Question

a light bulb manufacturer guarantees that the mean life of a certain type of light bulb is at least 762 hours.A random sample of 20 light bulbs has a mean life of 736 hours. assume the population. is normally distributed and the population standard deviation is 65 hours. at a=0.08

Answer #1

Significance level :

Test statistic :

This is a left tailed test

critical value : ( using excel formula NORM.S.INV(0.08) )

Rejection region : T < -1.4051

P-value = 0.0368 ( using excel formula NORM.S.DIST(-1.7889,TRUE))

Since the P value is less than the significance level 0.08, and test statistic lie in the rejection region we shall reject the null hypothesis.

Thus we have evidence to reject the claim of the light bulb manufacturer that guarantees that the mean life of a certain type of light bulb is at least 762 hours.

A light bulb manufacturer guarantees that the mean life of a
certain type of light bulb is at least 720 hours. A random sample
of 51 light bulbs as a mean of 712.8 hours with a population
standard deviation of 62 hours. At an α=0.05, can you support the
company’s claim using the test statistic? @See text pages

A. Claim is the null, fail to reject the null and support claim
as test statistic (-0.83) is not in the...

(CO 5) A light bulb manufacturer guarantees that the mean life
of a certain type of light bulb is at least 720 hours. A random
sample of 51 light bulbs as a mean of 712.8 hours with a population
standard deviation of 62 hours. At an α=0.05, can you support the
company’s claim using the test statistic?
Claim is the null, reject the null and cannot support claim as
test statistic (-0.83) is in the rejection region defined by the...

The quality control manager at a light-bulb factory needs to
estimate the mean life of a new type of light-bulb. The population
standard deviation is assumed to be 65 hours. A random sample of 40
light-bulbs shows a sample mean life of 505 hours. Construct and
explain a 95% confidence interval estimate of the population mean
life of the new light-bulb.
what size sample would be needed to achieve a margin of error of
15 hours or less?

For a random sample of 10 light bulbs, the mean bulb life is
4,000 hr with a sample standard deviation 200. For another brand of
bulbs, a random sample of 8 has a sample mean of 4,300 hr and a
sample standard deviation of 250. Assume that the life of a light
bulb is normally distributed and the standard deviations of the two
populations are equal. We test the hypothesis that there is no
difference between the mean operating life...

The quality control manager at a light-bulb factory
needs to estimate the mean life of a new type of light-bulb. The
population standard deviation is assumed to be 50 hours. A random
sample of 35 light-bulbs shows a sample mean life of 490 hours.
Construct and explain a 90% confidence interval estimate of the
population mean life of the new light-bulb. What size sample would
be needed to achieve a margin of error of 15 hours or less? Show
all...

The quality control manager at a light bulb factory needs to
estimate the mean life of a large shipment of light bulbs. The
standard deviation is 91 hours. A random sample of 49 light bulbs
indicated a sample mean life of 290 hours. Complete parts (a)
through (d) below.
A. Construct a 99% confidence interval estimate for the
population mean life of light bulbs in this shipment. The 99%
confidence interval estimate is from a lower limit of [ ]...

The life in hours of a 75-W light bulb is known to be
approximately normally distributed, with a standard deviation of σ
= 25 hours. A random sample of 20 bulbs has a mean life of x¯ =
1014 hours.
Suppose we wanted to be 90% confidence that the error in
estimating the mean life in hours is less than 10. What sample size
should be used? NOTE: This requires an INTEGER.

The quality control manager at a light bulb factory needs to
estimate the mean life of a large shipment of light bulbs. The
standard deviation is 98 hours. A random sample of 49 light bulbs
indicated a sample mean life of 300 hours.
(a) Construct a 99% confidence interval estimate for the
population mean life of light bulbs in this shipment.
(Ans.) The 99% confidence interval estimate is from a lower
limit of 263.9 hours to an upper limit of...

Suppose that a certain brand of light bulb has a mean life of
450 hours and a standard deviation of 73 hours. Assuming the data
are bell-shaped: (Show work to get full credit)
a. Would it be unusual for a light bulb to have a life span of
320 hours? 615 hours? Justify each response.
b. According to the Empirical Rule, 99.7% of the light bulbs
have a lifetime between what two values?
c. Determine the percentage of light bulbs...

A light bulb manufacturer wants to advertise a life length
interval that excludes no more than 8% of the life lengths on light
bulbs of a particular type that she sells. The only information she
has is that, for a large number of light bulbs tested, the mean
life length was 1500 hours, and the standard deviation was 200
hours. What interval would you suggest? Show your work.
