hour was 7.7 seconds. Suppose that you want to test the claim that the
average time to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour is longer than 7.7
seconds. What would you use for the alternative hypothesis?
A.H1: f$mu f$ = 7.7 seconds
B.H1: f$mu geq f$ 7.7 seconds
Correct C.H1: f$mu f$ > 7.7 seconds
D.H1: f$mu f$ < 7.7 seconds
Answer Key: C

Results from previous studies showed 79% of all high school seniors from
a certain city plan to attend college after graduation. A random sample of
200 high school seniors from this city reveals that 162 plan to attend
college. Does this indicate that the percentage has increased from that of
previous studies? Test at the 5% level of significance.
What is the p-value associated with your test of hypothesis?
A.0.6874
B.0.7563
Correct C.0.2437
D.0.4874
Answer Key: C

hitting the shore. Suppose that a storm is in progress with a severe storm
class rating. Let us say that we want to set up a statistical test to see if the
wave action (i.e., height) is dying down or getting worse. If you wanted to
test the hypothesis that the waves are dying down, what would you use for
the alternate hypothesis? Is the P-value area on the left, right, or on both
sides of the mean?
A.H1: f$mu f$ is not equal to 16.4 feet; the P-value area is on the right of
the mean
B.H1: f$mu f$ is greater than 16.4 feet; the P-value area is on the left of
the mean
Correct C.H1: f$mu f$ is less than 16.4 feet; the P-value area is on the
left of the mean
D.H1: f$mu f$ is greater than 16.4 feet; the P-value area is on both sides
of the mean

A two-tailed test is one where:
A.negative sample means lead to rejection of the null hypothesis
Correct B.results in either of two directions can lead to rejection of the
null hypothesis
C.no results lead to the rejection of the null hypothesis
D.results in only one direction can lead to rejection of the null hypothesis

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.
A medical doctor wishes to test the claim that the standard deviation of the
systolic blood pressure of deep sea divers is less than 450. To do so, she
selected a random sample of 20 divers and found s = 432.

Assuming that the systolic blood pressures of deep sea divers are normally
distributed, if the doctor wanted to test her research hypothesis at the .01
level of significance, what is the critical value?
