Question

Your local coffee shop is deciding whether or not to offer Coca-Cola. It is only viable for them to offer Coca-Cola if more than 33 percent of their customers buy the product. They survey 120 customers and find that 50 want to buy the product.

What are an appropriate null and alternative hypothesis?

What is the sample proportion?

What is the test statistic?

Answer #1

1.A poll of 64 people reveals that 63.7% prefer Pepsi to
Coca-Cola. You want to test the hypothesis that among the
population Coca-Cola is preferred to Pepsi.
Report the z-statistic for this test.
Note: Respondents only have the choice of the two, so
Coca-Cola is preferred to Pepsi if the proportion who prefer Pepsi
is less than 50%.
2.A poll of 67 Arizonans finds that 49.7% of them say they like
Thai food. A similar poll of 62 Californians finds...

A brand new, local coffee shop must monitor the temperature at
the coffee is brewed. Too much variation will cause inconsistent
taste. Over the first 6 months of business, the standard deviation
in the temperature of the water was 1.5°F. A random sample of 30
pots in the first week of business in March had a standard
deviation of 2.1°F. This is a new company, which does not want to
incur unnecessary costs. So before the coffee shop calls in...

A coffee shop owner is worried about a slowdown in business
because a new shop opened up one block away. Before the new shop
opened, the owner’s customer traffic (customers per hour) was
normally distributed with a mean of fourteen. The owner randomly
surveyed sixteen hours and recorded a mean of thirteen customers
per hour, a standard deviation of three customers per hour. Develop
null and alternative hypothesis that will help deciding whether his
shop is in trouble (when slowdown...

A local Internet company claims that they offer wifi speeds in
residential settings of 250 MBPs. A consumer group suspects the
actual average is far less than 250 MBPs. They take a sample of 20
wifi signals by the Internet company and calculate the average to
be 260 MBPs. The signals are normally distributed with a standard
deviation of 18. State the appropriate null and alternative
hypotheses. Compute the value of the test statistic. Compute the
p-value. What can we...

A hospital is wanting to know whether or not they should serve
caffeinated coffee in their waiting rooms.
The hospital tested 31 patients heart rates before coffee and
then again after 2 cups of coffee.
You are asked to determine if there is sufficient evidence to
show that caffeinated coffee increases heart rate.
1. Identify the claim. 2. State the null and alternative
hypotheses, in words and in symbolic form. 3. Explain what type of
test you will be performing...

You have been hired by the Coca-Cola Company to determine if
students at University prefer Coke or Pepsi. A taste test was
performed where students were given two identical cups and were
asked to taste both drinks. They had to report which drink they
prefer. It was found that 69 out of 125 students indicated they
preferred cup that contained Coke.
1. (4 pts) What is the random variable in this problem? Does the
random variable have a binomial distribution?...

You have been hired to test whether the demand for a product
that your client produces varies between two demographic markets –
the Urban and Rural markets.
As such, in each market, you run a short survey that gauges
customers demand for your product and assigns them to one of three
categories – (i) High (ii) Medium
or (iii) Low.
You survey 70 people in the “Urban” market and find that their
demand falls into the following “buckets”
High
32...
