STAT 409 Fall 2011 Version A Name ANSWERS . Quiz 4 (10 points) Be sure to show all your work; your partial credit might depend on it. No credit will be given without supporting work. 1. Assume that the population of adult elephant weights is normally distributed, and the overall (population) standard deviation of the weights is 450 pounds. A random sample of n = 9 adult elephants had an average weight of 12,240 pounds. We wish to test H 0 : μ = 12,000 pounds vs. H 1 : μ > 12,000 pounds, where μ is the overall average weight of adult elephant. a) (3) Find the p-value of this test. Test Statistic: σ is known. 9 450 000 , 12 240 , 12 X Z σ μ 0 - = - = n = 1.60 . Right – tailed test. p-value

Significance level = α = 0.015 . Test Statistic: σ is known. 9 450 000 , 12 X X Z σ μ-=-= n . Rejection Region: Right - tailed. Reject H if Z > z α = 2.17. 9 450 17 . 2 000 , 12 X ⋅ + > = 12,325.5.
