Explanation & Answer

Buddy, complete work is enclosed herewith. If any query, kindly speak to me.

Question (22.) At a 0.05 significance level test the claim that the average GPA of LACC
students (including female and male) is less than 3.0.
Formulate the Null and Alternative Hypotheses
H 0 :   3.0 ; The average GPA of LACC students (including female and male) is 3.0

H1 :   3.0 ; The average GPA of LACC students (including female and male) is less than 3.0
In evaluating the claim, a right-tail test is appropriate since it is a one-directional statement that
could be rejected by an extreme result in one direction direction. The center of the hypothesized
distribution of sample means for samples of n  140 will be 3.14.
Select the Significance Level
For this test, we will use the 0.05 level of significance. The sum of the one tail areas will be 0.05.
Select the Test Statistic and Calculate Its Value
x   0 
The test statistic is t 
, and the t distribution will be used to describe the sampling
s

n
distribution of the mean for samples of n  140 . The center of the distribution is   3.14 , which
corresponds to t  0.0000 .Since the population standard deviation is unknown, s is used to
estimate. The sampling distribution has an estimated standard error of



s
n



0.542
140

 0.046

and the calculated value of t will be
t

x   3.14  3.0

 3.04
s
0.046
n

Identify the Critical Value for the Test Statistic and State the Decision Rule
For this test,  has been specified as 0.05. The number of degrees of freedom is
df  140  1  130 . The t distribution table is now used in finding the value of t that corresponds
to a one-tail area of 0.01 and139 degrees of freedom. We find this critical value to be
t c  1.656 .Since it is observed that t  3.04  t c  1.656 , it is then concluded that the null
hypothesis is not rejected.

Conclusion:
It is concluded that the null hypothesis Ho is not rejected. Therefore, there is not enough
evidence to claim that the population mean μ is less than 3.0, at the 0.05 significance level.
Question (23.) At a 0.05 significance level, can you reject the claim that more than 70% of
LACC students is going to transfer to a university?
The following information is provided: The sample size is N=140, the number of favorable cases
is X=47, and the sample proportion is p¯= 37 / 140  0.3357 , and the significance level is α=0.05
(1) Null and Alternative Hypotheses
The following null and alternative hypotheses need to be tested:

H0 : p  0
H1 : p  0
This corresponds to a right-tailed test, for which a z-test for one population proportion needs to
be used.
(2) Rejection Region
Based on the information provided, the significance level is α=0.05, and the critical value for a
right-t...
