C.
d. Suppose we have a lowertailed test Ho: p 2 p4, and Ha: p < pg. if we reject H0 at 5% level ofsigniﬁcance,
which one is the value of the 2 test statistic? 1.4
4.4
2.5 Which of the following is true about the p~value? pvalue is large or small depends on whether its a lowor—tailed test or an uppertailed test. a. b. p—value depends on the level of signiﬁcance. 0. In an upper—tailed test, if the p—value is larger than the level of signiﬁcance, then we reject the
null hypothesis. (1. Whether its a lowertailed test or an uppertailed test, we do not reject the null hypothesis if the p—value is larger than the level of signiﬁcance. Suppose the mean sales volume of an automobile dealership is 15 automobile per month. If the manager of the
dealership wants to conduct a research study to see whether a new bonus plan increases the sales volume, then which of the following are the right hypotheses? a. Ho:u=15 Hippilﬁ
b. Homsls Hazp.>15
c. Ho:p.>i5 Ha:p515
d. Ho:u215 Ha:p.<15 it is known that the mean of a population is 58. A sample of size 50 is taken and the sample mean is computed as
55. You decided to reject the null hypothesis that tr 2 60. a. you have committed a Type I error. b. you have committed a Type II error. e y0u have committed either Type 1 or Type II error. d you have committed neither Type I nor Type 11 error. If the null hypothesis is not rejected at the 2% level of signiﬁcance, it will always be rejected at the 1.5% level of signiﬁcance. will never be rejected at the 3% level of signiﬁcance. may be rejected or not rejected at the 1.5% level of signiﬁcance.

0.60 Which of the following is tr_ug about the p~value? 2199‘s The pvalue is usually prospeciﬁed for a hypothesis test. If the test statistic is negative, the pvalue is also negative. 7 The p—value is always less than or equal to the level of signiﬁcance. We do not reject the null hypothesis when the pvalue is larger than the level of signiﬁcance. Which of the following statements is not true about the level of signiﬁcance for a hypothesis test? 9923"? The level of signiﬁcance is denoted by alpha (0t). If the pvalue is less than the level of signiﬁcance, we reject the null hypothesis. The level of signiﬁcance is the maximum allowable probability of making a Type I error.
The level of signiﬁcance is determined by the value of the test statistic. In a twotailed hypothesis test, zstatistic is computed as 2 = 2.000. The p—value is: 99 53"?” 2.000 Prob(Z < 2)

difference between two population means when the samples are small and the pooled variance is used? a. Both populations have normal distributions b. 0", = 02 = 1 0. Independent random samples are selected from the two populations.
d. All of the above are required assumptions. Exhibit 3 ATM machines must be stocked with enough cash to satisfy customers making withdrawals over an entire
weekend. On the other band, if too much cash is unnecessarily kept in the ATMs, the bank is forgoing the
opportunity of investing the money and earning interest. Suppose that six months back at a particular branch the
population average amount of money withdrawn from ATM machines per customer transaction over the
weekends was $160. Recently a random sample of 16 customers is examined and it is observed that the with
drawals have a sample mean of $175 and a sample standard deviation of $25. The amount of withdrawals per
customer transaction over an weekend can be assumed to be normally distributed. The branch manager wants to
