ﬁne wine is the sugar content. Basically, the wine maker can predict the ﬁnal alcohol
content of the wine by dividing the sugar content of the grapes by 2. A Napa Valley winery pays a premium to its wine grow
ers if they can deliver shipment with true mean alcohol
contents of 26%. The winery tests grapes from ﬁve different, randomly
selected locations in the shipment and determines the ‘ sugar content at each location. What is an appropriate method for determining if the
wine growers deserves a premium? In our case, use a = .05. Thus; we shall reject the null hypothesis if » lti > t1£~1.0/2

Since It] <‘2.777. we fail to reject H0. Therefore we have insufficient evidence to show that the
true sugar content is not 26%. ' Therefore, we should pay the grower the premium.
Typically, we would want to check our assumptions.
