Unformatted text preview: Find the critical valuefls} fer a left-tailed test for a population variance. sample size n = 23. and level of significance :1 = [LU-25. The number of critical values depends on the type of hs-ptrthesis test. Since this is a left-tailed test there is one critical value. To determine the critical value first determine the degrees of fi'eedtrm and the level of significance. n - 1 = 22 degrees of freedom 0‘. = H.025 You can either use a chi-square disuihutitrn table or techntrltrgv to find the critical value. For this explanation. a chi-square disuih-ulitrn table is used. This is a left-tailed test so the area in the left tail must he 0‘. = 0.025. Since the f-disuihulitrn tahle uses the area to the right of the values the critical value ctrrresptrnds ICI- the area 1 — r1 = 0.9?5. New use a f-disuihulitrn table to find the critical value uith 22 degrees of fi'EEdDfll.

The number of critical values depends on the type of hvpothesis test. Since this is a two-tailed test there are two critical values. To determine the critical values first determine the degrees of fi'eedorn and the level of significance. n- 1 = 16 degrees of fieedorn ot=ELlll You can either use a chi-square dismhudon table or technology; to find the critical value. For this explanation. a chi-square disuihution table is used. 0" 'I . . This is a two-tailed test so the area in each tail must he F = ELDS. Since the f-dism‘huuon table 0‘. uses the area to the right of the values the critical values correspond to the areas F = [LES and l——=D.95. 2 Now use a f-dism‘hution table to End the critical values with 16 degrees of fi’eedorn. _I if =5 19:52 _I Xi =5 25.29:: State whether the standardized test statistic 3.52 allows you to reject the null hypothesis. y? =25.3os Does the standardized test statistic 3:2 allow you to reject the null hypothesis? Reject the null hypothesis because the test statistic is in the rejection region. Use a jig-test to test the claim to {2.8 at the o = [L 1 El significance level using sample statistics s2 = 1.1 and n = 1?.

New equipment is being tested in an attempt to improve quality bf; reducing variation. A simple random sample of 23 quarters is obtained from those manufactured with the new equipment and this sample has a standard deviation of ELEMS. Use a [Hill significance level to test the claim that quarters manufactured with the new equipment have weights with a standard deviation less than 0.069. Does the new equipment appear to be effective in reducing the variation of weights? (a) Write the claim mathematicallv and identify HE and Ha.

HE: G 3: none and H1: 5 6. ELEM? is a left-tailed test. Since this is a left-tailed test there is one critical value. To determine the critical value first determine the degrees of freedom and the level of significance. n- 1 =2? degrees of fieedom :1: [Hill You can either use a chi-square dismbution table or technologv to find the critical value. For this explanation. a chi-square distnbution table is used. Ibis is a left-tailed test so the area in the left tail must be or = 0.01. Since the f-distnbufion table uses the area to the right of the values the critical value corresponds to the area 1 - n = 0.99. Now use a f-dismbution table to find the critical value 'with 27‘ degrees of fieedom. 33:512.?!9 Ihe rejection region for this test is shown to the right. 0: * I~J 12.3.79 I (c) Use the jail-test to find the standardized test statistic. _, _ (n-1)s2 I; _ 2 D" _ [23—1)o_ou2 titular2 ss mass (d) Decide whether to reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis. Compare the standardized test statistic to the critical value. The standardized test statistic is less than or equal to the critical value. Because this is a left-tailed test the null hspothesis will he rejected when 3:2 E j: [n this case. the null hypothesis can he rejected because the standardized test statistic 10.486 is less than the critical value 12.8?9. (e) interpret the decision in the context of the original claim. It can he said that the nevi,r equipment appears to be effective because the null hypothesis is rejected. fl Quarters are currendv minted with weights normallv dismhtned and having a standard devia1ion of 0.061.

Suppose a mutual fimd qualifies as having moderate risk if the standard deviation of its monthly rate of return is less than 3%. A mutual-fimd rating agency randomly selects 30 months and determines the rate of return for a certain firnd. The standard deviation of the rate of return is computed to he 3.03 3%. Is there sufficient evidence to support the claim that the fimd has moderate risk at the ct = [LBS level of significance”?
