Question

A reporter with the Saint Pete Times is working on a story about the main factors making restaurants in the St. Pete area different from each other. The variable he is considering is the average meal price per person. The reporter selects a sample of 5 restaurants serving Italian food, Seafood and Steaks. The reporter believes that average price meal per person in the St Pete area is about the same independently of the type of restaurant. The table below shows sample mean for collected data in dollars. The MSE value is 7. Allow for an error of 5% with 12 degrees of freedom. Italian Seafood Steakhouse Sample Mean 14 17 20

a What is the critical value for the given level of confidence?

b. What is the test statistic for means A & B ? (allow for a difference in values of + or - 0.01)

c. What is the test statistic for means A & C? (allow for a difference in values of + or - 0.01)

d. What is the test statistic for means B & C? (allow for a difference in values of + or - 0.01)

e. What is your decision (with respect to the null hypotheses) after performing the test for means A & B, A & C and B & C respectively?

f. What is your conclusion after performing these tests with regards to which is different and which is the same?

Answer #1

a. the critical value for an error of 5% with 12 degrees of freedom , we find the critical t value from the statistics table at confidence level

the critical value is

b. means A and B is given as

we get test statistic as

c. the mean for C is given as

the test statixtics for means A and C is

d. the test statistics for mean B and C is

e. **since values of all test statistics we find above is
less than critical value -1.7823 , so we reject the null
hypothesis**

f. **after performing the test we conclude that population
means of A,B and C are all different**

The Chart Listed Is The Only Info You Need
(Anderson et al. 2015) A sample of 8 seafood restaurants, 8
Italian restaurants and 8 Steakhouses is selected. The meal price
(the average amount paid per person for dinner and drinks, minus
the tip) is recorded for each restaurant. The data is provided in
the spreadsheet "GrandStand.xlsx", which is available in the Week6
folder.
Use level of significance 0.05 to test whether there is a
significant difference among the mean meal...

1. A random sample of 860 births at St. Jude’s Hospital included
426 boys. The national proportion of newborn boy babies is 51.2%.
Use a 0.01 significance level to test the claim that the proportion
of newborn boy babies at this hospital is different than the
national average.
a. Draw a normal curve for the sampling distribution for samples
of size 860 births. Label the mean and the values for one, two and
three standard deviations above and below the...

A department store supervisor is concerned about customer
service. To check if this is an issue, the supervisor randomly
selected a sample of clerks from stores at three different
locations (A, B, C). Then the supervisor records the number of
returns associated with each clerk for a month. What can the
supervisor conclude with α = 0.01?

A random sample of
n1 = 49
measurements from a population with population standard
deviation
σ1 = 5
had a sample mean of
x1 = 8.
An independent random sample of
n2 = 64
measurements from a second population with population standard
deviation
σ2 = 6
had a sample mean of
x2 = 11.
Test the claim that the population means are different. Use
level of significance 0.01.(a) Check Requirements: What
distribution does the sample test statistic follow? Explain.

USA Today reported
that about 47% (.47) of the general consumer population in the
United States is loyal to the automobile manufacturer of their
choice. Suppose Chevrolet did a study of a random sample of 987
Chevrolet owners and found that 490 said they would buy another
Chevrolet.
Does this indicate
that the population proportion of consumers loyal to the Chevrolet
is more than 47%? Use α = 0.01. Solve the problem by
calculating the value of z and the...

A sample of soy bean plots were divided into three equal groups
in a completely randomized design, and each group received a
different formulation of a selective weed killer (wk). The
researchers measured the area of crop damage inflicted by each
formulation. The aim is to choose the weed killer formulation that
inflicts the least amount of crop damage. What can the researchers
conclude with an α of 0.01?
