Question

Bottled water distributors want to determine whether the
contents of the 1 gallon bottle are actually 1 gallon. It is known
from the specifications of water bottling companies that the
standard deviation of water content per bottle is 0.02 gallons. If
a random sample of 50 bottles is chosen, and the average sample of
water content per 1 gallon bottle is 0.995 gallons.

a. Is there any evidence that the average water content in bottles
is not the same as 1.0 gallons? Use α = 0.01.)

b. Calculate the p-value and interpret the meaning.

P.S No handwritten answer would be very appreciated

Answer #1

a)

H0: = 1

Ha: 1

Test Statistic :-

Z = ( X̅ - µ ) / ( σ / √(n))

Z = ( 0.995 - 1 ) / ( 0.02 / √( 50 ))

Z = -1.77

Decision rule :-

Reject null hypothesis if | Z | > Z( α/2 )

Critical value Z(α/2) = Z( 0.01 /2 ) = 2.576

| Z | > Z( α/2 ) = 1.77 < 2.576

Result :- Fail to reject null hypothesis

Conclusion - We do not have sufficient evidence to support the claim that the average water

content in bottles is not the same as 1.0 gallons

b)

For two tailed test,

P value = 2 * P(Z < z )

= 2 * P ( Z < -1.77 )

= 2 * 0.0384 (From Z table)

= 0.0768

Assuming nul hypothesis is true, average difference or more 7.68% of the times dues to sampling error.

Supplementary Problem 18.15
A bottled-water company has been randomly inspecting bottles of
water to determine whether they are acceptable for delivery and
sale. The inspectors are looking at water quality, bottle
condition, and seal tightness. A series of 10 random samples of 50
bottles each is taken. Some bottles are rejected. Use the following
information on the number of bottles from each batch that were
rejected as being out of compliance to construct a p
chart.
