1. Create a simple distribution graph (histogram) where we will explore the age of women after giving birth to their first child.

Remember that a histogram consists of parallel vertical bars that show the frequency distribution of a quantitative variable in the graph. See the example in Introductory Statistics with R on pages 71-7 or pages 123-124 in EXCEL statistics: A quick guide. The area of each bar is equal to the frequency of items found in each class.

1. Determine the mean age of the women in the Gestation Demographics SEU dataset. 3. We will be testing the hypothesis that assumes the mean age (μ = μ0) for women is 37 years in the Gestation Demographics SEU dataset.

H0 The mean age of women giving birth is 37 years old. (Null Hypothesis)

H1 The mean age of women giving birth is not 37 years old. (Alternative Hypothesis) Present your findings in a Word document by copying and pasting the histogram into the document.

After your analysis, state whether you accept or reject the null hypothesis and your reasoning why.
