An article states that movie attendance declined in 2005. A survey found that 740 of 1000 randomly selected adult Americans preferred to watch movies at home rather than at a movie theater. Is there convincing evidence that the majority of adult Americans prefer to watch movies at home? Test the relevant hypotheses using a 0.05 significance level. (Round your test statistic to two decimal places and your P-value to four decimal places.)z=P=According to a survey of 1000 adult Americans, 220 of those surveyed said playing the lottery would be the most practical way for them to accumulate $200,000 in net wealth in their lifetime. Although the article does not describe how the sample was selected, for purposes of this exercise, assume that the sample can be regarded as a random sample of adult Americans. Is there convincing evidence that more than 20% of adult Americans believe that playing the lottery is the best strategy for accumulating $200,000 in net wealth? Use ? = 0.05. (Round your test statistic to two decimal places and your P-value to four decimal places.)z=P=
An assessor assessing arbitrarily chose research center reports for as far back as year saw a noteworthy lessening in the quantity of base/nonpartisan and corrosive extractable examples requiring re-extraction on account of low surrogate recuperations. No purpose behind the change was promptly obvious, and the assessor called attention to the perception amid the way out brief.The QA Manager directed a twilight check of the GC/MS research center, and found a little, unmarked vial containing a glass pole, almost one of the instruments. Investigation of the substance uncovered the vial contained a low-level surrogate arrangement. Under reconnaissance the following day, the investigator was watched once in a while plunging the glass bar into the vial, and after that into chose tests. In this way, she was bringing surrogate recuperations up in those specimens for which starting results were too low. What other information evaluation warnings may have been watched? What Quality System vulnerabilities may exist?
An automobile manufacturer observes the demand for its brand increasing as per capita income increases. Sales increases also follow low interest rate, which ease credit conditions. Buyer purchase behavior is seen to be dependent on age and gender. Other factors influencing sales appear to fluctuate almost randomly (competitor advertising, competitor dealer discounts, introductions of new competitive models).a. if sales and per capita income are positively related, classify all variables as dependent, independent, moderating, extraneous, or intervening.b Comment on the utility of a model based on the hypothesis.For all forums, the student will create a thread that must be 500â750 words, incorporate at least 2 peer-reviewed sources and 1 biblical integration, and demonstrate course-related knowledge.
An employee working in customer service at a large company arrives at her desk and finds a package from a customer she recently spoke with. Inside is a gift card for $50 to an expensive restaurant to thank her for her assistance, which ultimately saved the customer money. She remembers that the company has a code of conduct policy against accepting gifts from customers, but she thinks that it may only pertain to gifts of a larger amount. Unsure what to do, she reaches out to a leader in the department for insight.In your discussion post complete the following:Choose a stage from the Kohlberg Model and construct an email response from the business leader in response to this dilemma. Make sure the response reflects the characteristics of the chosen stage from the Kohlberg model.After composing the email, predict how that leaderâs approach to business ethics might impact the organizational culture.Describe how the leaderâs decision and advice to you regarding this issue might change over time.Guided response:Review several of your classmatesâ postings. Respond to at least two classmates by commenting on the email they constructed from the business leader in regard to this scenario. Share which characteristics of the selected stage in the Kohlberg model are evident in the email. Expand on how an email of this nature impacts organizational culture.
An express mail service charges a special rate for any package that weighs less than 1 lb. Let x denote the weight of a randomly selected parcel that qualifies for this special rate. The probability distribution of x is specified by the density curve shown below. Use the fact that area of a trapezoid = (base)(average of two side lengths)to answer each of the following questions:(a) What is the probability that a randomly selected package of this type weighs at most 0.4lb? between 0.35 and 0.5 lb? at least 0.85lb?P(x?0.4) =P(0.35?x?0.5) =P(x?0.85) =(b) It can be shown that?x= 7/12 and?2x= 11/144. What is the probability that the value ofxis more than 1 standard deviation from the mean value? (Round the answer to four decimal places.)P(xis more than one standard deviation from the mean value) =
