A consumer watchdog group suspects that a yogurt that is advertised to be 98% fat free has in fact a higher mean fat content. The group will take action against the company if it can substantiate its suspicion with factual data. For this purpose, the group takes a sample of 25 yogurt cups (each containing 170 grams) and measured the fat contents. If the company’s claim is correct, then the mean fat content should be no more than 2%, i.e., 3.4 grams. Also suppose that σ of the fat contents is .5 grams. a. Set up the hypotheses to be tested. : 3.4 : 3.4 a H versus H μ μ b. Suppose that the mean fat content for 25 sample cups was 3.6 grams.

According to a study, its distribution approximates a normal distribution with mean of 280 days and standard deviation of 25 days. Suppose the length of a pregnancy of a woman is independent of the length of another pregnancy of the same woman at a different time....
