Question

A computer manufacturer is testing a batch of processors. They place a simple random sample of processors from the batch under a stress test and record the number of failures, their guidelines specify the percentage of failures should be under 4%. Of the 300 processors tested, there were 54 failures.

(a) State the hypotheses for the test. Assume the manufacturer wants to assume there is a problem with a batch, that is, they will only accept that there are fewer than 4% failures in the population if they have evidence for it. (2 points)

(b) Calculate the test statistic and p-value. Your test statistic should be either a z-value or a t-value, whichever is appropriate for the problem. (6 points)

(c) Reach your conclusion for the test at the 0.05 significance level. (2 points)

(d) One of the engineers wants to change the test to be at the 0.01 significance level. What would be the effect of doing so? (Answer this question generally, not just in the context of this particular problem.) (3 points)

Answer #1

a. Here claim is that there are fewer than 4% failures in the population if they have evidence for it.

As null hypothesis always have equality sign so hypothesis is

vs

b.

Test statistics is

So P value is

c. As P value is greater than alpha=0.05, we fail to reject the null hypothesis

d. As P value is greater than alpha=0.01, so decision will remain the same we will fail to reject the null hypothesis

Hence we do not have sufficient evidence to support the claim that p<0.04

An automobile manufacturer has given its car a 53.7 miles/gallon
(MPG) rating. An independent testing firm has been contracted to
test the actual MPG for this car since it is believed that the car
performs under the manufacturer's MPG rating. After testing 200
cars, they found a mean MPG of 53.4. Assume the population variance
is known to be 2.25. Is there sufficient evidence at the 0.02 level
to support the testing firm's claim?
State the null and alternative hypotheses....

Assume that a simple random sample has been selected from a
normally distributed population and test the given claim. Use
either the traditional method or P-value method as indicated.
Identify the null and alternative hypotheses, test statistic,
critical value(s) or P-value (or range of P-values) as appropriate,
and state the final conclusion that addresses the original claim.

time between failures is 520 hours. A modification is made...

An automobile manufacturer has given its jeep a 52.8
miles/gallon (MPG) rating. An independent testing firm has been
contracted to test the actual MPG for this jeep since it is
believed that the jeep has an incorrect manufacturer's MPG rating.
After testing 230 jeeps, they found a mean MPG of 52.7. Assume the
population standard deviation is known to be 1.0. Is there
sufficient evidence at the 0.1 level to support the testing firm's
claim?

An automobile manufacturer has given its van a 30.7miles/gallon
(MPG) rating. An independent testing firm has been contracted to
test the actual MPG for this van since it is believed that the van
performs over the manufacturer's MPG rating. After testing 110
vans, they found a mean MPG of 30.9. Assume the population variance
is known to be 3.61. Is there sufficient evidence at the 0.05 level
to support the testing firm's claim?
State the null and alternative hypotheses. (...
