A machine in the lodge at a ski resort dispenses a hot chocolate drink. The average cup of hot supposed to contain 7.75 ounces. Let’s assume that x has a normal distribution with a population standard deviation of 0.3 ounces. A random sample of 50 cups of hot chocolate from this machine had a mean content of 7.82 ounces. Do you think the machine needs an adjustment? Can we conclude at the 5% level of significance that the mean amount of hot chocolate is different than 7.75 ounces?

a) State the null hypothesis H and the alternate hypothesis H.

b) What is the value of the sample test statistic (either z or t)?

The sample test statistic is and the value is . .

c) Find the P-value or show the critical region and critical value(s) on a graph of the sampling

distribution.

The P-value is

d) Based on your answers for parts (a) through (c), will you reject or fail to reject the null

Do reach out in the comments for any queries

a)

Below are the null and alternative Hypothesis,
Null Hypothesis, H0: μ = 7.75
Alternative Hypothesis, Ha: μ < 7.75

b)

Test statistic,
z = (xbar - mu)/(sigma/sqrt(n))
z = (7.82 - 7.75)/(0.3/sqrt(50))
z = 1.65

c)

P-value Approach
P-value = 0.9505 ( from z table as it is left tailed)

For the graph draw critical region after 1.65 to the left as critical region

d)

As P-value > 0.05, we cannot reject the null hypothesis.
