Question

A company that makes bottles produces bottles that, on average, are supposed to hold 12 ounces of liquid. Periodically, the company gets complaints that their bottles are too small and do not hold enough liquid. To test this claim, the bottling company randomly samples 19 bottles and finds the average amount of liquid held by the bottles is 11.6 ounces with a standard deviation of .3 ounce. Calculate the appropriate test statistic.

Answer #1

Solution :

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H0 : = 12

Ha : 12

Test statistic = t =

= ( - ) / s / n

= (11.6 - 12) / 0.3 / 19

Test statistic = t = -5.812

A company that makes bottles produces bottles that, on average,
are supposed to hold 12 ounces of liquid. Periodically, the company

The company who produces Rattlesnake Stout is having a
bottling issue. Bottles of beverage claim to contain 16 ounces.
Customers are reporting that some bottles “ are underfilled” The
company’s bottling team sets the equipment so that bottles are
filled so that the mean (μ) = 16.00 ounces (as labeled) and the

calculates the mean number of ounces (x)...

The Crown Bottling Company has installed a new bottling process
that will fill 12-ounce bottles of Cola. Both overfilling and
underfilling of bottles is undesirable. The company wishes to see
whether the mean bottle fill, µ, is close to the target of 12

test, at a 1% level of significance to determine whether the filler
should be...

A local company makes snack-size bags of potato chips. The
company produces batches of 400 snack-size bags using a process
designed to fill each bag with an average of 2 ounces of potato
chips. However, due to imperfect technology, the actual amount
placed in a given bag varies. Assume the population of filling
weights is normally distributed with a standard deviation of 0.1
ounce. The company periodically weighs samples of 10 bags to ensure
the proper filling process. The last...
