Marks) A firm is studying the production times for two production methods. The firm is satisfied with production method A and is prepared to continue using it if the mean delivery time is the same as or less than for production method B. However, if the firm finds that the mean delivery time for method B is less than that for

From a population of cereal boxes marked "12 ounces," a sample of 16 boxes is selected and the contents of each box weighed. The sample revealed a mean of 11.7 ounces with a standard deviation of 0.8. Test to see if the mean of the population is at least 12 ounces. Use a 0.05 level of significance.

A recent study focused on the number of times men and women who live alone buy take-out dinner in a month. The information is summarized below. Statistic Men Women Sample mean 24.51 22.69 Population standard deviation 4.48 3.86 Sample size 35

A recent article in The Wall Street Journal reported that the 30-year mortgage rate is now less than 6 percent. A sample of eight small banks in the Midwest revealed the following 30-year rates (in percent): 4.8 5.3 6.5 4.8 6.1 5.8 6.2 5.6 At the .01 significance level, can we conclude that the 30-year mortgage rate for s

Dole Pineapple, Inc., is concerned that the 16-ounce can of sliced pineapple is being overfilled. Assume the standard deviation of the process is .03 ounces. The quality control department took a random sample of 50 cans and found that the arithmetic mean weight was 16.05 ounces. At the 5 percent level of significance, can we c

A new weight-watching company, Weight Reducers International, advertises that those who join will lose, on the average, 10 pounds the first two weeks with a standard deviation of 2.8 pounds. A random sample of 50 people who joined the new weight reduction program revealed the mean loss to be 9 pounds. At the .05 level of signifi

Evolutionary theories often emphasize that humans have adapted to their physical environment. One such theory hypothesizes that people should spontaneously follow a 24-hour cycle of sleeping and waking-even if they are not exposed to the usual pattern of sunlight. To test this notion, eight paid volunteers were placed (individua

Grand Strand Family Medical Center is specifically set up to treat minor medical emergencies for visitors to the Myrtle Beach area. There are two facilities, one in the Little River Area and the other in Murrells Inlet. The Quality Assurance Department wishes to compare the mean waiting time for patients at the two locations.

The mean (m) number of employee absences in company X is 6 days annually, according to previous studies conducted by the Human Resources Department. Five years have passed without determining whether this mean continues to be the same. Therefore, the company's industrial psychologist selects a sample of 9 employees and deter

Using 19 observations on each variable, a computer program generated the following multiple regression model: y = 43.7 - 1.83x_1 - 4.25x_2 If the standard errors of the coefficients of the independent variables are, respectively, 1.24 and 2.04, can you conclude that the independent variable is needed in the regression m

Two new york designs are under consideration for possible adoption in an assembly plant. A time study is conducted with 10 workers using design 1, and 12 workers using design 2. The means and standard deviation of their assembly times in minutes are below. Design 1 Design 2 Mean 78.3 minute

When a researcher has two samples with two means, one of the assumptions for two samples is independence of between the two samples. What does this mean? What happens if the independence assumption is violated?

The Speedy Oil Change Company advertised a 15-minute wait for an oil change. A sample of 23 oil changes showed a mean time of 16.5 minutes and a standard deviation of 4.3 minutes. At the 5% level of significance, is there evidence that the mean time for an oil change is different from 15 minutes? Assume the population is approxi

1. Outline the difference between the t test for independent groups and the t test for matched groups. 2. A researcher computed the F ratio for a four-group experiment.The computed F is 4.86. The degrees of freedom are 3 for the numerator and 16 for the denominator. a. Is the computed value of f significant at p <.05? Exp

Past records suggest that the mean annual income,m1 , of teachers in state of Connecticut is less than or equal to the mean annual income,m2 , of teachers in California. In a current study, a random sample of 25 teachers from Connecticut and an independent random sample of 25 teachers from California have been asked to report t

You want to compare differences in sales dollars (DV) for 43 employees before and after they have attended a motivational seminar. Since comparing differences is the goal, I presume that you are going to compare the means of a pre-post test of the 43 employees. Okay, I was going to say that this is the answer but lets be hon

Suppose that we want to estimate the mean cholesterol level in adults aged or more. We choose a random sample of such levels. The random sample we choose has a mean of mg/dL and a standard deviation of mg/dL. For each of the following sampling scenarios, determine which test statistic is appropriate to use when making inferen
