Unformatted text preview: 6.18 (a) (b) For 90% confidence, za/2 = Z.05 = 1.645. Then the 90% cr is 6 16.3 ± 1.645 x ~ = [14.33,18.27]. y25 For 99% confidence, za/2 = Z.005 = 2.576. Then the 99% cr is 6 16.3 ± 2.576 x ~ = [13.21,19.39]. y25 (b) lfn were increased to 100, the width ofthe cr would decrease by a factor of .)100/25 = 2. 6.15 (a) A 95% cr for J1. = 1l0.5 ± 1.96 x ~ = [108.64, 112.36]. Since this interval falls completely within the specification limits of [107.5,1l2.5], we can conclude that the specifications are met. (b) Only the lower specific limit is critical, i.e., we want J1. ~ 107.5 volts. Calculate the lower one-sided 95% confidence bound: u 3 J1. ~ x- Za . ~ = 100.5 - 1.645 x r;n = 108.94. . yn y10 Since this exceeds 107.5, the lower specification limit is met. (c) Similarly if we want J1. ::::; 112.5, calculate the upper one-sided 95% confidence bound: u 3 J1. ::::; x + ZQ ..;n = 1l0.5 + 1.645 x V15 = 112.06. Since this is smaller than 112.5, the upper specification limit is met. 6.16 (l)n-l Conf. Level: P(Xmin ::::; p, ::::; Xmax) = 1 - "2 For n = 10, (1) 10-1 Conf.

(b) Ho : p = 0.05 VS. HI : p < 0.05, where p is the true proportion of overdue books. (c) Ho: p = 0.40 vs. HI : p < 0.40, where p is the true scrap rate.

Ho : J1. = 10,000 vs. HI : J1. < 10,000, where J1. is the mean shear strength.

(b) Assuming it is more serious to not release an effective drug, the hypotheses ale": is not effective vs. HI : It is effective. . (c) Because of potential side effects, it is more important to reduce the chance r1 an inequivalent drug on the market. Then the hypotheses are Ho : It is not vs. HI : It is equivalent.
