QUIZ IV BIT 2405 Solutions
A random sample of 16 students selected from the student body of a large university had an average age of 25 years. We
want to determine if the average age of all the students at the university is significantly different from 24. Assume the
distribution of the population of ages is normal with a standard deviation of 2 years.

In order to determine the average price of hotel rooms in Atlanta, a sample of 64 hotels was selected. It was
determined that the average price of the rooms in the sample was $112. The population standard deviation is
known to be $16. Use a 0.05 level of significance and determine whether or not the average room price is
significantly different from $108.50.
