### 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

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

### Question 7

### Question 8

1.      Many hotel chains that offer free Wi-Fi service to their customers have experienced increasing demand for Internet bandwidth and increasing costs.

A random sample of 130 Marriott customers found that 63 have two Wi-Fi devices. Marriott International would like to set α = 0.05. The conclusion for this hypothesis test would be that because the test statistic is

 [removed] less than the critical value, we can conclude that the proportion of Marriott customers that carry two Wi-Fi devices is less than 0.40. [removed] more than the critical value, we can conclude that the proportion of Marriott customers that carry two Wi-Fi devices is less than 0.40. [removed] more than the critical value, we can conclude that the proportion of Marriott customers that carry two Wi-Fi devices is greater than 0.40.
