Topic: Hypothesis testing 98. It is estimated that the average person in the US uses 123 gallons of water per day. Some
environmentalists believe this figure is too high and conducted a survey of 40 randomly
selected Americans. They find a mean of 113.03 gallons and a standard deviation of 25.99
gallons. Calculate the appropriate test statistic to test the hypotheses.

Topic: Hypothesis testing 100. A manufacturer of salad dressings uses machines to dispense liquid ingredients into
bottles that move along a filling line. The machine that dispenses dressing is working properly
when 8 ounces are dispensed. The standard deviation of the process is 0.15 ounces. A sample
of 48 bottles is selected periodically, and the filling line is stopped if there is evidence that the
mean amount dispensed is different from 8 ounces. Suppose that the mean amount dispensed
in a particular sample of 48 bottles is 7.983 ounces. Calculate the test statistic.

of 48 bottles is selected periodically, and the filling line is stopped if there is evidence that the

of 48 bottles is selected periodically, and the filling line is stopped if there is evidence that the
mean amount dispensed is different from 8 ounces. Suppose that the mean amount dispensed
in a particular sample of 48 bottles is 7.983 ounces. Calculate a confidence interval to test the
hypotheses at α = .05.

Topic: Hypothesis testing 1795 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 103. The manager of a grocery store wants to determine whether the amount of water
contained in 1 gallon bottle purchased from a nationally known manufacturer actually average
1 gallon. It is known from the manufacturer's specifications that the standard deviation of the
amount of water is equal to 0.02 gallon. A random sample of 32 bottles is selected, and the
mean amount of water per 1 gallon can is found to be 0.995 gallon. Calculate the test statistic
