In an article appearing in Today’s Health a writer states that the average number of calories in a serving of popcorn is 75. To determine if the average number of calories in a serving of popcorn is different from 75, a nutritionist selected a random sample of 20 servings of popcorn and computed the sample mean number of calories per serving to be 78 with a sample standard deviation of 7. State the null and alternative hypotheses.

A lab technician is tested for her consistency by taking multiple measurements of cholesterol levels from the same blood sample. The target accuracy is a variance in measurements of 1.2 or less. If the lab technician takes 16 measurements and the variance of the measurements in the sample is 2.2, does this provide enough evidence to reject the claim that the lab technician’s accuracy is within the target accuracy?
Compute the value of the appropriate test statistic.

A lab technician is tested for her consistency by taking multiple measurements of cholesterol levels from the same blood sample. The target accuracy is a variance in measurements of 1.2 or less. If the lab technician takes 16 measurements and the variance of the measurements in the sample is 2.2, does this provide enough evidence to reject the claim that the lab technician’s accuracy is within the target accuracy? At the = .01 level of significance, what is your conclusion?
A.Reject H0. At the = .01 level of significance, there is enough evidence to support the claim that this technician’s variance is larger than the target accuracy. 

B.Do not reject H0. At the = .01 level of significance there is not sufficient evidence to suggest that this technician’s true variance is greater than the target accuracy. 

C.Cannot determine 

D.
Reject H0. At the = .01 level of significance, there is not enough evidence to support the claim that this technician’s true variance is larger than the target accuracy.

Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), “E” or “e” (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker. Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where “a” and “b” need to have explicitly stated values. For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not. A survey determines that mint chocolate chip is the favorite ice cream flavor of 6% of consumers. An ice cream shop determines that of 260 customers, 20 customers stated their preference for mint chocolate chip. Find the Pvalue that would be used to determine if the percentage of customers who prefer mint chocolate chip ice has increased at a 5% level of significance. Pvalue: Round your answer to four decimal places as necessary.

A medical doctor wishes to test the claim that the standard deviation of the systolic blood pressure of deep sea divers is greater than 450. To do so, she selected a random sample of 25 divers and found s = 468. Assuming that the systolic blood pressures of deep sea divers are normally distributed, if the doctor wanted to test her research hypothesis at the .01 level of significance, what is the critical value? Place your answer, rounded to 3 decimal places, in the blank. For example, 34.567 would be a legitimate entry.

Test of H0: = 100 versus H1: 100 Sample mean 98.5 Std error of mean 0.777 Assuming the life length of batteries is normally distributed, what is the pvalue associated with this test?
