Question

A simple random sample of size

nequals=1515

is drawn from a population that is normally distributed. The sample mean is found to be

x overbarxequals=29.429.4

and the sample standard deviation is found to be

sequals=6.36.3.

Determine if the population mean is different from

2424

at the

alpha equals 0.01α=0.01

level of significance. Complete parts (a) through (d) below.

Answer #1

Answer)

As the population standard deviation is unknown here we will use t test

Ho : u = 24

Ha : u is not eqaul to 24

Test statistics t = (sample mean - claimed mean)/(s.d/√n)

N = 15

Sample mean = 29.4

S.d = 6.3

Claimed mean = 24

Test statistics t = 3.32

Degrees of freedom js equal to n-1, 14

For df 14 and test statistics of 3.32

P-value from t distribution is = 0.005057

As the obtained p-value (0.0051) is less than 0.01(given significance level)

Reject Ho

There is enough evidence to support the claim.
