Question description

18. You choose an alpha level of .01 and then analyze your data.

a. What is the probability that you will make a Type I error given that the null hypothesis is true?

b. What is the probability that you will make a Type I error given that the null hypothesis is false?

20. True/false: It is easier to reject the null hypothesis if the researcher uses a smaller alpha (α) level.

13. You are conducting a study to see if students do better when they study all at

once or in intervals. One group of 12 participants took a test after studying for one hour continuously. The other group of 12 participants took a test after studying for three twenty minute sessions. The first group had a mean score of 75 and a variance of 120. The second group had a mean score of 86 and a variance of 100.

a. What is the calculated t value? Are the mean test scores of these two groups significantly different at the .05 level?

b. What would the t value be if there were only 6 participants in each group?  Would the scores be significant at the .05 level?

65. Previously, an organization reported that teenagers spent 4.5 hours per week, on average, on the phone. The organization

thinks that, currently, the mean is higher. Fifteen randomly chosen teenagers were asked how many hours per week they

spend on the phone. The sample mean was 4.75 hours with a sample standard deviation of 2.0. Conduct a hypothesis test.

The null and alternative hypotheses are:

a. Ho: x ¯ = 4.5, Ha : x ¯ > 4.5

b. Hoμ ≥ 4.5, Haμ < 4.5

c. Hoμ = 4.75, Haμ > 4.75

d. Hoμ = 4.5, Haμ > 4.5

71. Previously, an organization reported that teenagers spent 4.5 hours per week, on average, on the phone. The organization

thinks that, currently, the mean is higher. Fifteen randomly chosen teenagers were asked how many hours per week they

spend on the phone. The sample mean was 4.75 hours with a sample standard deviation of 2.0. Conduct a hypothesis test,

the Type I error is:

a. to conclude that the current mean hours per week is higher than 4.5, when in fact, it is higher

b. to conclude that the current mean hours per week is higher than 4.5, when in fact, it is the same

c. to conclude that the mean hours per week currently is 4.5, when in fact, it is higher

d. to conclude that the mean hours per week currently is no higher than 4.5, when in fact, it is not higher
