Question

Test H0: μ ≤ 8 versus HA: μ > 8, given α = 0.01, n = 25, X = 8.13 and s = 0.3. Assume the sample is selected from a normally distributed population.

Answer #1

Solution :

This is the right tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H_{0} :
= 8

H_{a} :
> 8

Test statistic = t

= ( - ) / s / n

= (8.13 - 8) / 0.3 / 25

= 2.17

P(z > 2.17) = 1 - P(z < 2.17) = 0.015

P-value = 0.015

= 0.01

P-value >

Fail to reject the null hypothesis .

Please type work and answer.
Test H0: m £ 8 versus HA:
m > 8, at a = 0.05 and 0.01, given n = 25,
X = 8.07 and s = 0.16. Assume the sample
is selected from a normally distributed population.

We wish to test H0: μ = 120 versus Ha:
μ ¹ 120, where ? is known to equal 14. The sample of n = 36
measurements randomly selected from the population has a mean of ?̅
= 15.
a. Calculate the value of the test
statistic z.
b. By comparing z with a critical
value, test H0 versus Ha at ? = .05.

It is desired to test H0: μ = 50 against HA: μ ≠ 50 using α =
0.10. The population in question is uniformly distributed with a
standard deviation of 15. A random sample of 49 will be drawn from
this population. If μ is really equal to 45, what is the power of
the test ?

The following information is given for a one-sample t test: H0:
μ = 100; HA: μ < 100 Sample statistics: x̅= 95; s = 12.42 Value
of the test statistic: t = –1.80 (a) Determine the sample size, n.
(b) At a significance level α = 0.05, would your decision be to
reject H0 or fail to reject H0?

7. Test H0: π = 0.25 versus HA: π ¹0.25
with p = 0.33 and n = 100 at alpha = 0.05 and 0.10.
8. Test at α = 0.01 the hypothesis that a majority (more than
50%) of students favor the plus/minus grading system at a
university if in a random sample of 500 students, 285 favor the
system?
9. Test whether the sample evidence indicates that the average

Use a t-test to test the claim about the population mean μ at
the given level of significance α using the given sample
statistics. Assume the population is normally distributed.
Claim: μ ≠ 24; α=0.10 Sample statistics: x overbar =
21.4, s = 4.2 , n equals = 11
What are the null and alternative hypotheses? Choose the
correct answer below.
A.H0: μ≠24
Ha: μ=24
B.H0: μ≤24
Ha: μ>24
C.H0: μ=24
Ha: μ≠24
D.H0: μ≥24
Ha: μ than<24...

In a test of the hypothesis Ho: μ = 50
versus Ha: μ ≠ 50,
with a sample of n = 100 has a Sample Mean = 49.4 and Sample
Standard Deviation, S = 4.1.
(a) Find the p-value for the test. (b)
Interpret the
p-value for the test, using
an α =
0.10.

Use a t-test to test the claim about the population mean μ at
the given level of significance α using the given sample
statistics. Assume the population is normally distributed.
Claim: μ=51,300; α=0.10 Sample statistics:
x overbar =52,024
s=2,100
n=19

Test the claim about the population mean μ at the level of
significance α. Assume the population is normally distributed.
Write out null and alternative hypotheses, your critical t-score
and your t-test statistic. Decide whether you would reject or fail
to reject your null hypothesis.
Claim μ ≥ 13.9
α = 0.05
Sample statistics: x̅ = 13, s = 1.3, n = 10

t-test statistic:
Decision:

To test H0: μ=100 versus H1: μ≠100, a simple random sample size
of n=24 is obtained from a population that is known to be normally
distributed.
A. If x=105.8 and s=9.3 compute the test statistic.
B. If the researcher decides to test this hypothesis at the
a=0.01 level of significance, determine the critical values.
C. Draw a t-distribution that depicts the critical regions.
D. Will the researcher reject the null hypothesis?
a. The researcher will reject the null hypothesis since...
