The sum of the positive signed ranks is S 25. n 7. Since the alternate hypothesis is of the form μ μ 0 , the P -value is the area under the signed rank probability mass function corresponding to S 25. From the signed-rank table, P 0 0391. We can conclude that the mean concentration is greater than 14 g/L.

Since the alternate hypothesis is of the form μ μ , the P-value is the area under the signed rank probability mass function corresponding to S 7. From the signed-rank table, P 1094. We cannot conclude that the mean concentration is less than 30 g/L. (c) The signed ranks are Signed x x 18 Rank 20 2 1 21 3 2 24 6 3 25 7 4 5 13 5 32 14 6 43 25 7...
