than that for all Playbill readers.b. What is the p-value based on the sample of 60 theater attendees in the Bay Area?

c. Use α =.01 as the level of significance. What is your conclusion?8. #67. The U.S. Energy Administration reported that the mean price for a gallon of regular gasoline in the United States was $2.357 (U.S. Energy Administration, January 30, 2006). Data for a sample of regular gasoline prices at 50 service stations in the Lower Atlantic states are contained in the data file named Gasoline. Conduct a hypothesis test to determine whether the mean price for a gallon of gasoline in the Lower Atlantic states is different from the national mean. Use α =.05 for the level of significance, and state your conclusion.(Gasoline.xls)9. #68. A study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that 23.3% of adults are smokers and that roughly 70% of those who do smoke indicate that they want to quit (Associated Press, July 26, 2002). CDC reported that, of people who smoked at some point in their lives, 50% have been able to kick the habit. Part of the study suggested that the success rate for quitting rose by education level. Assume that a sample of 1 00 college graduates who smoked at some point in their lives showed that 64 had been able to successfully stop smoking.a. State the hypotheses that can be used to determine whether the population of college graduates has a success rate higher than the overall population when it comes to breaking the smoking habit.b. Given the sample data, what is the proportion of college graduates who, having smoked at some point in their lives, were able to stop smoking?c. What is the p-value? At α =.01, what is your hypothesis testing conclusion?
