Question

You are advised to perform the appropriate hypothesis test using pencil and paper, along with a calculator and statistical tables, and then use your working to answer the questions below.

In past years, the average price per square metre for warehouses in Malaysia has been RM123.50. (RM stands for Malaysian Ringgit). An investor wants to determine whether that figure has changed now. The investor hires a researcher who randomly samples 19 warehouses that are for sale across Malaysia and finds that the mean price per square metre is RM121.17. Assuming that the prices are normally distributed and that the standard deviation is RM5.50, use this sample data to determine whether there is sufficient evidence at the 1% level of significance to assert that the price per square metre has changed.

(a) According to the null hypothesis, the value of the population mean is RM Answer grams. (Answer in the form xxx.xx)

(b) Is the test one-tailed or two-tailed? Answer: Answer (answer 1 or 2)

(c) To 3 decimal places the upper tail critical value of the standardized test statistic for this hypothesis test is: Answer (Answer in the form x.xxx)

(d) To 3 decimal places the test statistic calculated from the sample is: Answer (Answer in the form x.xxx or -x.xxx)

(e) Is the null hypothesis rejected at the 1% level? Answer: Answer (Answer YES or NO)

(f) Does this mean that warehouse prices have changed? Answer: Answer (Answer YES or NO)

(g) Is it necessary to assume the prices per square metre are normally distributed in order to perform this test? Answer (Answer YES or NO)

**I have answered the question below**

**Please up vote for the same and thanks!!!**

**Do reach out in the comments for any
queries**

**Answer:**

a) 123.50 (From the given data the average price per square metre for warehouses in Malaysia has been RM123.50 and they want totest his claim)

b) 2 ( Equality so Two -tailed)

c)2.878 ( From t -table at 1% and 18 df)

d)1.8466 ( t = 123.5-121.17/5.5/sqrt(19))

e)No ( Since it is lesser than critical value(

f)No ( Since the null cannot be rejeccted we cannot conclude warehouse prices have changed)

g)Yes ( Since number of samples les than 30 and CLT is not satsified)

You will perform a Chi-Square test and an
ANOVA test. For each hypothesis test make sure to
report the following steps:
Identify the null hypothesis, Ho, and the alternative
hypothesis, Ha.
Determine whether the hypothesis test is left-tailed,
right-tailed, or two-tailed.
Find the critical value(s) and identify the rejection
region(s).
Find the appropriate standardized test statistic. If convenient,
use technology.
Decide whether to reject or fail to reject the null
hypothesis.
Interpret the decision in the context of the original...

Suppose that in past years the average price per square foot for
warehouses in the United States has been $32.26. A national real
estate investor wants to determine whether that figure has changed
now. The investor hires a researcher who randomly samples 49
warehouses that are for sale across the United States and finds
that the mean price per square foot is $31.66, with a standard
deviation of $1.27. Assume that prices of warehouse footage are
normally distributed in population....

Suppose that in past years the average price per square foot for
warehouses in the United States has been $31.28. A national real
estate investor wants to determine whether that figure has changed
now. The investor hires a researcher who randomly samples 48
warehouses that are for sale across the United States and finds
that the mean price per square foot is $30.66, with a standard
deviation of $1.23. Assume that prices of warehouse footage are
normally distributed in population....

a. State the Null and Alternative
Hypotheses in words.
b. Perform the appropriate hypothesis
test using an Alpha of .05. Be sure to write what critical value
you are using in your work.
c. State your results first by saying
whether you reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis. Then
state the conclusion in your own words.
d. type in your hypotheses, the df
value you use, and the critical value. Also include your conclusion
and When you calculate...

If you are using the t distribution to perform a one-sided
hypothesis test for the mean of a normal distribution based on a
sample of 10 observations, and the test statistic is 2.26, then the
p-value of this test is …. .
0.024
0.025
0.05
0.012

1.) One tailed test or two tailed test?
You are performing a hypothesis test for the mean sample weight
of your fellow Intro to Statistics students. For your null
hypothesis , the hypothesized mean weight for the entire campus
student body is 165. You have no reason to know for your
alternative hypothesis whether the actual mean weight for the
entire student campus body is more or less than 165. So you decide
to make your alternative hypothesis as not...

In a school district, all sixth grade students take the same
standardized test. The superintendant of the school district takes
a random sample of 26 scores from all of the students who took the
test. She sees that the mean score is 121 with a standard deviation
of 14.3688. The superintendant wants to know if the standard
deviation has changed this year. Previously, the population
standard deviation was 24. Is there evidence that the standard
deviation of test scores has...

You may need to use the appropriate appendix table or technology
to answer this question.
According to the Vivino website, suppose the mean price for a
bottle of red wine that scores 4.0 or higher on the Vivino Rating
System is $32.48. A New England-based lifestyle magazine wants to
determine if red wines of the same quality are less expensive in
Providence, and it has collected prices for 61 randomly selected
red wines of similar quality from wine stores throughout...

A personal computer manufacturer is interested in comparing
assembly times for two keyboard assembly processes. Assembly times
can vary considerably from worker to worker, and the company
decides to eliminate this effect by selecting a random sample of 10
workers and timing each worker on each assembly process. Half of
the workers are chosen at random to use Process 1 first, and the
rest use Process 2 first. For each worker and each process, the
assembly time (in minutes) is...

The owner of a chain of mini-markets wants to compare the sales
performance of two of her stores, Store 1 and Store 2. Though the
two stores have been comparable in the past, the owner has made
several improvements to Store 1 and wishes to see if the
improvements have made Store 1 more popular than Store 2. Sales can
vary considerably depending on the day of the week and the season
of the year, so she decides to eliminate...
