Question

The 95% confidence interval for the population mean was calculated based on a random sample with sample size of n=31 as (50 to 60). Calculate the outcome of a 2 sided alpha=0.05 test based on the null hypothesis of H0: mean=55, and determine if:

A.We would reject the null hypothesis.

B. We would accept the null hypothesis.

C. We woudl fail to reject the null hypothesis.

D. Not enough information to decide.

Answer #1

The answer is

We would fail to reject the null hypothesis

Reason:

Since the 95% confidence interval for population mean based on sample contain the hypothesised mean ( 55)

That means the our test statistic is in acceptance region with alpha = 0.05

So with (1-0.05)% that is 95% confidence we can say that there is no significant difference between the observed value and hypothesised value

If the 95% confidence interval doesn’t contain the hypothesised value, test statistic is in rejection region , we reject the null hypothesis

We are interested in estimating the mean amount of rain last
month in our county. It is known that the population standard
deviation is 1.5 inches generally for the month of interest. 49
instruments that measure rainfall were placed throughout the county
randomly. The sample mean from the instruments was 5.2 inches.

11. The correct interpretation of 95% confidence is (Circle
one):
a) We can be 95% confident that the interval includes the sample
mean.
b) 95% of all possible population means will be included in the
interval.
c) 95% of the possible sample means will be included in this
interval.
d) The method used to get the interval, when used over and over,
produces intervals which include the true population mean 95% of
the time.

T/F Question and explain
1.A 95% confidence interval for population mean μ is 65.6±12.8
from a sample of size n=96. If one took a second random sample of
the same size, then the probability that the 95% confidence
interval for μ based on the second sample contains 65.6 is
0.95.
2.The probability of a Type I error when α=0.05 and the null
hypothesis is true is 0.05.
3.Because an assumption of ANOVA is that all of the population
variances are...
