A random sample of 15 observations provided x-bar = 182 and s = 12.
(a) Test H0: μ = 190 versus H1: μ < 190 at α = .05. State your assumption about the population distribution.
(b) What can you say about the P-value of the test statistic calculated in part (a)?
A weight loss program advertises "LOSE 40 POUNDS IN 4 MONTHS." A random sample of n = 25 customers has x-bar =32 pounds lost and s = 12. Test H0:μ = 40 against H1:μ < 40 with α = .05.
Step by step method for testing the hypothesis under 5 step approach is discussed here. Excel template for each problem is also included. This template can be used to obtain the answers of similar problems.
