Question

A random sample of 500 of a certain brand of cola was taken to
see whether the mean weight was 16 fluid ounces as indicated on the
container. For the 500 sampled, the mean was found to be 15.9988
with a standard deviation of 0.0985. Does this brand of cola have a
population mean of 16 fluid ounces?

What is the p-value for this hypothesis test?

What is the test statistic for this hypothesis test?

What is the critical value of this hypothesis test?

What is the decision of the test?

Answer #1

H_{0} : µ = 16

H_{1} : µ ≠ 16

b) Test statistic

= -0.27

a) p-value = 2 * P(Z < -0.27) = 2 * 0.3936 = 0.7872

c) critical value = + Z_{0.025} = -1.96,
1.96

d) Decision: Do not reject H0. Because test statistic lies between -1.96 and 1.96

A certain brand of apple juice is supposed to contain 64 ounces
of juice. A random sample of 22 bottles of juice had a mean of
63.96 oz. with a standard deviation of .05 oz. Use a 0.10
significance level to test the claim that the mean amount of juice
in all bottles is different from 64 ounces. a. State the
appropriate null and alternative hypotheses. b. Compute the test
statistic. c. Compute the P-value for this test. d. Show...

A random sample of 500 persons was taken in a certain area if
test is positive for the Dengue . Let 60 persons were found with
positive test. Obtain 98% confidence limits for the proportion of
the Dengue positive cases.

ags of a certain brand of tortilla chips claim to have a net
weight of 14 ounces. Net weights actually vary slightly from bag to
bag and are Normally distributed with mean μ. A representative of a
consumer advocate group wishes to see if there is any evidence that
the mean net weight is less than advertised so he intends to test
the following hypotheses: H0: μ = 14, Ha: μ < 14 To do this, he
selects 16 bags...

A consumer advocacy group claims that the mean weight of a
certain brand of cereal boxes is less than 14 ounces. The weights
(in ounces) of the cereal in a random sample of 8 cereal boxes are
listed below. Test the claim at the 0.01 significance level.
14.5 13.5 14.1 13.6 14.0 14.4. 13.1 14.1
a) State the null and alternative hypotheses.
b) Find the value of the test statistic. You may use a graphing
calculator. Round to three decimal...

Problem # 8: A simple random sample of 85 basketball players is
taken from different teams and their mean weight is found to be 230
pounds and the standard deviation of the population is 18 pounds.
At the significance level of 0.01 test the claim that the average
weight for all basketball players is 225 pounds. Use the
traditional method of hypothesis testing. Find the critical
value(s).

Reconsider the study described in activity 16-12. The nellie mae
organization found that in random sample of 1413 undergraduate
students taken in 2004, 76% of the students sampled had a credit
card. Conduct a significance test of whether this sample result
provides strong evidence that more than 75% of all undergraduate
college students in the u.s had a credit card in 2004. Report the
hypothesis test statistic, and p value. Also check the technical
conditions of the test and summarize...

2. See problem 1. Corporate sends 20 "mystery shoppers" to a
certain location to see if the location's overall speed is
consistent with company standards. There will be a problem if the
location consistently takes longer than expected to process orders,
so the company wishes to test the null hypothesis
?0:? = 4.5
versus the alternate
?1:? > 4.5
a. To test the null, the company sends 20 mystery shoppers and
computes the mean time ? needed to process those...

The mean GPA at a certain large university is 2.80. A random
sample of 20 business students found a mean GPA of 2.95 with a
standard deviation of 0.31. Is there sufficient evidence to show
that the mean GPA for business students is greater than the mean
GPA for the university?
a) state the hypothesis
b) calculate the test statistic
c) find the p-value
d) make a statistical decision at a level of significance of
0.10
e) state your conclusion...

In order to compare
the means of two normal populations, independent random samples are
taken of sizes n1 = 400 and n2 = 400. The
results from the sample data yield:
Sample 1
Sample 2
sample mean = 5275
sample mean = 5240
s1 = 150
s2 = 200
To test the null
hypothesis H0: µ1 - µ2 = 0 versus
the alternative hypothesis Ha: µ1 -
µ2 > 0 at the 0.01 level of significance, the most
accurate statement...
