Question 1
llowsky Page 505 Ex 77
An article in the
San Jose Mercury News
stated that students in
the California state university system take 4.5 years, on average,
to finish their undergraduate degrees.
Suppose you believe that the mean time is longer. You conduct a
survey of 49 students and obtain a sample mean of 5.1 with a
sample standard deviation of 1.2 and then perform a hypothesis
at a 1% significance level using the Critical Value procedure.
What is the null and alternate hypothesis for this hypothesis test?
a Ho: μ = 4.5, Ha: μ > 5.1
b Ho: μ = 4.5, Ha: μ < 5.1
c Ho: μ = 4.5, Ha: μ > 4.5
d Ho: μ = 4.5, Ha: μ < 4.5
________
What is the numerical value of
α
for this test?
Enter answer as a 2 place decimal with a 0 to the left of
the decimal point.
Do not enter answer as a percent.
________
What is the appropriate distribution for performing this
test?
a z distribution
b t distribution
c Either distribution
d Neither. This question does not depend on knowing
the appropriate distribution.
Select and enter the appropriate letter
________
What is the critical value for the test statistic?
Enter answer as a 3 place decimal rounded to 3 decimal places.
________
What is the numerical value of the test statistic?
Enter answer as a decimal rounded to 1 decimal place.
________
Based upon the Hypothesis test what is your decision?
a There is insufcient evidence, based upon the data,
to accept the alternate hypothesis.
b There is sufcient evidence, based upon the data, to
accept the alternate hypothesis.
c It is not possible to make a decision (null or
alternate), based upon the data.
d A strong case could be made For either decision (null
or alternate) based upon the data.
