The student will select the appropriate distributions to use in each case.
The student will conduct hypothesis tests and interpret the results.
Television survey
In a recent survey, it was stated that Americans watch television on average four hours per day. Assume that
$\sigma =2$ . Using your class as the sample, conduct a hypothesis test to determine if the average for students at your school is lower.
${H}_{o}$ :
${H}_{a}$ :
In words, define the random variable. __________ =
The distribution to use for the test is:
Determine the test statistic using your data.
Draw a graph and label it appropriately.Shade the actual level of significance.
Graph:
Determine the p-value:
Do you or do you not reject the null hypothesis? Why?
Write a clear conclusion using a complete sentence.
Language survey
About 42.3% of Californians and 19.6% of all Americans over age 5 speak a language other than English at home. Using your class as the sample, conduct a hypothesis test to determine if the percent of the students at your school that speak a language other than English at home is different from 42.3%.

Questions & Answers
what is a good calculator for all algebra; would a Casio fx 260 work with all algebra equations? please name the cheapest, thanks.
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
