Topic: Hypothesis testing 1788 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 89. The manufacturer of an overthecounter heartburn relief mediation claims that its product
brings relief in less than 3.5 minutes, on average. To be able to make this claim the
manufacturer was required by the FDA to present statistical evidence in support of the claim.
The manufacturer reported that for a sample of 50 heartburn sufferers, the mean time to relief
was 3.3 minutes and the standard deviation was 1.1 minutes. Calculate the pvalue that
corresponds to the test statistic.

Topic: Hypothesis testing 90. A company has developed a new inkjet cartridge for its printer that it believes has a
longer lifetime on average than the one currently being produced. To investigate its length of
life, 225 of the new cartridges were tested by counting the number of highquality printed
pages each was able to produce. The sample mean and standard deviation were determined to
be 1511.4 pages and 35.7 pages, respectively. The historical average lifetime for cartridges
produced by the current process is 1502.5 pages. Calculate the appropriate test statistic to test
the hypotheses.
