**a.**

**b.** The same sample of senior citizens reports that they belong to an average of 2.1 voluntary organizations and clubs, with a standard deviation of 0.5. Statewide, the average is 1.7. Is the difference significant?

Expert Solution

To determine

a)

**To find:**

The significant difference between the given statements.

**Given:**

The given information is,

Statewide, the population as a whole watches 6.2 hours of TV per day. A random sample of 1017 senior citizens in the state reports watching an average of 5.9 hours per day, with a standard deviation of 0.7.

**The five step model for hypothesis testing is:**

Step 1. Making assumptions and meeting test requirements.

Step 2. Stating the null hypothesis.

Step 3. Selecting the sampling distribution and establishing the critical region.

Step 4. Computing test statistics.

Step 5. Making a decision and interpreting the results of the test.

**Formula used:**

For large samples with single mean and given standard deviation, the *Z* value is given by,

Where,

*N* is the sample size.

**Calculation:**

From the given information, the sample size is 1017, sample mean is

Follow the steps for two-tailed hypothesis testing as,

Step 1. Making assumptions and meeting test requirements.

Model:

Random sampling.

Level of measurement is interval ratio.

Sampling distribution is Normal.

Step 2. Stating the null hypothesis.

The statement of the null hypothesis is that there is no significant difference in the average hours of watching TV per day between senior citizens and state average.

Thus, the null and the alternative hypotheses are,

Step 3. Selecting the sampling distribution and establishing the critical region.

Since, the sample is large, a normal curve can be used.

Thus, the sampling distribution is *Z* distribution.

The level of significance is

And area of critical region is

Expert Solution

To determine

b)

**To find:**

The significant difference between the given statements.
