35. On the average, a housewife with a husband and two children is estimated to work 55 hours or less per week on household-related activities. The hours worked during a week for a sample of eight housewives are: 58, 52, 64, 63, 59, 62, 62, and 55.

a. Use [pic] to test [pic]. What is your conclusion about the mean number of hours worked per week?

b. What can you say about the p-value?

40. Consider the following hypothesis test, [pic]. A sample of 400 provided a sample proportion of [pic].

a. At [pic], what is the rejection rule?

b. Compute the value of the test statistic [pic].

c. What is the p-value?

d. What is your conclusion?

41. Consider the following hypothesis test, [pic]. A sample of 300 is selected. Use [pic]. Provide the value of the test statistic [pic], the p-values, and your conclusion for each of the following sample results.

a. [pic]. b. [pic]. c. [pic]. d. [pic].

45. (data set: Students) A magazine claims that 25% of its readers are college students. A random sample of 200 readers resulted in the data set Students. A response of Yes indicates that the reader is a college student. Use a 0.10 level of significance to test [pic]. What is the p-value?

49. At least 20% of all workers are believed to be willing to work fewer hours for less pay to obtain more time for personal and leisure activities. A USA Today/CNN/Gallup poll with a sample of 596 respondents found 83 willing to work fewer hours for less pay to obtain more personal and leisure time (USA Today, April 10, 1995). Test [pic] using a 0.05 level of significance. What is your conclusion?

a. Suppose we want to develop an interval estimate of the difference in the mean wage rates between unionized and nonunionized women working in manufacturing. What assumptions must be made about the two populations?

b. What is the pooled estimate of the population variance?

c. Develop a 95% confidence interval for the difference between the two population means.
