Select all that apply:

  •  

    We should reject H0.

     

    We should not reject H0.

  •  

    At the 1% significance level, the data do not provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the amount of time American teenagers watch television per week is different from 14.1 hours.

  •  

    At the 1% significance level, the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the amount of time American teenagers watch television per week is different from 14.1 hours.

Step 1

Test hypothesis:

Denote the population mean amount of time American teenagers watch television per week as μ.

The hypotheses are given below:

Null hypothesis:

H0 : μ = 14.1 hours

That is, the mean amount of time American teenagers watch television per week is equal to 14.1 hours.

Alternative hypothesis:

Ha : μ ≠ 14.1 hours (Two tail test).

That is, the mean amount of time American teenagers watch television per week is not equal to 14.1 hours.

Step 2

Given information:

The level of significance is 1%.

The test statistic value of the hypothesis test is t0 = –1.77.

The critical value for the hypothesis test is t(α/2) = ± 3.169.

Step 3

Decision rule:

Denote t0 as test statistic value and t(α/2) as the critical value.

Decision rule based on critical approach:

If t0 ≤ –t(α/2) (or) t0 ≥ t(α/2), then reject the null hypothesis H0.

If –t(α/2) < t0...
