Homework 5 – solution 1. a) The appropriate hypothesis is H 0 : μ = 250 with the alternative H 1 : μ < 250 with the rejection being a “bad” outcome for the manufacturer. To test it we compute t 0 = 244 . 9 - 250 9 . 5 / 20 = - 2 . 40 . Since - 2 . 40 > - t 0 . 01 , 19 = - 2 . 539, the null hypothesis cannot be rejected, and the customer will buy the bottles. b) If the customer is new, the appropriate hypothesis is H 0 : μ = 250 with the alternative H 1 : μ > 250 with the rejection being a “good” outcome for the manufacturer. To test it we compute t 0 = 244 . 9 - 250 9 . 5 / 20 = - 2 . 40 . Since - 2 . 40 < t 0 . 01 , 19 = 2 . 539, the null hypothesis cannot be rejected, and the customer will not buy the bottles. c) Using the site mentioned in the homework, we obtain, for the case in a), P = Pr( X < - 2 . 40) = Pr( X > 2 . 40) = 0 . 013, and for the case in b), P = Pr( X > - 2 . 40) = 0 . 987. 2. For the hypothesis in 1a, the appropriate CI is the corresponding upper
