Question

In order for a new drug to be sold on the market, the variance of the active ingredient in each dose should be 0.03mg. A random sample of 25tablets with a dosage strength of 56.57mg is taken. The variance of the active ingredient from this sample is found to be 0.01920.0192. Does the data suggests at α=0.005 that the variance of the drug in the tablets is less than the desired amount? Assume the population is normally distributed.

Step 3 of 5:

Determine the value of the test statistic. Round your answer to three decimal places.

Answer #1

We have to test the hypothesis that

Variance of active ingredient is less than 0.03

i.e. Null Hypothesis -

against

Alternative Hypothesis - ( Left-tailed test)

We use chi-square test to test significance of population variance.

The value of chi-square test statistic is

Given :

**Value of chi-square test statistic = 15.36**

Degrees of freedom = n-1 =24

Alpha: level of significance = 0.05

Since test is left-tailed and value of test statistic is 15.36, p-value is obtained by

**p-value = 0.0902**

**Decision:** Since p-value > level of
significance, **we failed to reject the null
hypothesis.**

**Conclusion:** There is **insufficient
evidence** to claim that the Variance of active ingredient
is less than 0.03.

The dosage of a drug in a particular tablet needs to be precise.
It is essential that the tablets contain 57.63mg of the active
ingredient with a variance of 0.03. A random sample of 25 tablets
finds that the variance of the active ingredient is 0.0294. Does
the data suggests at α=0.05 that the variance of the drug in the
tablets is less than the desired amount? Assume the population is
normally distributed.

A drug, which is used for treating cancer, has potentially
dangerous side effects if it is taken in doses which are larger
than 58.68mg, the required dosage for the treatment. It is
important that the variance of the amount of the active ingredient
is 0.02. 25 tablets are randomly selected and the amount of the
drug in each tablet is measured. It is determined that the variance
of the amount of active ingredient is 0.0191mg. Does the data
suggests at...

A drug, which is used for treating cancer, has potentially
dangerous side effects if it is taken in doses which are larger
than the required dosage for the treatment. The tablet should
contain 57.89mg and the standard deviation should be 0.04. 10
tablets are randomly selected and the amount of drug in each tablet
is measured. The sample has a mean of 57.885mg and a variance of
