2. Null hypothesis: H 0 : 2 = 0.01 3. Alternative hypothesis: H 1 : 2 > 0.01
9-4 Hypothesis Tests on the Variance and Standard Deviation of a Normal Distribution Example 9-8 4. Test statistic: The test statistic is 5. Reject H 0 : Use = 0.05 , and reject H 0 if . 6. Computations: 7. Conclusions: Since , we conclude that there is no strong evidence that the variance of fill volume exceeds 0.01 (fluid ounces) 2 . So there is no strong evidence of a problem with incorrectly filled bottles. 2 0 2 1 s n 14 . 30 2  07 . 29 01 . 0 ) 0153 . 0 ( 19 14 . 30 07 . 29 2 

9-5 Tests on a Population Proportion EXAMPLE 9-10 Automobile Engine Controller A semiconductor manufacturer produces controllers used in automobile engine applications. The customer requires that the process fallout or fraction defective at a critical manufacturing step not exceed 0.05 and that the manufacturer demonstrate process capability at this level of quality using = 0.05. The semiconductor manufacturer takes a random sample of 200 devices and finds that four of them are defective. Can the manufacturer demonstrate process capability for the customer? We may solve this problem using the seven-step hypothesis-testing procedure as follows: 1. Parameter of Interest: The parameter of interest is the process fraction defective p. 2. Null hypothesis: H 0 : p = 0.05 3. Alternative hypothesis: H 1 : p < 0.05 This formulation of the problem will allow the manufacturer to make a strong claim about process capability if the null hypothesis H 0 : p = 0.05 is rejected.
9-5 Tests on a Population Proportion Example 9-10 4. The test statistic is (from Equation 9-10) where x = 4, n = 200, and p 0 = 0.05. 5. Reject H 0 if: Reject H 0 : p = 0.05 if the p-value is less than 0.05. 6. Computations: The test statistic is 7. Conclusions: Since z 0 = 1.95, the P- value is ( 1.95) = 0.0256, so we reject H 0 and conclude that the process fraction defective p is less than 0.05. Practical Interpretation: We conclude that the process is capable. ) 1 ( 0 0 0 0 p np np x z 95 . 1 ) 95 . 0 )( 05 . 0 ( 200 ) 05 . 0 ( 200 4 0 z

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
