Question

A fertilizer distributor sells fertilizer in 10 kg bags. A customer feels that the distributor sells underweight bags. To support his hunch, he purchases 8 bags of fertilizer. They have an average weight of 9.65 kg with standard deviation 0.7 kg. Does the customer have a case against the distributor? Test using α = 0.05.

Answer #1

Solution :

= 10

= 9.65

s = 0.7

n = 8

This is the left tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is

H0 : = 10

Ha : < 10

Test statistic = t

= ( - ) / s / n

= (9.65 - 10) / 0.7 / 8

= -1.41

P (t< -1.41 ) = 0.1007

P-value = 0.1007

= 0.05

0.01007 > 0.05

Do not reject the null hypothesis .

There is insufficient evidence to suggest that

Question 5: Assume that you make candy bars; the advertised
weight of the candy bar is 4.0 ounces with a standard deviation
(sigma) of 2.35 oz. however your production manager thinks that
this is not true; he thinks the candy bars are over-weight, they
weigh more than 4.0 oz. To test his claim, you
decided to randomly select a sample of 126 candy bars, the average
weight (x-bar) is 4.5 oz. At an alpha (a) of 0.01 what do you...

An investigator is looking at the relationship between
periodontal disease and the onset of hypertension. Suppose the
investigator decides to look at height as a variable that may

study. After collecting information about the height of each
participant, he assembles a database that approximates height with
the normal distribution.
