o Chapter Exercises 9.54 Faced with rising fax costs, a firm issued a guideline that transmissions of 10 pages or more should be sent by 2-day mail instead. Exceptions are allowed, but they want the average to be 10 or below. The firm examined 35 randomly chosen fax transmissions during the next year, yielding a sample mean of 14.44 with a standard deviation of 4.45 pages. (a) At the .01 level of significance, is the true mean greater than 10? H 0 = 10 H 1 > 10 a = .01 T = (14.44-10) / (4.45 / sqrt(35)) = 5.903 Dof = 34 a = .01 CV = 2.33 Yes the true mean is greater than 10. (b) Use Excel to find the right-tail p-value. X = 5.903 Dof = n – 1 = 35 – 1 = 34 Tails = 1 o Chapter Exercises 9.56 A coin was flipped 60 times and came up heads 38 times. (a) At the .10 level of significance, is the coin biased toward heads? Show your decision rule and calculations. Heads = 38/60 = 19/30 H 0 : p = 0.5 H 1 : p > 0.5 Z = (0.633 - 0.5) / sqrt(.5 x .5 / 60) = 2.066 (b) Calculate a p -value and interpret it. =1-NORMDIST(0.6333,0.5,SQRT(0.5*0.5/60),1) P = 0.019 It is safe to say that the coin is biased to heads.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
