A lake is considered nonacidic if the PH level is greater than 6. The PH level for 15 lakes was: 7.2, 7.3, 6.1, 6.9, 6.6, 7.3, 6.3, 5.5, 6.3, 6.5, 5.7, 6.9, 6.7, 7.9, and 5.8At “alpha” = 0.

(6 points: 1,1,2,1,1)A used car salesman claims that the average price of a 2009 Honda Accord LX is $20,500. You, of course, distrust him (you feel that it is much lower) and find that a random sample of 14 similar cars has a mean of price of $19,850 with a standard deviation of $1084. Is there enough evidence to reject the salesman’s claim at “alpha” = 0.05? (6 points: 1,1,2,1,1)Some big shot Institute claims that 25% of college graduates believe that a college degree is not worth the cost. To test this hypothesis you ask a random sample of 200 graduates and 21% agree with that a degree is not worth the cost. At “alpha” = 0.10, is there enough evidence to reject the claim? (6 points: 1,1,2,1,1)A 2009 national poll of 1053 U.S. adults found that 548 favored the Governments plan for a stimulus package of a minimum of 800 billion dollars Using “alpha” = 0.05, do the data provide evidence to conclude that a majority (more than 50%) of adults favored passage? (6 points: 1,1,2,1,1)A sporting goods producer claims that the variance of the strengths of a certain fishing line is 15.9. A random sample of 15 spools has a variance of 21.8. At “alpha” = 0.01, can the claim be proven wrong? Assume the population is normally distributed. (6 points: 1,1,2,1,1)The standard deviation of the amount of fat in whole milk is claimed to be no greater than 0.50 by the Dairy Association. You do not believe this. You find that a random sample of 31 milk containers has a standard deviation of 0.53. Using... Attachments: Stat-3.doc Jul 05 2012 02:06 PM
