Question

- Score on a 20-point assignment is normally distributed with a mean of 15 and standard deviation of 5. You believe that your friends are smarter and that their average is greater. You took a sample of 9 of your friends. The mean for this group is 18.

- What is the rejection region?
- Would you use the t test?
- The 95% confidence interval for the population mean is

Answer #1

Below are the null and alternative Hypothesis,

Null Hypothesis, H0: μ = 15

Alternative Hypothesis, Ha: μ > 15

Rejection Region

This is right tailed test, for α = 0.05

Critical value of z is 1.645.

Hence reject H0 if z > 1.645

**No, t-test cannot be used**

sample mean, xbar = 18

sample standard deviation, σ = 5

sample size, n = 9

Given CI level is 95%, hence α = 1 - 0.95 = 0.05

α/2 = 0.05/2 = 0.025, Zc = Z(α/2) = 1.96

CI = (xbar - Zc * s/sqrt(n) , xbar + Zc * s/sqrt(n))

CI = (18 - 1.96 * 5/sqrt(9) , 18 + 1.96 * 5/sqrt(9))

CI = (14.73 , 21.27)

Suppose the average number of calories in low-calorie dinner is
600 with a standard deviation of 100 calories. Your friend sells
healthy dinners at her restaurant. You believe that, in fact, the
average calories for average dinner is different from
600. To test the hypothesis, you took a sample of 16
dinners at your friend’s restaurant. The average for
this group is 650 calories.
