Question

A random sample of 21 nickels in circulation were measured with a very accurate micrometer to find a mean of 0.834343 inch and a standard deviation of 0.001886 inch. At a 5% level of significance, are nickels in circulation on average smaller than the US Mint's manufactured specification of 0.835 inch?

please type answer

Answer #1

Here claim is that mean is smaller than 0.835

So hypothesis here is vs

As sample size is less than 30, and population standard deviation is not known, we will use t distribution to find test statistics

The t-critical value for a left-tailed test, for a significance level of α=0.05 is

tc=−1.725

*Graphically*

As t statistics do not fall in the rejection region we fail to reject the null hypothesis

Hence we do not have sufficient evidence to support the claim that mean is smaller than 0.835

A random sample of 21 nickels in circulation were measured with
a very accurate micrometer to find a mean of 0.834343 inch and a
standard deviation of 0.001886 inch.
What is a 99% confidence interval for the standard deviation
(correct to 4 decimal places) of all circulating nickels?
Show work please and thank you.

Prob-3
Breaking strengths of a random sample of 21 molded plastic
housing were measured, and a sample standard deviation of S=19.52
was obtained. A confidence interval (439.23, 460.77) for the
average strength of molded plastic housings were constructed from
these results. What is the confidence level of this confidence
interval?

Heights were measured for a random sample of 11 plants grown
while being treated with a particular nutrient. The sample mean and
sample standard deviation of those height measurements were 35
centimeters and 8 centimeters, respectively. Assume that the
population of heights of treated plants is normally distributed
with mean μ. Based on the sample, can it be concluded that μ is
different from 42 centimeters? Use the 0.05 level of significance.

1) The sample mean and
standard deviation from a random sample of 21 observations from a
normal population were computed as ?¯=25 and s = 8. Calculate the t
statistic of the test required to determine whether there is enough
evidence to infer at the 6% significance level that the population
mean is greater than 21.

1. The mean weight of all 21-year-old women 132 pounds. A random
sample of 35 vegetarian women who are 21 years old showed a sample
mean of 127 pounds with a standard deviation of 15 pounds. The
women's measurements were independent of each other. Determine
whether the mean weight for 21-year old vegetarian women is
significantly less than 132, using a significance level of 5%

A random sample of 32 baseball players and a random sample of 27
soccer player were obtained and each player was weighed in pounds.
The mean weight of the baseball players is 186 pounds with a
standard deviation of 10.1 pounds. The mean weight of the soccer
players is 168 pounds with a standard deviation of 3.0 pounds. Use
a significance level of .05 to test the claim that the mean weight
of baseball players is the same as the...

5. A simple random sample of 25 filtered 100 mm cigarettes is
obtained, and the tar content of each cigarette is measured. The
sample has a mean of 13.2 mg and a standard deviation of 3.7 mg.
Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that the mean tar
content of filtered 100 mm cigarettes is less than 21.1 mg, which
is the mean for unfiltered king size cigarettes.

Let x be a random variable that represents the hemoglobin count
(HC) in human blood (measured in grams per milliliter). In healthy
adult females, x has an approximately normal distribution with a
population mean of μ=14.2, and population standard deviation of
σ=2.5. Suppose a female patient had 10 blood tests over the past
year, and the sample mean HC was determined to be x¯¯¯=15.1. What
is the value of the sample test statistic (z)? What is the P-value
of the...
