Unformatted text preview: APPM 4/5570 Solutions to Problems from Section 8.2 (continued) 25. n = 16, normal, σ = 0 . 3, x = 5 . 25 Everything will be done with Z ’s. a. Step One: Hypotheses: H : μ = 5 . 5 H a : μ 6 = 5 . 5 Step Two: The Test Statistic Z = X μ σ/ √ n = 5 . 25 5 . 5 . 3 / 4 ≈  3 . 33 Step Three: The Rejection Region The rejection region is twotailed and located on both the high and low ends of the Z curve, above z α/ 2 and below z α/ 2 . We are not given an α , so we could “default” to α = 0 . 05, which makes the cutoffs 1 . 645 and 1 . 645. In this case, we would reject H , in favor of H a . Or, we could say that, since the test statistic is obviously quite extreme for a Zstatistic, we are likely to be in the rejection region for most “reasonable” or “typical” values of α . Step Four: Conclusion At 0 . 05 level of significance and most other reasonable levels, we will reject H in favor of H a . This data strongly suggests that the true average percentage of SiO...
