Question

A local brewery distributes beer bottles labeled 32 ounces. A government agency claims that the brewery is cheating the consumer. (Cheating the consumer means selling less than what you are saying you are selling). The agency selects 75 of those bottles, measures their contents, and obtains a mean of 31.7 ounces and a standard deviation of 0.70 ounces. Use a level of significance of 0.05. Can you support the government agency's claim? Answer the following:

A) State the hypothesis.

B) Identify the level of significance.

C) Draw the distribution, shade the tail(s) and label the values of the standardized test statistic and the p-value.

D) Make your decision and state why.

E) Write the interpretation and answer the question.

Answer #1

To Test :-

H0 :-

H1 :-

Test Statistic :-

t = -3.7115

Test Criteria :-

Reject null hypothesis if

Result :- Reject null hypothesis

Decision based on P value

P - value = P ( t > 3.7115 ) = 0.0002

Reject null hypothesis if P value <
level of significance

P - value = 0.0002 < 0.05 ,hence we reject null hypothesis

Conclusion :- Reject null hypothesis

There is sufficient evidence to support the claim that the brewery is cheating the consumer at 5% level of significance.

A local brewery distributes beer in bottles labeled 24 ounces. A
government agency thinks that the brewery is cheating its
customers. The agency selects 50 of these bottles, measures their
contents, and obtains a sample mean of 23.6 ounces with a standard
deviation of 0.70 ounce. Use a 0.01 significance level to test the
agency's claim that the brewery is cheating its customers. DON'T

A local brewery distributes beer in bottles labeled 16.9 fluid
ounces. A government agency thinks that the brewery is cheating its
customers. The agency selects 31 of these bottles, measures their
contents, and obtains a sample mean of 16.71 fluid ounces and a
standard deviation of 0.51 fluid ounce. Does the sample show that
the government agency is correct in thinking that the mean amount
of beer is less than 16.9 fluid ounces? Use a = 0.05.
a. State the...

8a. Means - A brewery distributes beer in bottles labeled 10
ounces. Some people think they are getting less than they pay for.
The local Bureau of Weights and Measures randomly selects 70 of
these bottles, measures their contents and obtains a sample mean of
9.9 ounces. Assuming that σ is known to be 0.10 ounces, is it valid
at a 0.05 significance level to conclude that the brewery is
cheating the consumer?
8b. (Means) A bottling company distributes pop...

A local juice manufacturer distributes juice in bottles labeled
12 ounces. A government agency thinks that the company is cheating
its customers. The agency selects 20 of these bottles, measures
their contents, and obtains a sample mean of 11.7 ounces with a
standard deviation of 0.7 ounce. Use a 0.01 significance level to
test the agency's claim that the company is cheating its
customers.
a) State the null and alternative hypotheses.
b) Verify conditions have been met by stating them...

Label what approach you are using: classical or p-value. A local
juice manufacturer distributes juice in bottles labeled 12 ounces.
A government agency thinks that the company is cheating its
customers by giving the customers less juice than labeled. The
agency selects 35 of these bottles via simple random sampling,
measures their contents, and obtains a sample mean of 11.7 ounces
with a standard deviation of 0.7 ounce. Use a 0.01 significance
level to test the agencyʹs claim that the...

A local chip manufacturer distributes chips in bags labeled as
150g. A group of consumers believe they are being cheated. They run
a test on 32 bags, measures their contents, and obtains a sample
mean of 145 grams with a standard deviation of 6 ounces. Use a 0.01
significance level to test the consumer's claim that the company is
cheating its customers.
Null Hypothesis:
Alternate Hypothesis:
P-value: Conclusion:
Interpretation:

_____11) If the null hypothesis is that the population mean is
equal to 150 and a sample
mean of 113 gave significant support against the
null hypothesis, which of the
following sample means would be certain to give
support against the null
hypothesis.
a)
114
b.)
122
c.)
264
d.)
112

would .
a.) reject
the null hypothesis
b.) accept...
