Question

A random sample of 100 observations from a quantitative population produced a sample mean of 30.8 and a sample standard deviation of 7.8. Use the p-value approach to determine whether the population mean is different from 32. Explain your conclusions. (Use α = 0.05.)

Find the test statistic and the p-value. (Round your test statistic to two decimal places and your p-value to four decimal places.)

z =

p-value =

Answer #1

Solution :

This is the two tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H0 : = 32

Ha : 32

Test statistic(z)

= ( - ) / / n

= (30.8 - 32) / 7.8 / 100

**Test statistic = -1.54**

P(z < - 1.54) = 2 * P(z < -1.54) = 2 * 0.0618

**P-value = 0.1236**

= 0.05

P-value >

Fail to reject the null hypothesis .

A random sample of 100 observations from a quantitative
population produced a sample mean of 21.5 and a sample standard
deviation of 8.2. Use the p-value approach to determine whether the
population mean is different from 23. Explain your conclusions.
(Use α = 0.05.) State the null and alternative hypotheses. H0: μ =
23 versus Ha: μ < 23 H0: μ = 23 versus Ha: μ > 23 H0: μ = 23
versus Ha: μ ≠ 23 H0: μ <...

A random sample of n = 45 observations from a quantitative
population produced a mean x = 2.8 and a standard deviation s =

exceeds 2.7. Calculate β = P(accept H0 when μ = 2.8). (Use a 5%
significance level. Round your answer to four decimal places.) β
