Hypothesis Testing

Critical value approach, p- value approach for sample

Null and Alternative Hypothesis for Filling Soft Drink Bottles

A soft drink filling machine, when in perfect adjustment, fills the bottles with 12 oz. of soft drink.

See attached files. Using the methods in Section 8.4, test the hypothesis (± = 0.05) that the population proportions of red and brown are equal (pred = pbrown). You are testing if their proportions are equal to one another, NOT if they are equal to one another AND equal to 13%. NOTE: These are NOT independent samples, but

At what sigma level is this process operating?

The Wall Street Journal reported on February 15, 2000, that about 750,000 airplane components are manufactured, machined, or assembled for Boeing Co. by workers from the Seattle Lighthouse for the Blind.
