Unformatted text preview: critical value of t for p=.05. The likelihood is remote that a t of this magnitude with 939 degrees of freedom could be found by chance in a sample drawn from a population with a specified population mean of 40. Consequently, we reject the null hypothesis that the sample came from a population with the specified population mean. 5. The obtained t statistic of 3.92 with 956 degrees of freedom exceeds the critical value of t of 1.960. Consequently, it is not likely that the association between hours spent watching TV and sex is due to chance. It is more likely the result of an actual association between the # of hours spent watching TV and sex in the population. The null hypothesis, that there is no association between these 2 variables is rejected....
