143 Exercise 9.27 Exercise removed from textbook Exercise 9.28 Toastmasters International cites a February 2001 report by Gallop Poll that 40% of Americans fear public speaking. A student believes that less than 40% of students at her school fear public speak- ing. She randomly surveys 361 schoolmates and finds that 135 report they fear public speaking. Conduct a hypothesis test to determine if the percent at her school is less than 40%. ( Source: 3 ) Exercise 9.29 (Solution on p. 150.) In 2004, 68% of online courses taught at community colleges nationwide were taught by full-time faculty. To test if 68% also represents California’s percent for full-time faculty teaching the online classes, Long Beach City College (LBCC), CA, was randomly selected for comparison. In 2004, 34 of the 44 online courses LBCC offered were taught by full-time faculty. Conduct a hypothesis test to determine if 68% represents CA. NOTE: For a true test, use more CA community colleges. (Sources: Growing by Degrees by Allen and Seaman; Amit Schitai, Director of Instructional Tech- nology and Distance Learning, LBCC). NOTE: For a true test, use more CA community colleges. Exercise 9.30 According to an article in The New York Times (5/12/2004), 19.3% of New York City adults smoked in 2003. Suppose that a survey is conducted to determine this year’s rate. Twelve out of 70 randomly chosen N.Y. City residents reply that they smoke. Conduct a hypothesis test to determine is the rate is still 19.3%. Exercise 9.31 (Solution on p. 150.) The average age of De Anza College students in Winter 2006 term was 26.6 years old. An instructor thinks the average age for online students is older than 26.6. She randomly surveys 56 online students and finds that the sample aver- age is 29.4 with a standard deviation of 2.1. Conduct a hypothesis test. ( Source:
