3. 3. D. Two dependent samples are compared.8) A survey of hotels found that the average hotel room rate in New Orleans is \$88.42 and theaverage room rate in Phoenix is \$80.61. The survey sampled 50 hotels in each city. The standarddeviations were \$5.62 and \$4.83, respectively. At alpha=.05, it can be concluded that there is asignificant different in the rates?A. 7.45B. -1.96C. 1.96D. -7.459) If the paired differences are normal in a test of mean differences, the distribution used fortesting is theA. normal distributionB. chi-squareC. student distributionD. F distribution10) The accountant for Thomas’s Furniture Store is concerned regarding the outstandingreceivable owed the company. There has been a cash flow problem and it is believed that theslow collection of accounts receivable is partially the blame. The accountant believes that 40%of the present accounts are more than 4 months behind in making payments.

Did the sample data confirm the accountant’s belief?Use the .05 significant level for the statistical test.A. There is not enough evidence to confirm or deny the belief.B. The accountants belief is not confirmed. Click here for the solution
