Bags of a certain brand of tortilla chips claim to have a net weight of 14 ounces. Net weights actually vary slightly from bag to bag and are Normally distributed with mean μ. A representative of a consumer advocate group wishes to see if there is any evidence that the mean net weight is less than advertised and so intends to test the hypotheses
H0: μ = 14, Ha: μ < 14.
To do this, he selects 16 bags of this brand at random and determines the net weight of each. He finds the sample mean to be = 13.88 and the sample standard deviation to be s = 0.24.
Reference: Ref 164
Based on these data,
A. we would reject H0 at significance level 0.10 but not at 0.05.
B. we would reject H0 at significance level 0.05 but not at 0.025.
C. we would reject H0 at significance level 0.025 but not at 0.01.
D. we would reject H0 at significance level 0.01.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The only significance levels I know of are 0.010 and 0.05.. A?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or how do you solve for the levels?!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Test Statistic: t = (xbarmu)/(s/sqrt(n)) t = (13.8814)/(0.24/sqrt(16)) t = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there are 16 items in the sample, so n = 16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1PValue: p = tcdf(10,2,15) = 0.03197 So you reject H0 if alpha = 0.05 or alpha = 0.10 http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=tcdf%2810%2C2%2C15%29

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you reject H0 if alpha = 0.05 or alpha = 0.10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ic so A is false then. I'm not sure what Wolfram is exactly showing us....?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it's showing the p value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So how do we test the other levels?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The Sig levels, for B, C and D?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh, the pvalue is 0.03197 so it's only significant if alpha is 0.05 or 0.10 so you're rejecting H0 if alpha is 0.05 or 0.10

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but not at 0.025 since 0.03197 is not less than 0.025, so the answer is B
