The ABC battery company claims that their batteries last 100 hours, on average. You decide to conduct a test to see if the company's claim is true. You believe that the mean life may be different from the 100 hours the company claims. You decide to collect data on the average battery life (in hours) of a random sample of n = 20 batteries. Some of the information related to the hypothesis test is presented below. Test of H 0 : = 100 versus H 1 : 100 Sample mean 98.5 Std error of mean 0.777 Assuming the life length of batteries is normally distributed, what is the p-value associated with this test? Place your answer, rounded to 3 decimal places in the blank. For example, 0.234 would be a legitimate entry. 0.034
Question 17 of 20 1.0/ 1.0 Points Accepted characters : numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), "E" or "e" (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker. Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where "a" and "b" need to have explicitly stated values. For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not. The CEO of a software company is committed to expanding the proportion of highly qualified women in the organization’s staff of salespersons. He believes that the proportion of women in similar sales positions across the country is less than 45%. Hoping to find support for his belief, he directs you to test H 0 : p .45 vs H 1 : p < .45. In doing so, you collect a random sample of 50 salespersons employed by his company, which is thought to be representative of sales staffs of competing organizations in the industry. The collected random sample of size 50 showed that only 18 were women. Compute the test value that you would use in conducting this test. Place your answer, rounded to 3 decimal places, in the blank. For example, -2.345 would be a legitimate entry. -1.279 Answer Key: -1.279 Part 3 of 3 - 3.0/ 3.0 Points
Question 18 of 20 1.0/ 1.0 Points Sample evidence is statistically significant at the level only if the p value is larger than .
Question 19 of 20 1.0/ 1.0 Points Using the confidence interval when conducting a two-tailed test for the population mean, we do not reject the null hypothesis if the hypothesized value for falls between the lower and upper confidence limits.
Question 20 of 20 1.0/ 1.0 Points The smaller the p value, the more evidence there is in favor of the alternative hypothesis.
