Hypothesis Testing

Test Random Sample of 100 Observers from a Binomial Population

Suppose a random sample of 100 observers from a binomial population gives a value of p* = .63 and you wish to test the null hypothesis that the population parameter p is equal to .70 against the alternative hypothesis that p is less than .70. a) Noting that p* = .63, what does your intuition tell you? Does the value of p* ap

PC Manufacturer: Hypothesis Test for Proportion vs. Hypothesized Value

A PC manufacturer claims that no more than 2% of their machines are defective. In a random sample of 100 machines, it is found that 5% are defective. The manufacturer claims this is a fluke of the sample. At a .01 level of significance, test the manufacture's claim, and explain your answer. MegaStat Output Hypothesis

Claim of the True Proportion of Blue M&Ms Candies

See attached file. Use the M&Ms data to complete this assignment. You will be using the methods of 7.4 for the color proportions and 7.2 for the mean number of candies per bag. For the Bonus you will be using the methods of 7.5. Be sure to state clear hypotheses, test statistic values, critical value or p-value, decision

15 Multiple Choice Statistics questions: Hypothesis, sample means, criticial value

13) The owner of a bottling company is considering buying a new bottling machine. He has been testing two different machines that are being considered. After collecting 300 samples from each machine over several weeks, he was able to conduct a two sample z test.<p>He decided to utilize a 0.05 significant level for the test. The

Stating the Hypothesis in Five Steps

Please prepare each answer in 5 steps. Exercises 9.54: Faced with rising fax costs, a firm issued a guideline that transmissions of 10 pages or more should be sent by 2-day mail instead. Exceptions are allowed, but they want the average to be 10 or below. The firm examined 35 randomly chosen fax transmissions during the next

Hypothesis Test

A soft drink filling machine, when in perfect adjustment, fills the bottles with 12 ounces of soft drink. A random sample of 25 bottles is selected, and the contents are measured. The sample yielded a mean content of 11.88 ounces, with a standard deviation of 0.24 ounces. Use a 0.05 level of significance and test to see if the

Statistics Hypothesis test fo Tammy Corporation mean weekly units of production

Doctors and House Calls in Memphis and Atlanta

Among a sample of 50 M.D.s (medical doctors) in the city of Memphis, Tennessee, ten indicated they make house calls; while among a sample of 100 M.D.s in Atlanta, Georgia, 18 said they make house calls. Determine a 95% interval estimate for the difference between the proportion of doctors who make house calls in the two cities.

Statistics testing for mean acceleration

Significance Level: Hypothesis testing is the basis of inferential statistics. Statisticians are always coming up with new tests and testing new characteristics of population parameters. One of the simplest tests that currently exist is the one-sample test for means. A random sample is drawn. If the population variance is

Experimental bumper to reduce damage in low-speed collisions: Reduce downtime?

An experimental bumper was designed to reduce damage in low-speed collisions. This bumper was installed on an experimental group of vans in a large fleet, but not on a control group. At the end of a trial period, accident data showed 12 repair incidents for the experimental group and 9 repair incidents for the control group.

Compute 3 treatment solutions for SS

Treatments _____I______II______III n = 10 n = 10 n =10 M = 2 M = 3 M = 7 T = 20 T = 30 T =70 ______________________ A. How to compute SS for the set of 3 treatment means? B. Using result from A, how to compute n (SSmean)? C. Then, how to compute SS between with the computational formu

Hypothesis Samples: Example Questions

A hypothesis can be rejected at one significance level, but not rejected at another significant level for the same set of samples. The level of significance reflects how much error we can tolerate in the test conclusion. For example, when we buy a 4,000-square-feet house, do you think the measurement is really exact 4,000 square

Hypothesis testing: Accidents at intersections example

The local municipality claims that since the percentage of intersections that had an accident last year decreased from the prior year, the city is now safer. What are the hypotheses for this situation? Is the city really safer? Should be in the form of the null hypothesis (H0), and the alternative hypothesis (H1).
