(28 pts.) Industries such as refineries, steel mills, and food processing plants release wastewater into the environment. This wastewater should be neutralized before it is released. Treated wastewater pH values are recorded for a sample from an industry using a particular treatment process‘: 6.2, 6.5, 7.6, 7.7, 7.0, 7.0, 7.2, 6.8, 7.5, 8.1, 7.1, 7.0, 7.1, 7.8, 8.5 (There are 15 observations with a sample average of 7.273 and a sample standard deviation of 0.602.) Based upon these data, is there evidence that the treatment process does not yield an average pH of 7 as desired? Conduct the appropriate test by answering the questions below: a. State the null and alternative hypotheses for this test ' Ho: M37 Ha= A167 where ,u is the true mean treated wastewater pH. b. Draw the density curve the test statistic follows if the null hypothesis is true. Correctly add, along the hoiizontal axis, the labels "Accept Ho" and "Reject Ho" regions. Label the horizontal axis with the numerical value(s) that separate the accept and reject regions. _ ¢L g 0015 - W" ’ “ 43H- pnéh’ 0" - '0” a... q I t W .. .H MJW'M 5 fl-é-‘J'ecr Ho . . . .

Suppose I take a sample of 50 light bulbs and they last an average of 1230 hours with standard deviation of 80 hours. I Is the true mean duration of the bulbs less than 1250 hours?

Devor, Chang, and Sutherland (1992) examined a process for manufacturing electrical resistors2 that have a nominal resistance of 100 ohms with a specification of i20hms. Suppose management has expressed a concern that the true proportion of resistors with resistances outside the specifications has increased from the historical level of 10%. A random sample of 180 resistors yielded 46 with resistances outside the specifications. Conduct the appropriate test by answering the questions below: a.
