In: Statistics and Probability

You are to test if the average SAT score in the high school students of Ontario is greater than 495. You set the hypotheses as below:

H_{0}: µ = 495 vs Ha: µ > 495

If the SRS of 500 students were selected and the standard deviation has been known to 100, with alpha = 0.05, answer the followings.

a. What is the Type I error?

b. What is the Type II error if the true population mean is 510. Explain it.

c. What is the power if the true population mean is 510? Explain it.

Please show your work and thank you SO much in advance! You are helping a struggling stats student SO much!

**ANSWER::**

The values of sample mean X̅ for which null hypothesis is
rejected

Z = ( X̅ - µ ) / ( σ / √(n))

Critical value Z(α/2) = Z( 0.05 /2 ) = 1.645

1.645 = ( X̅ - 495 ) / ( 100 / √( 500 ))

X̅ >= 502.3567

**Part
a)**

X ~ N ( µ = 495 , σ = 100 )

P ( X > 502.3567 ) = 1 - P ( X < 502.3567 )

Standardizing the value

Z = ( X - µ ) / ( σ / √(n))

Z = ( 502.3567 - 495 ) / ( 100 / √ ( 500 ) )

Z = 1.645

P ( ( X - µ ) / ( σ / √ (n)) > ( 502.3567 - 495 ) / ( 100 /
√(500) )

P ( Z > 1.64 )

P ( X̅ > 502.3567 ) = 1 - P ( Z < 1.64 )

P ( X̅ > 502.3567 ) = 1 - 0.95

P ( X̅ > 502.3567 ) = 0.05

**P ( Type I error ) α = 0.05**

**Part
b)**

X ~ N ( µ = 510 , σ = 100 )

P ( X < 502.3567 )

Standardizing the value

Z = ( X - µ ) / (σ/√(n)

Z = ( 502.3567 - 510 ) / ( 100 / √500 )

Z = -1.7091

P ( ( X - µ ) / ( σ/√(n)) < ( 502.3567 - 510 ) / ( 100 / √(500)
)

P ( X < 502.3567 ) = P ( Z < -1.71 )

P ( X̅ < 502.3567 ) = 0.0437

P ( X̅1 < 502.3567 | µ = 510 ) = 0.0437

**P ( Type II error ) ß = 0.0437**

**Part
c)**

**Power of test is ( 1 - ß ) = 0.9563**

In order to estimate the average combined SAT score for students
at a particular high school, a random sample of 100 students was
selected and the sample mean was determined to be 870 with a sample
standard deviation of 12 points.
a) Determine the error (for a 95% confidence interval) involved
when trying to use the data from the sample to estimate the
population.
b) Use the information in part A to help construct a 95% confidence
interval estimate for...

A university wants to test the claim that the average SAT score
for in-state (I) students is less than the average SAT score for
out-of-state (O) students. It will use random samples of 50
in-state students and 45 out-of-state students. Choose the
appropriate math symbol to replace the "?" in both the null and
alternative hypotheses shown below.

You wish to see if a difference exists in the average SAT score
for students at two local colleges. A random sample of 200 students
from College A had an average SAT score of 1641.7 with a standard
deviation of 28.4. A random sample of 178 students from College B
had an average SAT score of 1629.8 with a standard deviation of
25.6. Does this show, at 95% confidence, a difference in the
average SAT scores? Be sure to state...

Ten years ago the mean Math SAT score of all high school
students who took the test in a small high school was 490, with a
standard deviation of 80. This year, a researcher took the scores
of a random sample of 16 students in the high school who took the
SAT.
The mean score of these 16 students is (X bar) = 530. In addition,
the researcher assumes that the population standard deviation
continues to be σ = 80....

A researcher wants to determine whether high school students who
attend an SAT preparation course score significantly different on
the SAT than students who do not attend the preparation course. For
those who do not attend the course, the population mean is 1050 (μ
= 1050). The 16 students who attend the preparation course average
1150 on the SAT, with a sample standard deviationof 300. On the
basis of these data, can the researcher conclude that the
preparation course has...

Twenty five high school students complete a preparation program
for taking the SAT test. Here are the SAT scores from the 25
students who completed the SAT prep program: 434 694 457 534 720
400 484 478 610 641 425 636 454 514 563 370 499 640 501 625 612 471
598 509 531 The mean of these scores is 536.00. We know that the
population average for SAT scores is 500 with a standard deviation
of 100. The question...

A. The average SAT score of students is 1110, with a standard
deviation ≈ 120.
If a sample of n = 25 students is selected, what is the
probability that the sample mean would be > 1150? That is, what
is p(M>1150)?
B. Which of the following will decrease statistical power?
SELECT ALL THAT APPLY.
a smaller sample size
a larger effect size

a larger alpha

3. A researcher is trying to determine the average SAT score for
2018 SAT test-takers. (which is known to follow normal
distribution). He gathers a sample of 11 students and calculates x
̄ = 990 and s = 230. What is the 95% confidence interval for the
mean IQ of Canadians, based off of this sample?
