Unformatted text preview: So the answer to the problem is Yes. Problem 7 The Mars Candy Co. claims that since the introduction of blue as a color for M&M’s 15% of all M&M’s produced are blue. In a randomly collected sample of 80 M&M’s, only 8 were blue. Is this strong evidence at 5% level to claim that the true proportion of all M&M’s that are blue is less than 15%? Tick the correct answer: q༇  Yes q༇  No q༇  Don’t have suf_icient data to conduct a correct statistical test H A : p < 0.15 Step 1: write the alternative hypothesis correctly and recognize that it’s a 1- sided less than alternative. Step2: recognize that it will be a z test for proportion Step 3: check if conditions for the tests are met. If yes proceed with the tests else choose ‘need more data’ option. np0 = 80*0.15=12 and n(1- p0)=80*0.85=68. So we are good J༄ Step 4: Critical value at 5% level= - 1.645 (from normal table values). Calculate: z= ˆ p − p0 = p0 (1 − p0 ) n 8 / 80 − 0.15 = −1.252 0.15(1 − 0.15) 80 Step5: Fail to null...
