Question

You wish to test the following claim (Ha) at a significance level of α=0.02.

Ho: μ = 83.4

Ha: μ > 83.4

You believe the population is normally distributed, but you do not
know the standard deviation. You obtain a sample of size n=54, with
mean M=85.2, and a standard deviation of SD=11.7.

**1. What is the test statistic for this sample? (Report
answer accurate to THREE decimal places.)**

test statistic =

**2. What is the p-value for this sample? (Report answer
accurate to THREE decimal places.)**

p-value =

**3. The p-value is...**

a. less than (or equal to) αα

b. greater than αα

**4. This test statistic leads to a decision
to...**

a. reject the null

b. accept the null

c. fail to reject the null

**5. As such, the final conclusion is that...**

a. There is sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim that the population mean is greater than 83.4.

b. There is not sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim that the population mean is greater than 83.4.

c. The sample data support the claim that the population mean is greater than 83.4.

d. There is not sufficient sample evidence to support the claim that the population mean is greater than 83.4.

Answer #1

Solution :

This is the right tailed test .

Test statistic = z

= ( - ) / / n

= (85.2 - 83.4) / 11.7 / 54

Test statistic = 1.130

P(z > 1.130) = 1 - P(z < 1.130) = 0.129

P-value = 0.129

= 0.02

P-value >

Fail to reject the null hypothesis .

b. There is not sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim that the population mean is greater than 83.4.

You obtain 34.9% success in a sample of size n1=450 from the first
population. You obtain 41.5% successes in a sample of size n2=638
from the second population. For this test, you should NOT use the
continuity correction, and you should use the normal distribution
as an approximation for the binomial distribution.
