
do similar work is $58,800 with σσ= $1500. At the 0.01 level of
significance, can it be concluded that state employees earn on
average less than federal employees?
