What is the probability the mean of 36 randomly selected test scores will have a mean test score between 155 and 165? (Tip. This will be a distribution of sample mean. Change σ from 24 to 24/√36).
15. A survey shows that 650 of the 1000 adult respondents believe in human activity driven global warming. Construct a 95% confidence interval estimate of the proportion of adults believing in global warming. Show work. Just the answer, without supporting work, will receive no credit.
16. A researcher claims the proportion of auto accidents that involve teenage drivers is less than 20%. ABC Insurance Company checks police records on 200 randomly selected auto accidents and notes that teenagers were at the wheel in 32 of them. Use a 0.05 significance level to test the researcher’s claim.
• Identify the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis. • Determine z-value for the test statistic • Use website https://www.socscistatistics.com/pvalues/normaldistribution.aspx
and determine the P-value for this test. • Is there sufficient evidence to support the researcher’s claim that the proportion of auto accidents that
involve teenage drivers is less than 20%? Explain.

17. Perform a Hypothesis Test if regular excise really helps weight loss. Table below shows results for 5 people doing 30- minute exercise every day for 6 months. Does the data below suggest that the regular exercise helps weight loss? Apply significance level 0.05
Subject Before After
1 250 240
2 240 235
3 215 210
4 220 200
5 200 190
• Identify the null hypothesis Ho and the alternative hypothesis HA. • Create column for d-column for differences between weight before and weight after. • Calculate mean (�̅� ) and standard deviation (s) for numbers in difference column.
• Determine the test statistic t = �̅� − 0 𝑠
• Use website https://www.socscistatistics.com/pvalues/tdistribution.aspx to find p-value. • Should we reject or do not reject Ho.

• This is Chi-Square Test of Uniform. Identify Ho and HA. • Given numbers represent Observed values (O). Expected values for Uniform distribution should
be the same for all 5 categories. To find Expected value (E) divide total number of answers by 5.
Create a table with O- and E-columns.
• Calculate (O-E)2/E for each category and find Chi-Square. • Use website https://www.socscistatistics.com/pvalues/chidistribution.aspx and find p-value. • Is there sufficient evidence to support Ho?
