JB Nimble cares about the length of candle sticks. The lengths
of his favorite type of candle are supposed to be 15 inches, but he
notices that lengths vary from candle to candle. So, he wants to
know whether or not the mean length of his favorite type of candle
really is 15 inches. So, he carefully measures the lengths of a
simple random sample of 20 candles of this type and based on his
data, he calculates a mean of 15.6 inches and a standard deviation
of 1.2 inches.
Assuming that candle stick lengths are approximately normally
distributed, which of the choices below best describes the P-value
of the appropriate hypothesis test?
A. P-value = 0.025
B. 0.01 < P-value < 0.02
C. P-value = 0.0125
D. 0.02 < P-value < 0.04
Let denotes the mean length of his favorite type of candle.
ans-> D. 0.02 < P-value < 0.04
