Question 30 / 1 pointA professor would like to test the hypothesis that the average number of minutes that a student needs to complete a statistics exam has a standard deviation that is less than 5.0 minutes. A random sample of 15 students was selected and the sample standard deviation for the time needed to complete the exam was found to be 4.0 minutes. Using α= 0.05, the critical value for this hypothesis test would be ________. Question 41 / 1 pointA professor would like to test the hypothesis that the average number of minutes that a student needs to complete a statistics exam has a standard deviation that is less than 5.0 minutes. A random sample of 15 students was selected and the sample standard deviation for the time needed to complete the exam was found to be 4.0 minutes. Using α= 0.05, the conclusion for this hypothesis test would be that because thetest statistic ismore than the critical value, we fail to reject the null hypothesis and cannot conclude that the standard deviation for the time to complete an exam is less than 5.0 minutes.   #### You've reached the end of your free preview.
