In a simple random sample of 1000 people taken from City A, 13% are senior citizens. In an independent simple random sample of 600 people taken from City B, 17% are senior citizens. Is the percent of senior citizens different in the two cities? Or is this just chance variation?

Answer in the steps described in Problems 4-6.

4) Under the null hypothesis, the percent of senior citizens in each of the two cities is estimated to be ________ %.

13 or 13.5 or 14 or 14.5 or 15 or 15.5 or 16 or 16.5 or 17 or 17.5 ?

5) Under the null hypothesis, the estimated standard error of the difference between the percents of senior citizens in the two samples is closest to _________%

1 or 1.2 or 1.4 or 1.6 or 1.8 or 2 ?

6) The P-value of the test is closest to _______%, so the null hypothesis is rejected.

1 or 2 or 3 or 4 ?

    -2.6 is not correct

    P5
    Use the t-curve to obtain the p-value.
    For this question you need to have answered correctly questions 3 and 4

    P6
    just understand the significance of P-value and how do the conclusion
