Need help with my Mathematics question – I’m studying for my class.

**Module 22 – Hypothesis Test for a Population Mean (17 of 19 discussion 3)**

### Prompt

- In a previous lab we tested the following hypotheses,

$H$

:

0

=

and

4.73

:

a

<

(where

4.73

is the mean number of alcoholic drinks consumed by students at a liberal arts college).

In a random sample of 75 students, the mean was 3.93 alcoholic drinks consumed in a week. Here is the StatCrunch output from the hypothesis test.

**$\mu $**

**:**Mean of variable**${}_{}$**

H

$\mu $ :

0

=

4.73

:

A

≠

4.73

**Hypothesis test results**

Variable Sample Mean Std. Err. DF T-Stat P-value number of drinks per week 3.9333333 0.43592434 74 -1.8275343 0.0717 Using this context and the StatCrunch output, explain the meaning of each of the following.

- Std. Err (standard error)
- T-stat (T-score)
- P-value

- In a previous matched pairs lab we tested the following hypotheses, where

$\mu $

is the mean of the differences in corn yield for a plot of land (

*regular seed minus kiln-dried*): H0: µ = 0 and Ha: µ < 0. In a random sample of 11 seeds of each type, the mean of the differences in the sample was -33.7. Here is a StatCrunch print-out of the hypothesis test.

*Differences*.Using this context and the StatCrunch output, explain the meaning of each of the following.

- Std. Err (standard error)
- T-stat (T-score)
- P-value.
