9.1 a) Yes, because the hypothesis is stated in terms of the parameter of interest, inequality is in the alternative hypothesis, and the value in the null and alternative hypotheses matches. b) No, because the inequality is in the null hypothesis. c) No, because the hypothesis is stated in terms of the statistic rather than the parameter. d) No, the values in the null and alternative hypotheses do not match and both of the hypotheses are equality statements. e) No, because the hypothesis is stated in terms of the statistic rather than the parameter. 9-3 a) b) This result does not provide strong evidence that the standard deviation has not been reduced. There is insufficient evidence to reject the null hypothesis but this is not strong support for the null hypothesis. 9-7 The critical value for the one-sided test is a) α = 0.01, n = 4, from Table III -2.33 = z α and  11.42 b) α = 0.05, n = 4, from Table III -1.65 = z α and  11.59 c) α = 0.01, n = 16, from Table III -2.33 = z α and  11.71 d) α = 0.05, n = 16, from Table III -1.65 = z α and  11.95 9-8 a) β = P(>11.59|µ=11.5) = P(Z>0.36) = 1-0.6406 = 0.3594

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
