Question

5)

• z-value should be expressed to three decimal places: e.g., z=1.645.

• Before you start each question, you should determine if you are dealing with the population mean or proportion since what you do depends on the type of parameter at hand.

• When handling proportion problems, write/use/plug proportions as decimals (e.g., not 54%, but .54).

• In the beginning, state clearly if you do a 1-tailed or 2-tailed test. State clearly your H0 and H1 using correct Greek letters, mathematical symbols, and subscripts. Do not state your hypotheses in prose form. Express numbers to the three decimal places.

• Use Z test, not t test. Don’t use p-value. Articulate if you reject H0. Justify why you reject or FTR H0.

• After articulating your statistical decision, state clearly your research conclusion in prose form: do NOT use Greek letters, mathematical symbols, or subscripts for the research conclusion. Show all the relevant quantities (e.g., sample statistics, SE, Z-statistic, to name a few) and label them properly: don’t omit anything.

• At the end of your answer, compute and interpret the corresponding CI.

• Write the lower and upper bounds in the CI for μ to the two decimal places: e.g., [11.33, 15.55].

• Write the lower and upper bounds in the CI for π (or P) to the four decimal places: .e.g., [.3012, .3875].

**5. A filling machine in a brewery is designed to fill
bottles with 355 ml of hard cider. In practice, however, volumes
vary slightly from bottle to bottle. In a sample of 49 bottles, the
mean volume of cider is found to be 353.3 ml, with a standard
deviation of 3.5 ml. At the 98% confidence level, what is your
conclusion?**

Answer #1

Answer)

We will use one sample z test as it is mentioned in the instructions that use z test not t test.

Null hypothesis Ho : u = 355

Alternate hypothesis H1 : u not equal to 355

This is two tailed test

Alpha = 0.02 (1-0.98)

As the test is two tailed we will first divide the alpha into two equal parts

0.02/2 = 0.01

From z table, P(z<-2.33) = p(z>2.33) = 0.01

That is critical values are -2.33 and 2.33 respectively

And rejection region is

Reject null hypothesis Ho if test statistics is greater than 2.33 or less than -2.33

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

Z = (353.3-355)/3.5/√49) = -3.4

As -3.4 is < -2.33

We reject null hypothesis Ho

Confidence interval.

Critical value z = 2.33

Margin of error (MOE) = z*s.d/√n

MOE = 2.33*3.5/√49 = 1.165

Confidence interval is given by

[Mean - MOE, Mean + MOE)

Mean = 353.3

[352.14, 354.47]

Q1. [5 pts] Suppose that Z follows a standard normal. Calculate
the probability that:
a)Z is less than 1.25.
b)Z is greater than 1.75.
c)Z is between 1.25 and 1.75.
d)Z is between -1.25 and 1.75.

According to the Vivino website, suppose the mean price for a
bottle of red wine that scores 4.0 or higher on the Vivino Rating
System is $32.48. A New England-based lifestyle magazine wants to
determine if red wines of the same quality are less expensive in
Providence, and it has collected prices for 61 randomly selected
red wines of similar quality from wine stores throughout...

Astronomers have recently discovered an unknown distant galaxy
and noticed something abnormal. Specifically, they suspect the
percentage of stars that host planets in this galaxy is lower than
is typical. (It is known that around 75% of stars throughout the
universe have planets). Given the current state of technology,
astronomers are not able to conduct a complete scan of all the
stars in this galaxy. So instead they randomly observed 45 stars
within the new galaxy, and found only 24...
