Question

The accompanying data table lists measured voltage amounts supplied directly to a family's home. The power supply company states that it has a target power supply of 120 volts. Using those home voltage amounts, test the claim that the mean is 120 volts. Use a 0.01 significance level.

Answer #1

To test against

Here

sample mean

sample standard deviation

and sample size

The test statistic can be written as

which under H_{0} follows a t distribution with n-1 df.

We reject H_{0} at 1% significance level if p-value <
0.01

Now,

The value of the test statistic

and p-value

Since p-value < 0.01, so we reject H_{0} at 1%
significance level and we can conclude that the mean is
significantly different from 120 volts
