Question

A filling machine, when in proper adjustment, fills the bottles with 32 ounces of liquid. A random sample of 19 bottles is selected, and the contents are measured. The sample mean was 31.7 ounces, with a sample standard deviation of 0.55 ounces. With a 0.05 level of significance, test to see if the machine is in proper adjustment. Assume the distribution of the population is normal.

Answer #1

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

The test is two-tailed test.

Since , the population standard deviation is not known.

Therefore , use t-test.

The test statistic is ,

Now , df=degrees of freedom=n-1=19-1=18

The critical values are ,

Rejection Rule : Reject Ho , If t-stat<-2.101 or t-stat>2.101

Decision : Here , t-stat=-2.38<-2.101

Therefore , reject Ho.

Conclusion : There is not sufficient evidence to conclude that the machine is in proper adjustment..

A soft drink filling machine, when in perfect adjustment, fills
bottles with 12 ounces of soft drink. A random sample of 25 bottles
is selected, and the contents are measured. The sample yielded a
mean content of 11.88 ounces, with a sample standard deviation of
0.16 ounce.
Set up the hypotheses, and with a .05 level of significance,
test to see if the machine is in perfect adjustment. Show your
work.

A soft drink filling machine, when in perfect adjustment, fills
the bottles with 12 ounces of soft drink. A random sample of 49
bottles is selected, and the contents are measured. The sample
yielded a mean content of 11.88 ounces with a standard deviation of
0.35 ounces.
A) Specify the rejection region for = 0.01. Reject H0

B) What is the conclusion

Automated filling machine is used to fill bottles with liquid
detergent. A random sample of 25 bottles results in a sample
variance of fill volume of s2 = 0.0102 (fluid ounces)2 . If the
variance of fill volume exceeds 0.01 (fluid ounces)2 , an
unacceptable proportion of bottles will be underfilled or
overfilled.
a) Is there evidence in the sample data to suggest that the
manufacturer has a problem with underfilled or overfilled bottles?
Use α = 0.05, and assume...

Suppose a brewery has a filling machine that fills 12 ounce
bottles of beer . It is known that the amount of beer poured by
this filling machine follows a normal distribution with a mean of
12.14 ounces and a standard deviation of 0.06 ounce.
a)Find the probability that the bottle contains fewer than 12.00
ounces of beer.Label the sketch of the normal curve with the values
from the problem situation. Label the mean and the desired outcome.

A local brewery distributes beer bottles labeled 32 ounces. A
government agency claims that the brewery is cheating the consumer.
(Cheating the consumer means selling less than what you are saying
you are selling). The agency selects 75 of those bottles, measures
their contents, and obtains a mean of 31.7 ounces and a standard
deviation of 0.70 ounces. Use a level of significance of 0.05. Can
you support the government agency's claim? Answer the
following:
A) State the hypothesis.
B)...

A machine fills medication bottles. Even though the
bottles are labeled “32 fl.oz.,” because the machine is not exact,
the manufacturer sets the machine at 34 fl.oz, hoping to avoid
underfilling the bottles. The actual amount of medication filled by
the machine is approximately normal with mean of 34 fl.oz. and
standard deviation of 1.8 fl.oz.
1. (4 pts) What is the probability a randomly chosen
bottle has less than 32 fl.oz. of medication?
2. (6 pts) The state consumer...

Suppose a company sells liquid soap in bottles that should
contain 7 ounces of soap. A quality control manager takes a random
sample of 40 bottles to check whether the machine which fills the
bottles is putting in the proper amount of soap. They will do a
hypothesis test. The null hypothesis says that the mean amount of
soap going into the bottles equals 7 ounces. The alternative
hypothesis says that the mean is different than 7 ounces. a. If...
