Question 3: Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company manufacture tires in North America. The daily production of the Eagle GT tire follows the normal distribution, with a mean of 200 and a standard deviation of 31. Recently, because of market expansion, new production methods have been introduced and new employees hired. The CEO of the company would like to investigate whether there has been a change in the weekly production of the Eagle GT and asks the Production Manager for the 180-day output report. The report stated that on average 205 tires were produced per day. At an alpha of 0.01 significance what can you conclude? (1 point each for a total of 4 points)

employees is **lower**. To test your claim, you take a
random sample of 121 employees at your company. You find the sample
average to be 8.9 vacation days. At an alpha of 0.05 what can you
conclude? (1 point each for a total of 4 points)

Question 1: At the local community college it has been reported the average age of first year college students is 20 years of age with a standard deviation of 7.2 years. As a college professor you believe it’s less. To test your claim, you take a random sample of 200 students, the average age 19.4 years. At an alpha of 0.02 what do you conclude? (1 point each for a total of 4 points)

a) Ho: u = 20

Ha : u < 20

As the population s.d is mentioned in the question we will use z table to conduct the test

B)

From z table, P(z<-2.05) = 0.02

So, critical value is -2.05

So we will reject Ho if test statistics is less than -2.05

C)

Test statistics z = (sample mean - claimed mean)/(s.d/√n)

Z = (19.4 - 20)/(7.2/√200) = -1.18

D)

As -1.18 is not less than -2.05

We fail to reject the null hypothesis

So we do not have enough evidence to conclude that mean is less than 20

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...

It is reported in USA Today that the average flight cost
nationwide is $327.31. You have never paid close to that amount and
you want to perform a hypothesis test that the true average is
actually different from $327.31. What are the appropriate
hypotheses for this test?
Question 1 options:
1)
HO: μ ≤ 327.31
HA: μ > 327.31
2)
HO: μ ≥ 327.31
HA: μ < 327.31
3)
HO: μ ≠ 327.31

Employees of a certain company took a mean of 6.8 vacation days
in 2016. The CEO of the company believes that in 2017 the average
number of sick days was less than 6.8. A sample of 52 employees
took a mean of 6.6 days in 2017, σ is known to be equal to 1.7. At
α = 0.02, test the CEO’s claim.

In the past the average age of employees of a large corporation
has been 40 years. Recently, the company has been hiring older
individuals. In order to determine whether there has been an
increase in the average age of all the employees, a sample of 25
employees was selected. The average age in the sample was 42.5
years with a sample standard deviation of 5 years. Using a
significance level of α = .01, do the sample data provide support...

A community college Math instructor feels that the average age
of community college students decreased since they started teaching
25 years ago. Looking up data from the year the instructor started
teaching, the mean age of community college students was 24.3 years
old, with a population standard deviation of 2.2 years. The Math
instructor took a sample of 40 of their current community college
students and found that the sample had a mean age of 23.7 years
old. Assume the...

A provost thinks that the mean age of students at his college is
not 21.2, like it was last school year. In a random sample of 18

accidents per month than the population average of communities of a
similar size?"
Which of the following represents the appropriate
decision rule and critical value(s), testing at an

Throughout the country, the proportion of first-time, first-year
community college students who return for their second year of
studies is p = 0.52 according to the Community College Survey of
Student Engagement. Suppose a community college institutes new
policies geared toward increasing student retention. The first year
this policy was in place there were n = 2843 first-time, first-year
students (N = 1, 050,000). Of these students, x = 1516 returned for
their second year of studies. Treat these students...
