1. ll be profitable if the average wind speed at the proposed turbine site is more than 8 mph. For a site north of West Lafayette, the wind speed was monitored every 8 hours for a one year period. A total of 1095 readings had an average speed of 8.319 mph with a standard deviation of 3.909. An appropriate 1-sided hypothesis test was conducted to test whether the average wind speed at the site is more than 8 mph. Which of the below would be a Type I error for this test?

claim : to test whether the average wind speed at the site is more than 8 mph.

we have : n =1095

mu= population mean = 8

x bar = sample mean = 8.319

s = standard deviation = 3.909

To test : Ho : mu =8 vs H1 : mu > 8 ( it is right tail test )

Test statistics : Z because sample size is large

Z = (x bar - mu ) SQRT(n) / s

Z = 10.555 / 3.909 = 2.700

here we do not have alpha value assume alpha value is 95 %

Z critical value is 1.64 from table

## Decision : we reject Ho if Z statistics value is greater than Z critical value

here Z   statistics value is greater than Z critical value .

## Conclusion : our claim is satisfy for alpha value is 95 %

here population mean is greater than 8 here type 1 error is satisfy
