b) Remember to express your answer as a whole number.
#1) The mean yield of corn in the US is about 120 bushels per acre.
A survey of 40 farmers this
year gives a sample mean yield of
x
= 123.8 bushels per acre.
We want to know whether this is
good evidence that the national mean this year is not 120 bushels per acre.
Assume that the
farmers surveyed are an SRS from the population of all commercial corn growers and that the
standard deviation of the yield in this population is σ = 10 bushels per acre.
We want to test:
H
0
:
μ = 120
H
a
:
μ
≠
120
Give the z test statistic and its Pvalue.
Round your answers to four decimal places.
Do you
reject H
0
at the 5% level?
#2) Statistics can decide the authorship of literary works.
Sonnets by a certain Elizabethan poet
are known to contain an average of μ = 6.9 new words (words not used in the poet’s other works).
