Question

Some sports that involve a significant amount of running, jumping, or hopping put participants at risk for Achilles tendinopathy (AT), an inflammation and thickening of the Achilles tendon. A study looked at the diameter (in mm) of the affected tendons for patients who participated in these types of sports activities. Suppose that the Achilles tendon diameters in the general population have a mean of 5.95 millimeters (mm). When the diameters of the affected tendon were measured for a random sample of 34 patients, the average diameter was 9.50 with a standard deviation of 1.98 mm. Is there sufficient evidence to indicate that the average diameter of the tendon for patients with AT is greater than 5.95 mm? Test at the 5% level of significance.

State the null and alternative hypotheses.

H0: μ < 5.95 versus Ha: μ > 5.95

H0: μ = 5.95 versus Ha: μ > 5.95

H0: μ = 5.95 versus Ha: μ ≠ 5.95

H0: μ ≠ 5.95 versus Ha: μ = 5.95

H0: μ = 5.95 versus Ha: μ < 5.95

Find the test statistic and rejection region. (Round your answers to two decimal places. If the test is one-tailed, enter NONE for the unused region.)

test statistic z =

rejection region

z >

z <

State your conclusion.

H0 is rejected. There is insufficient evidence to indicate that the average diameter of the tendon for patients with AT is greater than 5.95 mm. H0 is not rejected. There is insufficient evidence to indicate that the average diameter of the tendon for patients with AT is greater than 5.95 mm.

H0 is not rejected. There is sufficient evidence to indicate that the average diameter of the tendon for patients with AT is greater than 5.95 mm.

H0 is rejected. There is sufficient evidence to indicate that the average diameter of the tendon for patients with AT is greater than 5.95 mm.

Answer #1

Null hypothesis is H0: mean = 5.95

Alternate hypothesis is H1: mean > 5.95

test statistic = (9.5-5.95)/1.98/sqrt(34) = 10.45

at alpha = 0.05 this is a right tailed test so Z at 0.05 is
1.645

If test statistic is greater than 1.645 than reject null hypothesis
else do not reject the null hypothesis.

As we can see that Ztest>1.645, So H0 is rejected. there is
sufficient evidence to indicate that the average diameter of the
tenfon for patients with AT is greater than 5.595 mm.

Acid rain—rain with a pH value less than 5.7, caused by the
reaction of certain air pollutants with rainwater—is a growing
problem in the United States. Pure rain falling through clean air
registers a pH value of 5.7 (pH is a measure of acidity: 0 is acid;
14 is alkaline). A sample of n = 30 rainfalls produced pH
readings with x = 3.7 and s = 0.5. Do the data
provide sufficient evidence to indicate that the mean pH...

Many companies are becoming involved in flextime, in which a
worker schedules his or her own work hours or compresses work
weeks. A company that was contemplating the installation of a
flextime schedule estimated that it needed a minimum mean of 7
hours per day per assembly worker in order to operate effectively.
Each of a random sample of 90 of the company's assemblers was asked
to submit a tentative flextime schedule. If the mean number of
hours per day...

A random sample of 100 observations from a quantitative
population produced a sample mean of 21.5 and a sample standard
deviation of 8.2. Use the p-value approach to determine whether the
population mean is different from 23. Explain your conclusions.
(Use α = 0.05.) State the null and alternative hypotheses. H0: μ =
23 versus Ha: μ < 23 H0: μ = 23 versus Ha: μ > 23 H0: μ = 23
versus Ha: μ ≠ 23 H0: μ <...

To properly treat patients, drugs prescribed by physicians must
not only have a mean potency value as specified on the drug's
container, but also the variation in potency values must be small.
Otherwise, pharmacists would be distributing drug prescriptions
that could be harmfully potent or have a low potency and be
ineffective. A drug manufacturer claims that his drug has a potency
of 5 ± 0.1 milligram per cubic centimeter (mg/cc). A random sample
of four containers gave potency readings...

Independent random samples of
n1 = 170
and
n2 = 170
observations were randomly selected from binomial populations 1
and 2, respectively. Sample 1 had 96 successes, and sample 2 had
103 successes.
You wish to perform a hypothesis test to determine if there is a
difference in the sample proportions
p1
and
p2.
(a)
State the null and alternative hypotheses.
H0:
(p1 − p2)
< 0 versus Ha:
(p1 − p2)
> 0

Industrial wastes and sewage dumped into our rivers and streams
absorb oxygen and thereby reduce the amount of dissolved oxygen
available for fish and other forms of aquatic life. One state
agency requires a minimum of 5 parts per million (ppm) of dissolved
oxygen in order for the oxygen content to be sufficient to support
aquatic life. Six water specimens taken from a river at a specific
location during the low-water season (July) gave readings of 4.9,
5.0, 5.0, 5.1,...

An experiment was conducted to test the effect of a new drug on
a viral infection. After the infection was induced in 100 mice, the
mice were randomly split into two groups of 50. The first group,
the control group, received no treatment for the
infection, and the second group received the drug. After a 30-day
period, the proportions of survivors, p?1 and
p?2, in the two groups were found to be 0.38 and 0.66,
respectively.
(a) Is there sufficient...
