Question

The Corona beer company produces bottles that hold 12 ounces of
liquid. Periodically, the company gets complaints that their
bottles are not holding enough liquid. To test this claim, the
bottling company randomly samples 64 bottles and finds the average
amount of liquid held by the bottles is 11.9155 ounces with a
standard deviation of 0.40 ounce. Suppose the *p*-value of
this test is 0.0455. State the proper conclusion.

Answer #1

solution:

the average amount of liquid in the bottles = = 12 ounces

the claim is that the average amount of liquid is less than 12 ounces

so, null and alternative hypothesis will be

sample size = 64

sample average = 11.9155

sample standard deviation = 0.40

and calculated p value found to be = 0.0455

let significance level

since p value = 0.0455 < 0.05, so rejecting the nul hypothesis

conclusion:

**there is enough evidence at 5 % significance level, that
the average amount of lilquid in the bottle is less than the 12
ounces.**

A bottling company produces bottles that hold 10 ounces of
liquid. Periodically, the company gets complaints that their
bottles are not holding enough liquid. To test this claim, the
bottling company randomly samples 22 bottles and finds the average
amountof liquid held by the bottles is 9.7 ounces with a standard
deviation of .2 ounce. ?=0.1( CV method)

A bottling company produces bottles that hold 8 ounces of
liquid. Periodically, the company gets complaints that their
bottles are not holding enough liquid. To test this claim, the
bottling company randomly samples 22 bottles and finds the average
amount of liquid held by the bottles is 7.8 ounces with a standard
deviation of 0.33 ounce. Which of the following is the set of
hypotheses the company wishes to test?
A. H0: μ<88 vs. Ha:μ=88
B.H0: μ=88 vs.Ha:μ<88
C. H0:μ=88...

A company that makes bottles produces bottles that, on average,
are supposed to hold 12 ounces of liquid. Periodically, the company
gets complaints that their bottles are too small and do not hold
enough liquid. To test this claim, the bottling company randomly
samples 19 bottles and finds the average amount of liquid held by
the bottles is 11.6 ounces with a standard deviation of .3 ounce.
Calculate the appropriate test statistic.

The company who produces Rattlesnake Stout is having a
bottling issue. Bottles of beverage claim to contain 16 ounces.
Customers are reporting that some bottles “ are underfilled” The
company’s bottling team sets the equipment so that bottles are
filled so that the mean (μ) = 16.00 ounces (as labeled) and the
standard deviation (σ) = 0.143 ounces. To check on consumer
complaints, the team collects a random sample of 34 bottles and
calculates the mean number of ounces (x)...

The Crown Bottling Company has installed a new bottling process
that will fill 12-ounce bottles of Cola. Both overfilling and
underfilling of bottles is undesirable. The company wishes to see
whether the mean bottle fill, µ, is close to the target of 12
ounces. The company samples 43 bottles. The sample mean is 11.89
and the standard deviation is such that s=0.11. a) Use a hypothesis
test, at a 1% level of significance to determine whether the filler
should be...

Suppose a company sells liquid soap in bottles that should
contain 7 ounces of soap. A quality control manager takes a random
sample of 40 bottles to check whether the machine which fills the
bottles is putting in the proper amount of soap. They will do a
hypothesis test. The null hypothesis says that the mean amount of
soap going into the bottles equals 7 ounces. The alternative
hypothesis says that the mean is different than 7 ounces. a. If...
