Question

In an effort to make a healthier product, the Oriental Spice Sauce company has reduced the amount of sodium in their product to 900mg. In addition, the standard deviation of the amount of sodium should be 130. To make sure this new product continues to meet the standard, a random sample of 29 bottles is taken, and the standard deviation for the sample was 183.8264. Is there evidence at α=0.05 that the standard deviation of the sodium content exceeds the desired level? Assume the population is normally distributed.

Step 1 of 5: State the null and alternative hypotheses. Round to four decimal places when necessary.

Step 2 of 5: Determine the critical value(s) of the test statistic. If the test is two-tailed, separate the values with a comma. Round your answer to three decimal places.

Step 3 of 5: Determine the value of the test statistic. Round your answer to three decimal places.

Step 4 of 5: Make the decision.

*Reject Null Hypothesis*

*Fail to Reject Null Hypothesis*

Step 5 of 5: What is the conclusion?

*There is sufficient evidence to show that the standard
deviation of the sodium content exceeds the desired level.*

*There is not sufficient evidence to show that the standard
deviation of the sodium content exceeds the desired level.*

Answer #1

(A) we have to test whether the standard deviation of the sodium content exceeds the desired level. So, it is a right tailed hypothesis test

(4 decimals)

(B) sample size is n = 29

so, degree of freedom = n-1 = 29-1 = 28

critical value = CHIINV(alpha,df)

= CHIINV(0.05,28)

= 41.337

(C) Given that sigma = 130

n = 29 and s = 183.8264

test statistic=

(D) Reject Ho because test statistic is greater than critical value

**(E) There is sufficient evidence to show that the
standard deviation of the sodium content exceeds the desired
level.**

This is because the result is significant as we have rejected the null hypothesis. This means that the standard deviation is significantly greater than 130

In order to ensure the consistency of their product, the
Oriental Spice Sauce company has a strict policy that the standard
deviation of the sodium content in the product is 140mg. For one
size of bottle, the sodium content is supposed to be 900mg. In a
random sample of 11 bottles, the standard deviation was found to be
275.4444mg. Is there evidence at ?=0.01 that the standard deviation
of the sodium content exceeds the desired level? Assume the
population is...

The manufacturers of Oriental Spice Sauce are concerned that the
sodium levels in their product vary too much. A package of the
sauce is supposed to contain 700mg of sodium with a standard
deviation of 140mg. A sample of 20 packages was analyzed and the
sample standard deviation was 240.0092mg. Is there evidence at
α=0.01 that the standard deviation of the sodium content exceeds
the desired level? Assume the population is normally
distributed.

The nutrition label for Oriental Spice Sauce states that one
package of sauce has 1240 milligrams of sodium. to determine if the
label is accurate, the FDA randomly selects 190 packages of
oriental spice sauce and determines the sodium content. the sample
has an average of 1187.54 milligrams of sodium per package with a
sample standard deviation of 234.32 milligrams.
Step 1: Calculate a 99% confidence interval for the mean sodium

has an average of 1002.51 milligrams of sodium per package with a
sample standard deviation of 230.57 milligrams.
Step 1 of 2 :
Calculate a 95%95% confidence interval for the mean sodium
content in Oriental Spice Sauce.

In an annual report to investors, an investment firm claims that
the share price of one of their bond funds had very little
variability. The report shows the average price as $17.00 with a
variance of 0.11. One of the investors wants to investigate this
claim. He takes a random sample of the share prices for 11 days
throughout the last year and finds that the standard deviation of
the share price is 0.1626. Can the investor conclude that the...

The nutrition label for a new barbecue sauce states that one
bottle of sauce has 640mg of sodium. A local consumer group claims
that the sodium content is higher than what is reported on the
label. To determine the accuracy of the label, the FDA randomly
selects 12 bottles of the sauce and determines the sodium content.
Is there sufficient evidence to support the local consumer group’s
claim that the sodium content is higher than the nutrition label
states? Assume...
