Question 3
1. The National Center for Education Statistics would like to test the hypothesis that the proportion of Bachelor’s degrees that were earned by women equals 0.60. A random sample of 140 college graduates with Bachelor degrees found that 75 were women. The National Center for Education Statistics would like to set α = 0.10. The conclusion for this hypothesis test would be that because the absolute value of the test statistic is

less than the absolute value of the critical value, we cannot conclude that the proportion of Bachelor’s degrees that were earned by women does not equals 0.60.

Question 13
1. A survey by American Express Spending reported that the average amount spent on a wedding gift for a close family member is $166. A random sample of 45 people who purchased wedding gifts for a close family member spent an average of $160.50. Assume that the population standard deviation is $38. Use a 95% confidence interval to test the validity of this report and choose the one statement that is correct.
