Question

A random sample of 500 of a certain brand of cola was taken to
see whether the mean weight was 16 fluid ounces as indicated on the
container. For the 500 sampled, the mean was found to be 15.9988
with a standard deviation of 0.0985. Does this brand of cola have a
population mean of 16 fluid ounces?

What is the p-value for this hypothesis test?

What is the test statistic for this hypothesis test?

What is the critical value of this hypothesis test?

What is the decision of the test?

Options:

A. |
Reject Ho because the test statistic is in the rejection region and the p-value is less than alpha. |

B. |
2.21 |

C. |
-0.2724 |

D. |
2.575 |

E. |
1.08 |

F. |
1.96 |

G. |
0.1393 |

H. |
(1.6223, 1.6331) |

I. |
1.645 |

J. |
-0.5364 |

K. |
(1.6116, 1.6166) |

L. |
0.2146 |

M. |
Fail to reject H |

N. |
1.96 |

O. |
0.7854 |

P. |
Reject Ho because the test statistic is not in the rejection region and the p-value is less than alpha. |

Q. |
Fail to reject Ho because the test statistic is not in the rejection region and the p-value is less than alpha. |

R. |
(1.6113, 1.6168) |

Answer #1

test stat t
='(x-μ)*√n/sx= |
-0.2724 |

p
value =tdist(0.2724,499,2)
= |
0.7854 |

1) p-value for this hypothesis test =0.7854

2)test statistic for this hypothesis test =0.2724

3)critical value of this hypothesis test : (level of significance not given ; if it is 0.05 then critical value =1.96 , if 0.10 then critical value =1.645)

4) decision of the test

M. |
Fail to reject Ho because the test statistic is not in the critical region and the p-value is greater than alpha. |

Multiple Choice:
How often do you go out dancing? This question was asked
by a professional survey group on behalf of the National Arts
Survey. A random sample of 95 single men showed that 24% went out
dancing occasionally. Another random sample of 92 single women
showed that 21% went out dancing occasionally. Is the proportion of
single men who go out dancing occasionally higher than the
proportion of single women? Use a 5% level of
significance.
If men are...

(CO 5) A light bulb manufacturer guarantees that the mean life
of a certain type of light bulb is at least 720 hours. A random
sample of 51 light bulbs as a mean of 712.8 hours with a population
standard deviation of 62 hours. At an α=0.05, can you support the
company’s claim using the test statistic?
Claim is the null, reject the null and cannot support claim as
test statistic (-0.83) is in the rejection region defined by the...

20. Large Sample Proportion Problem. Surveys
were conducted in multiple countries and respondents were asked if
they felt political news was reported fairly. The data for the
United States is that out of 1,000 sampled, 470 indicated yes, they
felt political news was reported fairly. Suppose we want to
determine if the proportion for the U.S. is below .50 for
an alpha level of .05.
What is the conclusion of my test?
A. I would reject Ho: P=.5 because the...

Test Ho: µ =100; H1: µ < 100, using n = 36 and alpha = .05 If
the sample mean=106 and the sample standard
deviation = 15, which of the following is true?
A. test statistic = 2.4; the critical value = -1.69; we fail to
reject Ho.
B. test statistic = 1.96; the critical value = -1.69; we fail to
reject Ho.
C. test statistic = 2.40; the critical value = -1.69; we reject
Ho.
D. test statistic =...

In a survey of
one hundred and eight five
females who recently completed high school,
eighty percent
were enrolled in college. In a survey of
one hundred and fifty
males who recently completed high school,
sixty eight percent
were enrolled in college. At
α=0.07,
can you reject the claim that there is no difference in the
proportion of college enrollees between the two groups? Assume the
random samples are independent. Complete parts (a) through

A county clerk wants to improve voter registration. He wants to
send out reminders in the mail to all citizens in the county who
are eligible to vote. To determine if it will actually improve
voter registration, a random sample of 1250 potential voters was

to another group of 625 voters and of those 348...

A consumer research organization states that the mean caffeine
content per 12-ounce bottle of a population of caffeinated soft
drinks is 37.8 milligrams. You find a random sample of 48 12-ounce
bottles of caffeinated soft drinks that has a mean caffeine content
of 41.5 milligrams. Assume the population standard deviation is
12.5 milligrams. At α=0.05, what type of test is this and can you
reject the organization’s claim using the test statistic?
Claim is null, fail to reject the null...

A computer manufacturer estimates that its cheapest screens will
last less than 2.8 years. A random sample of 61 of these screens
has a mean life of 2.7 years. The population is normally
distributed with a population standard deviation of 0.88 years. At
α=0.02, what type of test is this and can you support the
organization’s claim using the test statistic?
Claim is alternative, reject the null and support claim as test
