An executive of a large airline company selects a sample of 36 planes and finds the average age of the planes is 11.8 years. The standard deviation of the sample is 2.7 years. At = 0.01 , can it be concluded that the average age of the planes in his Company is less than the national average? C . V . = 2.33 z = X s n = 11.8 14 2.7 36 = 4.89 2.33 4.89 H : 14 H 1 : < 14(claim) Reject the null hypothesis. There is enough evidence to support the claim that the average age of the planes in the executives airline is less than national average. C . V . = 2.33 H : 14 H 1 : < 14(claim) z = X s n = 11.8 14 2.7 36 = 4.89 Decision Rule: Reject H if -4.89 < -2.33 Reject Ho Section 8- 3 Chapter 8 Hypothesis Testing The average one-year-old (both sexes) is 29 inches tall. A random sample of 30 one-year-olds in a large day care franchise resulted in the following heights. At = 0.05 , can it be concluded that the average height differs from 29 inches? 2 5 32 35 25 30 26. 5 26 25.5 29. 5 32 3 28. 5 30 32 28 31. 5 29 29.5 30 34 2 9 32 27 28 33 28 27 32 29 29. 5 1.96 0 1.96 C .

There is not enough evidence to support the claim that the average height differs from 29 inches. C .

The standard deviation of the sample was $3.70 . At = 0.02 , can it be concluded that the average amount spent at a local mall is not equal to the national average of $24.44 . = 2.28 = 22.97 24.44 3.70 33 C.V. = 2.33 2.33 2.33 H : = $24.44 H : $24.44 (claim) 1 n = 33 X = $22.97 s = $3.70 s = $3....
