Whooping Crane Eggs Once down to about 15, the world’s only wild flock of whooping cranes now numbers a record 237 birds in its Texas Coastal Bend wintering ground (www.SunHerald.com). The average whooping crane egg weighs 208 grams. A new batch of eggs was recently weighed, and their weights are listed below. At ? =0.01, is there sufficient evidence to conclude that the weight is greater than 208 grams? 210 208.5 211.6 212 210.3 210.2 209 206.4 209.7 Union Membership Nationwide 13.7% of employed wage and salary workers are union members (down from 20.1% in 1983). A random sample of 300 local wage and salary workers showed that 50 belonged to a union. At ? = 0.05, is there sufficient evidence to conclude that the proportion of union membership differs from 13.7%? Times of Videos A film editor feels that the standard deviation for the number of minutes in a video is 3.4 minutes. A sample of 24 videos has a standard deviation of 4.2 minutes. At ? = 0.05, is the sample standard deviation different from what the editor hypothesized? For this next exercise, perform these steps. Assume that all variables are normally or approximately normally distributed. a. State the hypotheses and identify the claim. b. Find the critical value(s). c. Compute the test value. d. Make the decision. e. Summarize the results. Use the traditional method of hypothesis testing unless otherwise specified. Driving for Pleasure - Two groups of drivers are surveyed to see how many miles per week they drive for pleasure trips. The data are shown. At ? = 0.01, can it be concluded that single drivers do more driving for pleasure trips on average than married drivers? Assume ?1 = 16.7 and ?2 = 16.1.

Based on the following information, is there sufficient evidence to conclude that single persons spend, on average, a greater time each day communicating? Use the 0.05 level of significance. Single married Sample size 26 20 Sample mean 16.7 minutes 12.5 minutes Sample variance 8.41 10.24
