A candidate for mayor wants to gauge potential voter reaction to an increase recreational services by estimating the proportion of voter who now use city services. If we assume that 50% of the voters require city recreational services, what is the probability that 40% or fewer voters in a sample of 100 actually will use these city services?

A set of 19 scores has a mean of 6.3. A new score of 8 is then included in the data set. What is the new mean?
We know the mean formula is:
Sum of scores / Number of Scores = Mean
We're given mean = 6.3 and number of scores = 19, so we have:
Sum of scores / 19 = 6.3
Cross multiply:
Sum of scores = 19 * 6.3
Sum of scores = 119.7
Now a new score is added of 8, so we have:
Sum of scores = 119.7 + 8 = 127.7
Number of scores = 19 + 1 = 20
So our new mean is:
Mean = Sum of scores / Number of Scores
Mean = 127.7/20
Mean = [B]6.385[/B]

Five years ago, the average math SAT score for students at one school was 475. A teacher wants to perform a hypothesis test to determine whether the mean math SAT score of students at the school has changed. The mean math SAT score for a random sample of 40 students from this school is 469. Do the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean math SAT score for students at the school has changed from the previous mean of 475? Perform the appropriate hypothesis test using a significance level of 10%. Assume that Η = 73.
