more than twice the average price of a movie ticket in New York City. An economist interested in differences in the economies of Japan and United States wishes to test whether the average price of a movie ticket in Tokyo exceeds the average movie ticket in New York City by more than \$7. A random sample from both cities resulted in the following information. Tokyo (1) New York City (2 ) \$ 23 \$ 14 s \$ 5 \$ 3 n 40 32 1. To test the claim that the average price of a movie ticket in Tokyo is more than seven dollars more expensive than NYC’s, which of the following would be appropriate for the alternative hypothesis? A. μ 1 – μ 2 > \$7 B. μ 1 μ 2 < \$7 C. μ 1 μ 2 = \$7 D. μ 1 μ 2 \$7 E. μ 1 μ 2 > \$7 2. What is the calculated value of the appropriate test statistic for the test in question #1? A. Z* = 1.90 B. Z* = 4.28 C. t* = 2.21 D. Z* = 2.10 E. t* = 3.20 3. Assuming the calculated value of the test statistic in question #2 is 2.01 , what is the p-value of the test? A. .01 < p < .025 B. p = .0222 C. p = .0111 D. p = .0444 E. p = .4778
Use the information given below to answer the next two questions. The production manager in a chemical plant knows that the time for a certain product line to become stable after being stopped for machine adjustments is normally distributed. He uses a sample of 10 stoppages to determine a 90% confidence interval for the average warm-up period to be 8.3 to 9.4 minutes. The firm’s cost accountant would like to answer the following question: Is there sufficient evidence, at the 10% significance level, to indicate that the average warm-up period is different from 8 minutes? 4. What should be the decision and conclusion based on the confidence interval? A. reject the null hypothesis, conclude that there is evidence the average warm-up period is equal to 8 minutes. B. Fail to reject the null hypothesis, conclude that there is insufficient evidence the average warm-up period is not equal to 8 minutes. C. Fail to reject the null hypothesis, conclude that there is insufficient evidence the average warm-up period is equal to 8 minutes.
