Question

The sales representative for a manufacturer of a new product claims that the product will increase output per machine by more than 29 units per hour. A line manager installs the product on 20 of the machines, and finds that the average increase was 31 with a standard deviation of 6.2. Using ? = .05, is there evidence that the population mean increase in output is greater than 29 units per hour? Do a complete and appropriate hypothesis test.

of 16 randomly chosen hours with a mean of 510 and a standard
deviation of 50 indicate that the manufacturer’s claim is
overstated? Choose the appropriate hypothesis.(Multiple
Choice)
a. H1: μ < 530. Reject H1 if tcalc > –1.753
b. H0: μ < 530. Reject H0 if tcalc >...

like to study the modified line’s effects on output. The following
data represent the average hourly production output of 6 randomly
sampled employees before and after the line was modified:
