Question 5 of 40

2.5 Points

In 1990, the average duration of long-distance telephone calls originating in one town was 9.3 minutes.

Ho: µ = 9.3 minutes H a : µ ¹ 9.3 minutes

D.

Ho: µ ¹ 9.3 minutes H a : µ = 9.3 minutes

Question 6 of 40

2.5 Points

In the past, the mean running time for a certain type of flashlight battery has been 9.8 hours. The manufacturer has introduced a change in the production method and wants to perform a hypothesis test to determine whether the mean running time has increased as a result. The hypotheses are:

H0 : µ = 9.8 hours

Ha : µ > 9.8 hours

Suppose that the results of the sampling lead to rejection of the null hypothesis. Classify that conclusion as a Type I error, a Type II error, or a correct decision, if in fact the mean running time has not increased.

A. Type I error

B. Type II error

C. Correct decision

D. Can not be determined from this information

Question 7 of 40

2.5 Points

A supplier of DVDs claims that no more than 1% of the DVDs are defective. In a random sample of 600 DVDs, it is found that 3% are defective, but the supplier claims that this is only a sample fluctuation. At the 0.01 level of significance, test the supplier’s claim that no more than 1% are defective.

A. Do not reject the null hypothesis and conclude that there is evidence to support the claim that more than 1% of the DVDs are defective.

B. Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that there is insufficient evidence to support the claim that more than 1% of the DVDs are defective.

C. Do not reject the null hypothesis and conclude that there is insufficient evidence to support the claim that more than 1% of the DVDs are defective.

D. Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that there is sufficient evidence to support the claim that more than 1% of the DVDs are defective.

Question 8 of 40

2.5 Points

A consumer group claims that the mean running time for a certain type of flashlight battery is not the same as the manufacturer’s claims. Determine the null and alternative hypotheses for the test described.

A.

D.

H0: µ ¹ Manufacturer’s claims Ha: µ = Manufacturer’s claims

B. 5%

C. 2.5%

D. 95%

Question 10 of 40

2.5 Points

A poll of 1,068 adult Americans reveals that 52% of the voters surveyed prefer the Democratic candidate for the presidency. At the 0.05 significance level, test the claim that more than half of all voters prefer the Democrat.

A. Reject the null hypothesis. Conclude that there is insufficient evidence that more than half of all voters prefer Democrats.

B. Do not reject the null hypothesis. Conclude that there is sufficient evidence that more than half of all voters prefer Democrats.

C. Reject the null hypothesis. Conclude that there is sufficient evidence that more than half of all voters prefer Democrats.

D. Do not reject the null hypothesis. Conclude that there is insufficient evidence that more than half of all voters prefer Democrats.

Question#11

A researcher claims that the amounts of acetaminophen in a certain brand of cold tablets have a mean different from the 600 mg claimed by the manufacturer. Test this claim at the 0.02 level of significance. The mean acetaminophen content for a random sample of n = 41 tablets is 603.3 mg. Assume that the population standard deviation is 4.9 mg.

A. Since the test statistic is greater than the critical z, there is sufficient evidence to accept the null hypothesis and to support the claim that the mean content of acetaminophen is 600 mg.

B. Since the test statistic is greater than the critical z, there is sufficient evidence to reject the null hypothesis and to support the claim that the mean content of acetaminophen is not 600 mg.

C. Since the test statistic is less than the critical z, there is sufficient evidence to reject the null hypothesis and to support the claim that the mean content of acetaminophen is not 600 mg.

D. Since the test statistic is greater than the critical z, there is insufficient evidence to reject the null hypothesis and to support the claim that the mean content of acetaminophen is not 600

Question 12 of 40

B.

H0: p = 0.001 Ha: p 0.001 Ha: p = 0.001

D.

H0: p months. Assume that the population standard deviation is 7 months. Test the null hypothesis that µ = 18.7 at the 0.05 significance level.

A.

Do not reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the claim that the mean is different from 18.7 months is supported.

B.

Do not reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the claim that the mean is different from 18.7 months cannot be supported.

C.

Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the claim that the mean is different from 18.7 months is supported.

D.

Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the claim that the mean is different from 18.7 months cannot be supported.

Question 14 of 40

2.5 Points

In the past, the mean running time for a certain type of flashlight battery has been 8.0 hours. The manufacturer has introduced a change in the production method and wants to perform a hypothesis test to determine whether the mean running time has increased as a result. The hypotheses are:
