Mendenhall, W. M., Sincich, T. L., & Boudreau, N. S. (2016).c.Since confidence interval contains the value 0.50, I can say that 50% of 17-year-oldsin NSW are female.Question 2a.> hist(survey$MVPA, col="green")

(2016).b.Null hypothesis, ho: there is no significant difference in the average self-reportedhours of MVPA per week is equal between males and females.Alternative hypothesis, h1: there is a significant difference in the average self-reported hours of MVPA per week is equal between males and females.> wilcox.test(survey$MVPA~survey$sex)Wilcoxon rank sum test with continuity correctiondata: survey$MVPA by survey$sexW = 8539.5, p-value = 0.404alternative hypothesis: true location shift is not equal to 0with w=8539.5, p>5%, I fail to reject null hypothesis and conclude that there is nosignificant difference in the average self-reported hours of MVPA per week is equalbetween males and females.Tartakovsky, A., Nikiforov, I., & Basseville, M.
