Unformatted text preview: sample of 25 units of product X, the average weight is 102 lbs., and
the sample standard deviation is 10 lbs. We would like to decide if there is enough evidence
to establish that the average weight for the population of product X is greater than 100 lbs.
Assume the population is normally distributed. At α = .01, we can reject the null hypothesis.
True False 35. A recent study conducted by the state government attempts to determine whether the
voting public supports further increase in cigarette taxes. The opinion poll recently sampled
1500 voting age citizens. 1020 of the sampled citizens were in favor of an increase in cigarette
taxes. The state government would like to decide if there is enough evidence to establish
whether the proportion of citizens supporting an increase in cigarette taxes is significantly
greater than .66. At α = .10, we would fail to reject H0.
True False 36. A recent study conducted by the state government attempts to determine whether the
voting public supports further increase in cigarette taxes. The opinion poll recently sampled
1500 voting age citizens. 1020 of the sampled citizens were in favor of an increase in cigarette
taxes. The state government would like to decide if there is enough evidence to establish
whether the proportion of citizens supporting an increase in cigarette taxes is significantly
greater than .66. At α = .05, we would reject the null hypothesis.
True False 1718 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 37. A microwave manufacturing company has just switched to a new automated production
system. Unfortunately, the new machinery has been frequently failing and requiring repairs
and service. The company has been able to provide its customers with a completion time of 6
days or less. To analyze whether the completion time has increased, the production manager
took a sample of 36 jobs and found that the sample mean completion time was 6.5 days with a
sample standard deviation of 1.5 days. At a significance level of .10, we can show that the
completion time has increased.
