1.0 Points 
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. Compute the z or t value of the sample test statistic.
A.z = 1.645 

B.t = 1.916 

C.z = 1.916 

D.t = 1.916

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. = 30.58

B.The p – value decreases 

C.The p – value increases

A manufacturer of flashlight batteries took a sample of 13 batteries from a day’s production and used them continuously until they failed to work. The life lengths of the batteries, in hours, until they failed were: 342, 426, 317, 545, 264, 451, 1049, 631, 512, 266, 492, 562, and 298.
At the .05 level of significance, is there evidence to suggest that the mean life length of the batteries produced by this manufacturer is more than 400 hours?
A.No, because the test value 1.257 is greater than the critical value 1.115 

B.Yes, because the test value 1.257 is less than the critical value 2.179 

C.No, because the pvalue for this test is equal to .1164 

D.Yes, because the test value 1.257 is less than the critical value 1.782

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 statistician wishes to test the claim that the standard deviation of the weights of firemen is greater than 25 pounds. To do so, she selected a random sample of 20 firemen and found s = 27.2 pounds. Assuming that the weights of firemen are normally distributed, to test her research hypothesis the statistician would use a chisquare test. In that case, what is the computed test value? Place your answer, rounded to 3 decimal places, in the blank. For example, 23.456 would be a legitimate entry.

Your experience with their batteries has been somewhat different, so you decide to conduct a test to see if the company’s claim is true. You believe that the mean life is actually less than the 100 hours the company claims. You decide to collect data on the average battery life (in hours) of a random sample of n = 20 batteries. Some of the information related to the hypothesis test is presented below. 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, if you wish to conduct this test using a .05 level of significance, what is the critical value that you should use?

The CEO of a software company is committed to expanding the proportion of highly qualified women in the organization’s staff of salespersons. He believes that the proportion of women in similar sales positions across the country is less than 45%. Hoping to find support for his belief, he directs you to test H0: p .45 vs H1: p < .45. In doing so, you collect a random sample of 50 salespersons employed by his company, which is thought to be representative of sales staffs of competing organizations in the industry. The collected random sample of size 50 showed that only 18 were women. What is the smallest level of significance at which you could reject the null in favor of the alternative hypothesis? Place your answer, rounded to 4 decimal places, in the blank. For example, 0.1234 would be a legitimate entry.
