Given this information, provide the conclusion that would be reached for each of the following hypothesis tests at the ! =0.10 level: a. H0:! =170 versus H1:! b. H0:! =110 versus H1:! c. H0:! =130 versus H1:! d. H0:! =200 versus H1:! ≠170 ≠110 ≠130 ≠200 5 PROBLEM # 8.14 Under what circumstances should the t ­statistic be used in carrying out a hypothesis test for the population mean? PROBLEM # 8.15 For a simple random sample of 40 items, ! =25.9 and s=4.2. At the 0.01 level of significance, test H0:! =24.0 versus H1:! ≠24.0 PROBLEM # 8.16 For a simple random sample of 15 items from a population that is approximately normally distributed, ! =82.0 and s=20.5.

Assume that a sample of 38 people from a North Carolina city consumed a mean of 1.84 cups of coffee per day, with a standard deviation of 0.85 cups. In a two ­tail test at the 0.05 level, could the residents of this city be said to be significantly different from their counterparts across the nation?
