Question

Suppose that the weights of all mice are known to be normally distributed with mean µ = 30 grams and standard deviation σ = 5. You have a sample of 50 brown mice. The sample mean for your 50 brown mice is 53 grams. You believe that weights of brown mice are diﬀerent than mice in general. Suppose that the weights of brown mice are also normally distributed with known standard deviation of 5 grams.

(a) State the null and alternative hypotheses using correct mathematical notation.

(b) Calculate the test statistic z.

(c) Calculate the p-value for this test.

(d) Are these data signiﬁcant at the 95% signiﬁcance level?

(e) Interpret your p-value and state the conclusion of your hypothesis test in a complete sentence.

Answer #1

**Given:**

= 30 grams, n = 50, = 53 grams, = 5 grams, = 0.05

**Hypothesis:**

b)

**Test statistic:**

C)

**P-value: 0.0000**
...................Using standard Normal table

d)

P-value <
, i.e. 0.0000 < 0.05, that is **Reject Ho** at 5%
level of significance.

e)

**Therefore, there is sufficient evidence to conclude
that, the weights of brown mice are different than mice in
general.**

Suppose that memory for unrelated words is distributed normally
with a mean of µ = 50 with a standard deviation of σ = 12. A random
sample is selected from this population. After a treatment is
administered to the individuals in the sample, a memory test that
measures memory for unrelated words is administered, the sample
mean is found to be M = 55.
If the sample consists of n = 16 scores, can we
conclude that the treatment has...

a certain tropical fruit has weights that are normally
distributed, with a mean of 521 grams and a standard deviation of
12 grams. If you pick 15 fruits at random, what is the probability
that the mean weight of the sample will be between 520 grams and
521 grams? Round your answer to three decimal places.
