Question

The mean cost of a basic rental car per week is said to be greater than $125 per week. To determine if this is true, a random sample of 25 rental cars is taken and resulted in an average of $130.50 and an sample standard deviation of $15.40.

Test the appropriate hypotheses at = 0.05 (1 point each).

H0: _________________

H1: _________________

Test statistic : _________________

p-value : _________________

Is the mean cost greater than $125/week ? (circle one) YES NO

Answer #1

Solution :

= 125

=130.50

s =15.40

n = 25

This is the right tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H0 : =

Ha : > 1

Test statistic = t

= ( - ) / s / n

= (130.50 -125 ) /15.40 / 25

= 1.786

Test statistic = t = 1.786

P-value =0.0434

= 0.05

P-value <

0.0434 < 0.05

Reject the null hypothesis .

Therefore, there is enough evidence to claim that the population mean μ is greater than 125 No

The average cost of a hotel room is said to be $170
per night. To determine if this is true, a random sample of 50
hotels is taken and resulted in a mean of $172.50 and an S of
$15.40.
At 98% confidence level, the positive value of the
critical value is______

A car dealer wants to examine the relationship between the
number of TV ads run per week and the number of cars sold per week.
Suppose a sample of 6 weeks shows that the correlation coefficient
is 0.828. Is there a statistically significant relationship between
the number of ads and the number of cars sold? Test using α=0.05.
Set up the null and alternate hypotheses.
Calculate an appropriate test statistic.

Q) The manager of a car rental firm
claims that the average kilometers traveled per day by each of its
cars rented in Ankara differs from 70km. To justify this claim they
collected a random sample of 25 cars. The sample yields an average
of 85.5kms per day and the population standard deviation is known
as 19.3kms per day. It is assumed that the kilometers traveled is
normally distributed. Take the...

The median rental for a three bedroom bungalow is 2400 per
week. A random sample or 300 units showed 10 for exactly 2400 per
week and 170 rented for more than 2400. Can we conclude that the
median rental is more than 2400 (at a 0.05 level)
a. State Ho and H1
b. Give a decision rule
c. Arrive at a decision

The profit per new car sold by
a Winnipeg automobile dealer varies from car to car. The average
profit per sale tabulated for the past 6 days was $368 with a
standard deviation of $190 To test if there is sufficient evidence
to indicate that average profit per sale is less than $480, the
appropriate null and alternative hypotheses for the test
are:
a) H0: μ ≥ $368 vs. H1: μ <
$480
b) H0: μ ≥ $480 vs. H1: μ < $480...

A car manufacturer claims that its cars make on average 30 miles
per gallon on a highway. A consumer group tests 25 cars on a
highway and finds the average of 27 miles per gallon and a standard
deviation of 5.81 miles per gallon. Do these results doubt the
claim made by the car manufacturer about the population mean μ?
Test the hypotheses H0: μ =30 versus Ha:μ ≠ 30 at 0.05 level of
significance.
Suppose that a test of...

A random sample of 20 binomial trials resulted in 8 successes.
Test the claim that the population proportion of successes does not
equal 0.50. Use a level of significance of 0.05. (a) Can a normal
distribution be used for the distribution? Explain. Yes, n·p and
n·q are both less than 5. No, n·p is greater than 5, but n·q is
less than 5. Yes, n·p and n·q are both greater than 5. No, n·p and
n·q are both less than...

Some college graduates employed full-time work more than 40
hours per week, and some work fewer than 40 hours per week. We
suspect that the mean number of hours worked per week by college
graduates, μ , is different from 40 hours and wish to do a
statistical test. We select a random sample of college graduates
employed full-time and find that the mean of the sample is 42 hours
and that the standard deviation is 4 hours.
What are...
