ISOM111 Business Statistics (Fall 2010) Tutorial Exercise 6 Examples for Procedures of Testing Hypotheses about Population Mean μ X Suppose the director of manufacturing at a clothing factory needs to determine whether a new machine is producing a particular type of cloth according to the manufacturer’s speci f cations, which indicate that the cloth should have a mean breaking strength of 70 pounds and a standard deviation of 3.5 pounds. A sample of 49 pieces reveals a sample mean of 71.5 pounds. [Part A] (Ai) Is there any evidence showing that the machine manufactures the cloth with a higher average breaking strength than the manufacturer’s speci f cations at 5% signi f cance level? State the null and alternative hypotheses: State α : Critical value: Decision Rule: Test Statistics: Decision: Conclusion: (Aii) Compute the probability of getting a sample mean strength of 49 pieces of cloth that is
