Question

A shareholders' group is lodging a protest against your company.
The shareholders group claimed that the mean tenure for a chief
exective office (CEO) was at least 9 years. A survey of 72
companies reported in The Wall Street Journal found a sample mean
tenure of 8.6 years for CEOs with a standard deviation of s=s= 5.1
years (The Wall Street Journal, January 2, 2007). You don't know
the population standard deviation but can assume it is normally
distributed.

You want to formulate and test a hypothesis that can be used to
challenge the validity of the claim made by the group, at a
significance level of α=0.005α=0.005. Your hypotheses are:

Ho:μ=9Ho:μ=9

Ha:μ<9Ha:μ<9

What is the test statistic for this sample?

test statistic = (Report answer accurate to 3 decimal
places.)

What is the p-value for this sample?

p-value = (Report answer accurate to 4 decimal
places.)

The p-value is...

- less than (or equal to) αα
- greater than αα

This test statistic leads to a decision to...

- reject the null
- accept the null
- fail to reject the null

As such, the final conclusion is that...

- There is sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim that the population mean is less than 9.
- There is not sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim that the population mean is less than 9.
- The sample data support the claim that the population mean is less than 9.
- There is not sufficient sample evidence to support the claim that the population mean is less than 9.
