Question 3 
Two real estate companies, Century 21 and RE/MAX, compete with one another in a local market. The manager of the Century 21 office would like to advertise that homes listed with RE/MAX average more than 10 days on the market when compared to homes listed with his company. The following data shows the sample size and average number of days on the market for the two companies along with the population standard deviations.
Century 21 
RE/MAX 

Sample mean 
122 days 
144 days 
Sample size 
36 
30 
Population standard deviation 
32 days 
35 days 
If Population 1 is defined as RE/MAX and Population 2 is defined as Century 21, and using α = 0.10, the critical value for this hypothesis test would be ________.

Question 9 
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) would like to test the hypothesis that the proportion of obese adults in the U.S. has increased this year when compared to last year. A random sample of 120 adults this year found that 45 were obese. Last year, a random sample of 150 adults found that 48 were obese. If Population 1 is defined as this year and Population 2 is defined as last year, the correct hypothesis statement for this hypothesis test would be





Question 10 
AT&T would like to test the hypothesis that the proportion of 18 to 34yearold Americans that own a smartphone is less than the proportion of 35 to 49yearold Americans. A random sample of 200 18 to 34yearold Americans found that 126 owned a smartphone. A random sample of 175 35 to 49yearold Americans found that 119 owned a smartphone. If Population 1 is defined as 18 to 34yearold Americans and Population 2 is defined as 35 to 49yearold Americans, the 98% confidence interval for the difference in population proportions is ________.
