Question

1. Based on information from a large insurance company, 67% of all damage liability claims are made by single people under the age of 25. A random sample of 54 claims showed that 44 were made by single people under the age of 25. Does this indicate that the insurance claims of single people under the age of 25 is higher than the national percent reported by the large insurance company? Give the test statistic and your conclusion.

**a)** z = 2.263; fail to reject
*H*_{o} at the 5% significance level

**b)** z = -2.263; reject *H*_{o} at
the 5% significance level

**c)** z = -1.763; fail to reject
*H*_{o} at the 5% significance level

**d)** z = 2.263; reject *H*_{o} at
the 5% significance level

**e)** z = 1.763; reject *H*_{o} at
the 5% significance level

2. An auditor for a hardware store chain wished to compare the efficiency of two different auditing techniques. To do this he selected a sample of nine store accounts and applied auditing techniques A and B to each of the nine accounts selected. The number of errors found in each of techniques A and B is listed in the table below:

Errors in A | Errors in B |

27 | 13 |

30 | 19 |

28 | 21 |

30 | 19 |

34 | 36 |

32 | 27 |

31 | 31 |

22 | 23 |

27 | 32 |

Does the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the
number of errors in auditing technique A is fewer than the number
of errors in auditing technique B at the 0.01 level of
significance? Select the [Rejection Region, Decision of Reject
(RH_{0}) or Failure to Reject (FRH_{0})]. (Hint:
the samples are dependent)

**a)** [z < -2.9 and -z < -2.9,
FRH_{0}]

**b)** [t < -2.9, FRH_{0}]

**c)** [-t < 2.9 and t < 2.9,
RH_{0}]

**d)** [t > 2.9, FRH_{0}]

**e)** [t < -2.9 or -t < -2.9,
RH_{0}]

**f)** None of the above

Answer #1

**Solution:** 1. Based on information from a large
insurance company, 67% of all damage liability claims are made by
single people under the age of 25. A random sample of 54 claims
showed that 44 were made by single people under the age of 25. Does
this indicate that the insurance claims of single people under the
age of 25 is higher than the national percent reported by the large
insurance company? Give the test statistic and your conclusion.

**Answer: d)** z = 2.263; reject Ho at the 5%
significance level

2. Does the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the number of errors in auditing technique A is fewer than the number of errors in auditing technique B at the 0.01 level of significance? Select the [Rejection Region, Decision of Reject (RH0) or Failure to Reject (FRH0)]. (Hint: the samples are dependent)

**Answer:** **f)** None of the
above

The Toylot company makes an electric train with a motor that it
claims will draw an average of only 0.8 ampere (A) under a normal
load. A sample of nine motors was tested, and it was found that the
mean current was x = 1.32 A, with a sample standard
deviation of s = 0.44 A. Do the data indicate that the
Toylot claim of 0.8 A is too low? (Use a 1% level of
significance.)

3) The IRS claims that the mean amount of time it takes to
transfer information to a computer record is 15 minutes. Before
they will invest in a new system they decide to do a test run to
determine if the new system is faster than the present one. 25 tax
returns are randomly selected and transferred using the new system.
The mean time for transfer is 14.3 minutes, with standard deviation
4.2 minutes. At a level of significance of...

Recall that Benford's Law claims that numbers chosen from very
large data files tend to have "1" as the first nonzero digit
disproportionately often. In fact, research has shown that if you
randomly draw a number from a very large data file, the probability
of getting a number with "1" as the leading digit is about 0.301.
Now suppose you are the auditor for a very large corporation. The
revenue file contains millions of numbers in a large computer data...

This problem is based on information taken from The Merck
Manual (a reference manual used in most medical and nursing
schools). Hypertension is defined as a blood pressure reading over
140 mm Hg systolic and/or over 90 mm Hg diastolic. Hypertension, if
not corrected, can cause long-term health problems. In the
college-age population (18-24 years), about 9.2% have hypertension.
Suppose that a blood donor program is taking place in a college
dormitory this week (final exams week). Before each student...
