D. H0: Md ≤ 40 11789 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 85. The claim of the manufacturer of cell phone batteries is that the median life of a battery is
more than 40 hours. Suppose a random sample of 75 batteries finds that 32 have a life of more
than 40 hours.
Using α = .05, can we conclude that the battery life is more than 40 hours?
A. Reject the null hypothesis, z = 1.38
B. Fail to reject the null hypothesis, z = 1.38
C. Reject the null hypothesis, z = 1.38
D. Fail to reject the null hypothesis, z = 1.38 86. The claim of a local real estate agent is that the median selling price of homes in a major
Midwestern city is more than $200,000. Suppose a random sample of 100 homes sold in the
last six months is taken and 53 sold for over $200,000.
State the null hypothesis to test the claim. Assume that the population of selling prices is not
normally distributed.
A. H0: Md ≤ 200000
B. H0: Md ≥ 200000
C. H0: Md ≠ 200000
D. H0: Md > 200000 87. The claim of a local real estate agent is that the median selling price of homes in a major
Midwestern city is more than $200,000. Suppose a random sample of 100 homes sold in the
last six months is taken and 53 sold for over $200,000.
Using
= .01, test the real estate agent's claim. What do you conclude about the selling
prices of the homes?

them at local electronic stores. Listed below are the prices (in dollars) quoted for boxes of 200

buying from the local electronics stores (E).
A. HA: DI is shifted to the right of DE

electronics store purchases? Test at
= .05
A. Reject the null hypothesis, Internet purchases are less than local stores

less than local stores 11795 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 96. A study was conducted to investigate the effect of an intervention protocol on IQ tests.
Nine randomly selected students were tested. Set up the alternative hypothesis for the claim that the intervention protocol is effective in
increasing scores.

identical.
