Null: m = 200 Alternative: m < 200

QUESTION 1.

You are using data from a simple random sample to test the given hypotheses. Which of the following collections of observations is further required to justify the use of a t distribution to compute the P-value?

The distribution of the cholesterol levels of the residents of the state is close to normal.

The distribution of the cholesterol levels of the residents of the state is close to normal, with an unknown mean.

The distribution of the cholesterol levels of the residents of the state is close to normal, with an unknown mean and an unknown SD.

QUESTION 2

The t distribution that should be used has ______ degrees of freedom.

QUESTION 3

The value of the t statistic is closest to

-2 -2.1 -2.2 -2.3 -2.4 -2.5 -2.6 -2.7 -2.8 -2.9 -3

QUESTION 4

The P-value of the test is closest to

0.5% 1% 1.5% 2% 2.5% 3%

QUESTION 5

The conclusion of the test is to

reject the null hypothesis

not reject the null hypothesis

Thank you!!!!!

**Anonymous**, Wednesday, August 7, 2013 at 10:06pmHonor Code

This can be found at edx org/honor and you are required to follow it. The course staff would like to express their appreciation of all the students who follow the honor code scrupulously.

The honor code is not just decoration or boilerplate; it sets out community standards that make the course grades and certificate meaningful, and indeed make the entire endeavor of the course worthwhile. Publishing course materials without proper attribution is theft of intellectual property; asking others to do your work for you is cheating. Please do not diminish the honest efforts of your fellow students by violating the honor code. Don’t steal or cheat.
