Question

Skittles Original Fruit bite-size candies are multicolored candies in a bag, and you can "Taste the Rainbow" with their five colors and flavors: green, lime; purple, grape; yellow, lemon; orange, orange; and red, strawberry. Unlike some of the other multicolored candies available, Skittles claims that their five colors are equally likely. In an attempt to reject this claim, a 4-oz bag of Skittles was purchased and the colors counted. Does this sample contradict Skittle's claim at the .05 level?

Red | Orange | Yellow | Green | Purple |

19 | 30 | 21 | 21 | 19 |

(a) Find the test statistic. (Give your answer correct to two
decimal places.)

(ii) Find the *p*-value. (Give your answer bounds
exactly.)

< *p* <

(b) State the appropriate conclusion.

Reject the null hypothesis, there is significant evidence to contradict Skittle's claim. Fail to reject the null hypothesis, there is not significant evidence to contradict Skittle's claim. Reject the null hypothesis, there is not significant evidence to contradict Skittle's claim. Fail to reject the null hypothesis, there is significant evidence to contradict Skittle's claim.

M&Ms are multicolored candies in a bag with six colors:
Brown, Blue, Red, Yellow, Green and Orange. Mars now claims that
all six colors are equally likely. In an attempt to reject the
claim, an 8-oz bag of M&Ms was purchased and the colors
counted. The results of the count are below. Does this sample
contradict Mars’ claim when α = 0.10? Brown Blue Red Yellow Green

The good people who make skittles say that 22% of all skittles
are purple, 21% are orange, 21% are yellow, 19% are red and 17% are
green. You want to test this and buy a bag of skittles. You find 90
are purple, 92 are orange, 88 are yellow, 85 are red and 86 are
green. Using alpha = .05, test the claim.
a) What is H0 ?
b) Run the test.

A coworker claims that Skittles candy contains equal quantities
of each color (purple, green, orange, yellow, and red). In other
words, 1/5 of all Skittles are purple, 1/5 of all Skittles are
green, etc. You, an avid consumer of Skittles, disagree with her
claim. Test your coworker's claim at the α=0.10 level of
significance, using the data shown below from a random sample of
200 Skittles.
Which would be correct hypotheses for this test?

Favorite Skittles Flavor?
A poll sampled 93 people, asking them their favorite skittle flavor
by color (green, orange, purple, red, or yellow). A separate poll
sampled 113 people, again asking them their favorite skittle
flavor, but rather than by color they asked by the actual flavor
(lime, orange, grape, strawberry, and lemon, respectively). The
table below shows the results from both polls. Does the way people
choose their favorite Skittles type, by color or flavor, appear to
be related to...

Are candy color pieces uniformly distributed?
In a 2 ounce bag of Skittles, there are green, red, yellow,
orange and purple pieces. Ideally, each bag should have the same
amount of pieces for each color (so colors/categories are equally
likely.)
PROJECT: Pick (or Google a picture of) a bag of candy
(Skittles, M&Ms or Mike & Ikes, etc) that fulfills the
requirements listed below and perform a goodness of fit test for
uniform distribution (use a 0.05 significance level.)

Suppose a candy company representative claims that colored
candies are mixed such that each large production batch has
precisely the following proportions: 10% brown, 10% yellow, 10%
red, 30% organic, 20% green, and 20% blue. The colors present in a
sample of 442 candies was recorded. Is the representatives claim
about the expected proportions of each color refuted by the
data?

The good people who make skittles say that 22% of all skittles
are purple, 21% are orange, 21% are yellow, 19% are red and 17% are

are purple, 92 are orange, 88 are yellow, 85 are red and 86 are
green. Using alpha = .05, test the claim.
