(Final 2000, Q1) (New ver) A computer company claims that its new model computer sells well, and on the average 45 units were sold per week. A consumer group suspects that the claim is inflated, and hires a statistician to test the claim. Sales data of 16 weeks were available to the statistician, and the average sales of these 16 weeks were 43.5 units per week with a sample SD of 3.0 units per week. (a) Set up the testing problem by identifying the hypothesis (H 0 ) and the alternative (H a ). (b) Suppose the sales of the new computer per week has a normal distribution. Use a small- sample method to test this claim at = 2.5%. (c) Suppose σ is also 3.0, and the sales is normally distributed. Use a large-sample method to test this claim at = 2.5%.
