Question 2 of 20
1.0/ 1.0 Points
You conduct a hypothesis test and you observe values for the
sample mean and sample standard deviation when n = 25 that do not lead to the
rejection of H0. You calculate a p-value of 0.0667. What will happen to the
p-value if you observe the same sample mean and standard deviation for a sample
size larger than 25?
A.The p – value may
increase or decrease
B.The p – value decreases
C.The p – value stays
the same
D.The p – value
increases

Question 3 of 20
1.0/ 1.0 Points
A severe storm has an average peak wave height of 16.4 feet
for waves hitting the shore. Suppose that a storm is in progress with a severe
storm class rating. Let us say that we want to set up a statistical test to see
if the wave action (i.e., height) is dying down or getting worse. If you wanted
to test the hypothesis that the waves are dying down, what would you use for
the alternate hypothesis? Is the P-value area on the left, right, or on both
sides of the mean?
A.H1: f\$mu f\$ is greater than 16.4 feet; the P-value area
is on both sides of the mean
B.H1: f\$mu f\$ is less than 16.4 feet; the P-value area is
on the left of the mean
C.H1: f\$mu f\$ is greater than 16.4 feet; the P-value area
is on the left of the mean
D.H1: f\$mu f\$ is not equal to 16.4 feet; the P-value area
is on the right of the mean

Question 4 of 20
1.0/ 1.0 Points
A lab technician is
tested for her consistency by taking multiple measurements of cholesterol
levels from the same blood sample. The target accuracy is a variance in
measurements of 1.2 or less. If the lab technician takes 16 measurements and
the variance of the measurements in the sample is 2.2, does this provide enough
evidence to reject the claim that the lab technician’s accuracy is within the
target accuracy?

At the a = .01 level of significance, what is your
conclusion?

A.Cannot determine
B.Do not reject H0. At the f\$alpha f\$ = .01 level of significance there is not
sufficient evidence to suggest that this technician’s true variance is greater
than the target accuracy.
C.Reject H0. At the
f\$alpha f\$ = .01 level of significance,
there is enough evidence to support the claim that this technician’s variance
is larger than the target accuracy.
D.
Reject
H0. At the f\$alpha f\$ = .01 level of significance, there is not
enough evidence to support the claim that this technician’s true variance is
larger than the target accuracy.

Question 5 of 20
1.0/ 1.0 Points
A manufacturer of flashlight batteries took a sample of 13
batteries from a day’s production and used them continuously until they failed
to work. The life lengths of the batteries, in hours, until they failed were:
342, 426, 317, 545, 264, 451, 1049, 631, 512, 266, 492, 562, and 298.

At the .05 level of significance, is there evidence to
suggest that the mean life length of the batteries produced by this
manufacturer is more than 400 hours?
A.No, because the p-value for this test is
equal to .1164
B.Yes, because the
test value 1.257 is less than the critical value 2.179
C.No, because the
test value 1.257 is greater than the critical value 1.115
D.Yes, because the
test value 1.257 is less than the critical value 1.782

Question 6 of 20
1.0/ 1.0 Points
The hypothesis that an analyst is trying to prove is called
the:
A.quality of the
researcher
B.elective hypothesis
C.alternative hypothesis
D.level of
significance

Question 7 of 20
1.0/ 1.0 Points
Results from previous studies showed 79% of all high school
seniors from a certain city plan to attend college after graduation. A random
sample of 200 high school seniors from this city reveals that 162 plan to
attend college. Does this indicate that the percentage has increased from that
of previous studies? Test at the 5% level of significance.

A.Reject H0. There is
enough evidence to support the claim that the proportion of students planning
to go to college is now greater than .79.
B.Do not reject H0. There is not enough
evidence to support the claim that the proportion of students planning to go to
college is greater than .79.
C.More seniors are
going to college
D.Cannot determine

style when it is better than old style

0.0/ 1.0 Points
Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period
or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000),
“E” or “e” (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For
scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker.
Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where
“a” and “b” need to have explicitly stated values.
For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is
valid whereas {9i} is not.

A statistician wishes to test the claim that the standard
deviation of the weights of firemen is greater than 25 pounds. To do so, she
selected a random sample of 30 firemen and found s = 27.2 pounds.

Assuming that the weights of firemen are normally
distributed, if the statistician wanted to test her research hypothesis at the
.05 level of significance, what is the critical value?

been \$550 per student per semester. The Dean of Students believes that the
costs are increasing and that the average is now greater than \$550. He surveys a sample of 40 students and finds

The ABC battery company claims that their batteries last at
least 100 hours, on average. Your experience with their batteries has been
somewhat different, so you decide to conduct a test to see if the company’s
claim is true. You believe that the mean life is actually less than the 100
hours the company claims. You decide to collect data on the average battery
life (in hours) of a random sample of n = 20 batteries. Some of the information
related to the hypothesis test is presented below.

Test of H0: f\$mu geq
f\$ 100 versus H1: f\$mu< f\$ 100 Sample mean 98.5 Std error of mean 0.777 Assuming the life length of batteries is normally distributed, what is the p-value associated with this test? Place your answer, rounded to 3 decimal places in the blank. For example, 0.234 would be a legitimate entry. .034 Question 17 of 20 0.0/ 1.0 Points Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), "E" or "e" (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker. Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where "a" and "b" need to have explicitly stated values. For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not. Suppose a firm that produces light bulbs wants to know whether it can say that its light bulbs typically last more than 1500 hours. Hoping to find support for their claim, the firm collects a random sample of n = 25 light bulbs and records the lifetime (in hours) of each bulb. The information related to the hypothesis test is presented below. Test of H0: f\$mu leq f\$ 1500 versus H1: f\$ mu f\$ >
1500
Sample mean 1509.5
Std error of mean 4.854

Assuming the life length of this type of lightbulb is normally
distributed, what is the p-value associated with this test? Place your answer,
rounded to 3 decimal places in the blank. For example, .123 would be a
legitimate entry. 1.711
