4. /16 / 100 1. (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

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? Conduct the appropriate test by answering the

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. State the null and alternative hypotheses for this test
