Unformatted text preview: esis is a statement that will be accepted only if there is convincing sample evidence that it is true. FALSE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Comprehension Difficulty: Easy Topic: Hypothesis testing 11. As the level of significance α increases, we are more likely to reject the null hypothesis. TRUE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Comprehension Difficulty: Medium Topic: Hypothesis testing 12. A test statistic is computed from sample data in hypothesis testing and is used in making a decision about whether or not to reject the null hypothesis. TRUE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Comprehension Difficulty: Medium Topic: Hypothesis testing 13. When conducting a hypothesis test about a single mean, other relevant factors held constant, increasing the level of significance from .05 to .10 will reduce the probability of a Type I error. FALSE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Comprehension Difficulty: Medium Topic: Type I or Type II error 1-756 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 14. When conducting a hypothesis test about a single mean, other relevant factors held constant, increasing the level of significance from .05 to .10 will reduce the probability of a Type II error. TRUE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Comprehension Difficulty: Medium Topic: Type I or Type II error 15. The level of significance indicates the probability of rejecting a false null hypothesis. FALSE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Comprehension Difficulty: Medium Topic: Hypothesis testing 16. When conducting a hypothesis test about a single mean, reducing the level of significance (α) will increase the size of the rejection region. FALSE AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Topic: Hypothesis testing 17. When the null hypothesis is not rejected, there is no possibility of making a Type I error. TRUE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Comprehension Difficulty: Medium Topic: Type I or Type II error 1-757 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 18. When the null hypothesis is true, there is no possibility of making a Type I error. FALSE AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Comprehension Difficulty: Medium Topic: Type I or Type II error 19. Testing H0: µ ≤ 8 versus HA: µ > 8, given α = .01, n = 25, = 8.112, and s = .16, we should reject the H0. (Assume the sample is selected from a normally distributed population.) TRUE AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Topic: Hypothesis testing 1-758 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 20. Testing H0: µ ≥ 22 versus HA: µ < 22, given α = .01, n = 100, we should not reject H0. FALSE = 21.431, and s = 1.295, AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Topic: Hypothesis testing 21. Testing H0: µ = 32 versus HA: µ > 32 when should reject H0.

When we test H0: p = .2 versus HA: p ≠ .2 with reject the null hypothesis. FALSE = .26 and n = 100 at alpha = .05 we AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Topic: Hypothesis testing 23. After testing at to reject H0. FALSE = .05 H0: p = .33 versus HA: p < .33 with AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Topic: Hypothesis testing 1-760 = .20 and n = 100, we fail Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 24. Testing H0: µ ≤ .95 versus HA: µ > .95 when = .99, s = .12, and n = 24 at alpha = .05, we reject H0. (Assume a normally distributed population.) TRUE AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Topic: Hypothesis testing 25. Testing H0: p ≥ .7 versus HA: p < .7 with reject the null hypothesis. TRUE = .63 and n = 100 at AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Topic: Hypothesis testing 1-761 = .01, we fail to Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 26. When we test H0: µ ≤ 3.0 versus HA: µ > 3.0 when = 3.44, s = .57, and n = 13 at a significance level of .05, we fail to reject H0. (Assume population normality) FALSE AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Topic: Hypothesis testing 27. Testing H0: µ ≥ 2.5 versus HA: µ < 2.5 when = 2.46, s = .05, and n = 26 at α = .10 we reject the null hypothesis. (Assume that the population from which the sample is selected is normally distributed.) TRUE AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Topic: Hypothesis testing 1-762 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 28. It can be established at = .05 that a majority of students favor the plus/minus grading system at a university if in a random sample of 500 students, 270 favor the system. TRUE AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Topic: Hypothesis testing 29. Testing H0: µ ≤ 42 versus HA: µ > 42 when = 45, s = 1.2, and n = 15 at α = .01, we fail to reject the null hypothesis. (Assume that the population fr...
