Abstract

The problem can people ages 60 and older hear the frequencies of smoke detectors. The hypothesis of "if played a tone tone at the frequency of 3100 Hertz, then 75% of senior participants will not be able to hear the tone" was not supported. Sixty percent of the 20 participants could hear the frequency of 3100 Hertz.
