Question

Test the claim about the population mean μ at the level of significance α. Assume the population is normally distributed. Write out null and alternative hypotheses, your critical t-score and your t-test statistic. Decide whether you would reject or fail to reject your null hypothesis.

Claim μ ≥ 13.9

α = 0.05

Sample statistics: x̅ = 13, s = 1.3, n = 10

H_{0}:

H_{a}:

t_{0}:

t-test statistic:

Decision:

Answer #1

Solution :

= 13.9

=13

S =1.3

n = 10

This is the right tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H0 : = 13.9

Ha : ≥ 13.9

Test statistic = t

= ( - ) / S / n

= (13 -13.9 ) /1.3 / 10

= -2.189

Test statistic = t = -2.189

P-value = 0.9718

= 0.05

P-value >

0.9718 > 0.05

Fail to reject the null hypothesis .

There is insufficient evidence to suggest that

Test the claim about the population mean μ at the level of
significance α. Assume the population is normally distributed.
Write out null and alternative hypotheses, your critical z-score
and your z-test statistic. Decide whether you would reject or fail
to reject your null hypothesis.

t-test. Test the following claim about the population mean μ at
the given level of significanceα using the given sample statistics.
Assume that the population follows a normal distribution.
(1) State the null hypothesis, H0, and the alternate hypothesis,
Ha indicating which is the claim. You should also list the level of
significance, α and state the type of hypothesis test that must be
done (i.e. left-tailed, right-tailed, or two-tailed).
(2) Show your calculation of the test statistic.
(3) Depending...

(b) At a significance level α = 0.05, would your decision be to
reject H0 or fail to reject H0?
