What do you conclude at α = .05 about the claim that women are 25% higher than men on preference for white wine? A. Reject the null hypothesis B. Cannot reject the null hypothesis Critical value Z = 1.645 - 2.397 is not greater than 1.645 so fail to reject the null AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Analysis Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 5 Topic: Two independent population proportions 1-927 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 135. The registrar at a state college is interested in determining whether there is a difference of more than one credit hour between male and female students in the average number of credit hours taken during a term. She selected a random sample of 60 male and 60 female students and observed the following sample information. Setup the alternative hypothesis to test the claim. A. µf - µm ≠ 0 B. µf - µm ≠ 1 C. µf - µm > 1 D. µf - µm < 1 AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Two independent population means 1-928 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 136. The registrar at a state college is interested in determining whether there is a difference of more than one credit hour between male and female students in the average number of credit hours taken during a term. She selected a random sample of 60 male and 60 female students and observed the following sample information. Calculate the test statistic to be used in the analysis.

The registrar at a state college is interested in determining whether there is a difference of more than one credit hour between male and female students in the average number of credit hours taken during a term. She selected a random sample of 60 male and 60 female students and observed the following sample information. What do you conclude if z = 1.73 at α = .01? A. Reject the null hypothesis B. Don't reject the null hypothesis Z = 1.73 is not greater than Z.01 = 2.33 AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Two independent population means 138. Suppose that a realtor is interested in comparing the price of midrange homes in two cities in a Midwestern state. She conducts a small survey in the two cities looking at the price of midrange homes. Assume equal population variances. Setup the alternative hypothesis to test the claim that there is a difference in the mean price of midrange homes of the two cities. A. µa - µb = 0 B. µa - µb ≠ 0 C. µa - µb > 0 D. µa - µb < 0 AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 2 Topic: Two independent population means 1-930 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 139. Suppose that a realtor is interested in comparing the price of midrange homes in two cities in a Midwestern state.

Suppose that a realtor is interested in comparing the price of midrange homes in two cities in a Midwestern state. She conducts a small survey in the two cities looking at the price of midrange homes. Assume equal population variances. Test the claim at = .01 where the pooled variance = 4335357.143. A.
