Results from previous studies showed 79% of all high school seniors from a certain city plan to attend college after graduation. A random sample of 200 high school

seniors from this city reveals that 162 plan to attend college. Does this indicate that the percentage has increased from that of previous studies? Test at the 5%

level of significance.

A.More seniors are going to college

B.Reject H0. There is enough evidence to support the claim that the proportion of students planning to go to college is now greater than .79.

C.Cannot determine

D.Do not reject H0. There is not enough evidence to support the claim that the proportion of students planning to go to college is greater than .79.

In an article appearing in Today’s Health a writer states that the average number of calories in a serving of popcorn is 75. To determine if the average number of

calories in a serving of popcorn is different from 75, a nutritionist selected a random sample of 20 servings of popcorn and computed the sample mean number of

calories per serving to be 78 with a sample standard deviation of 7.

State the null and alternative hypotheses.

A.H0: = 75, H1: > 75

B.H0: = 75, H1: ≠ 75

C.H0: 75, H1: < 75

Reset SelectionQuestion 11 of 20 1.0 Points

A lab technician is tested for her consistency by taking multiple measurements of cholesterol levels from the same blood sample. The target accuracy is a variance in

measurements of 1.2 or less. If the lab technician takes 16 measurements and the variance of the measurements in the sample is 2.2, does this provide enough evidence

to reject the claim that the lab technician’s accuracy is within the target accuracy?

State the null and alternative hypotheses.

A.H0: ≤ 1.2, H1: > 1.2

B.H0: ≠ 1.2, H1: = 1.2

C.H0: ≥ 1.2, H1: ≠ 1.2

Question 12 of 20 1.0 Points

Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), “E” or “e” (used in

scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker.

Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where “a” and “b” need to have explicitly stated values.

For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not.

At a university, the average cost of books per student has been $550 per student per semester. The Dean of Students believes that the costs are increasing and that the

average is now greater than $550. He surveys a sample of 40 students and finds that for the most recent semester their average cost was $630 with a standard deviation

of $120. What is the test value for this hypothesis test?

Test value: Round your answer to two decimal places as necessary. Question 13 of 20 1.0 Points

The CEO of a software company is committed to expanding the proportion of highly qualified women in the organization’s staff of salespersons. He believes that the

proportion of women in similar sales positions across the country is less than 45%. Hoping to find support for his belief, he directs you to test

H0: p .45 vs H1: p < .45.

In doing so, you collect a random sample of 50 salespersons employed by his company, which is thought to be representative of sales staffs of competing organizations

in the industry. The collected random sample of size 50 showed that only 18 were women.

What is the smallest level of significance at which you could reject the null in favor of the alternative hypothesis? Place your answer, rounded to 4 decimal places,

in the blank. For example, 0.1234 would be a legitimate entry. Question 14 of 20 1.0 Points

The ABC battery company claims that their batteries last 100 hours, on average. You decide to conduct a test to see if the company’s claim is true. You believe that

the mean life may be different from the 100 hours the company claims. You decide to collect data on the average battery life (in hours) of a random sample of n = 20

batteries. Some of the information related to the hypothesis test is presented below.

Test of H0: = 100 versus H1: 100

Sample mean 98.5

Std error of mean 0.777

Assuming the life length of batteries is normally distributed, if you wish to conduct this test at the 0.05 level of significance, what are the critical values that

you should use? Place the smaller critical value, rounded to 3 decimal places, in the first blank. For example, -1.234 would be a legitimate entry. . Place the

larger critical value, rounded to 3 decimal places, in the second blank. For example, 1.234 would be a legitimate entry. Question 15 of 20 1.0 Points

Let x be a random variable representing dividend yield of Australian bank stocks. We may assume that x has a normal distribution with = 2.8%. A random sample of 16

Australian bank stocks has a sample mean dividend yield of 8.91%. For the entire Australian stock market, the mean dividend yield is = 6.4%. If you wanted to test to

determine if these data indicate that the dividend yield of all Australian bank stocks is higher than 6.4%, what is the value of the test statistic? Place your

answer, rounded to 3 decimal places, in the blank. For example, 2.345 would be a legitimate entry. Question 16 of 20 1.0 Points

A medical doctor wishes to test the claim that the standard deviation of the systolic blood pressure of deep sea divers is greater than 450. To do so, she selected a

random sample of 25 divers and found s = 468.

Assuming that the systolic blood pressures of deep sea divers are normally distributed, the doctor would perform a chi-square test to test her research hypothesis. In

that case, what is the test value that she would compute.

Place your answer, rounded to 3 decimal places, in the blank. For example, 34.567 would be a legitimate entry. Question 17 of 20 1.0 Points
