Question

A random sample of 16 drawn from a normal population yields a mean of 991 with a standard deviation of 15. Does this sample indicate that the mean is now different from the establish value of 1000? Use σ= .01.

A simple random sample of size n=15 is drawn from a population
that is normally distributed. The sample mean is found to be bar
over x=19.5
and the sample standard deviation is found to be s=6.3.
Determine if the population mean is different from 25 at the
alpha=.01 level of significance.
A) Determine the null and alternative hypotheses
H0: ___ ____ 25
H1: ____ ____ 25
B) Calculate the p value
C) State conclusion. Reject or not reject? Is there...

A random sample of size 16 is selected from a normal population
with a mean of 173 and a standard deviation of 12. What is the
probability that the sample mean will exceed 175? Give answer to
two decimal places.

A simple random sample
of 16 adults drawn from a certain population of adults yielded a
mean weight of 63kg. Assume that weights in the population are
approximately normally distributed with a variance of 49. Do the
sample data provide sufficient evidence for us to conclude that the
mean weight for the population is less than 70 kg? Let the
probability of committing a type I error be .01.
1. Write the
hypotheses, indicate the claim
2. find the critical...

A random sample is drawn from a population with mean μ = 72 and
standard deviation σ = 6.0. [You may find it useful to reference
the z table.]
a. Is the sampling distribution of the sample mean with n = 17
and n = 45 normally distributed?
Yes, both the sample means will have a normal distribution.
No, both the sample means will not have a normal
distribution.
No, only the sample mean with n = 17 will have...

A simple random sample is drawn from a population for estimating
the mean of the population. The mean from the sample is 25.6 and
the sample size is 60.\
1. If the population standard deviation is known to be 10.5,
construct a 95% confidence interval for the population mean.
2. If the population standard deviation is not known but the
sample standard deviation is calculated to be 11.5, construct a 95%
confidence interval for the population mean.
3. Do we...

A random sample is drawn from a population with mean μ
= 53 and standard deviation σ = 4.4. [You may find
