Consider the following hypothesis test.

H_{a}: μ ≠ 15 |

A sample of 50 provided a sample mean of 14.11. The population standard deviation is 3.

(a)

Find the value of the test statistic. (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

(b)

Find the *p*-value. (Round your answer to four decimal
places.)

*p*-value =

(c)

At

*α* = 0.05,

state your conclusion.

Reject *H*_{0}. There is sufficient evidence to
conclude that *μ* ≠ 15.Reject *H*_{0}. There
is insufficient evidence to conclude that *μ* ≠
15. Do not reject
*H*_{0}. There is sufficient evidence to conclude
that *μ* ≠ 15.Do not reject *H*_{0}. There is
insufficient evidence to conclude that *μ* ≠ 15.

(d)

State the critical values for the rejection rule. (Round your answers to two decimal places. If the test is one-tailed, enter NONE for the unused tail.)

test statistic≤test statistic≥

State your conclusion.

Reject *H*_{0}. There is sufficient evidence to
conclude that *μ* ≠ 15.

Reject *H*_{0}. There is insufficient evidence to
conclude that *μ* ≠ 15.

Do not reject *H*_{0}. There is sufficient
evidence to conclude that *μ* ≠ 15.

Do not reject *H*_{0}. There is insufficient
evidence to conclude that *μ* ≠ 15.

Answer #1

The population standard deviation is 3 is known therefore we use z-test

Suppose the mean price for used cars is $10,191. A manager of a
Kansas City used car dealership reviewed a sample of 50 recent used
car sales at the dealership in an attempt to determine whether the
population mean price for used cars at this particular dealership
differed from the national mean. The prices for the sample of 50
cars are shown in the file named...

You may need to use the appropriate appendix table or technology
to answer this question. In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control
reported the percentage of people 18 years of age and older who
smoke. Suppose that a study designed to collect new data on smokers
and nonsmokers uses a preliminary estimate of the proportion who

the proportion of smokers in the population with a margin of...

The Student's t distribution table gives critical
values for the Student's t distribution. Use an
appropriate d.f. as the row header. For a
right-tailed test, the column header is the value of
α found in the one-tail area row. For a
left-tailed test, the column header is the value of
α found in the one-tail area row, but you must
change the sign of the critical value t to −t.
For a two-tailed test, the column header is the value...
