Question #1.

  Sample Size Sample Mean Population Standard Deviation
Women 30 28 10
Men 25 23 5

At the 0.01 significance level, we ask if there is a difference in the mean number of times men and women send a twitter message in a day . What is the value of the test statistic for this hypothesis test ?
A. .2580
B. 2.672
C. 2.400
D. 2.668

Question #2.

The Tampa Bay ( Florida ) Area chamber of Commerce wanted to know whether the mean weekly salary of nurses was larger than that of school teachers. To investigate , they collect ed the following information on the amounts earned last week by a sample of school teachers and nurses

School Teachers $ 1,095 1,076 1,077 1,125 1,034 1,059 1,052 1,070 1,079 1,080 1,092 1,082
Nurses $ 1,091 1,140 1,071 1,021 1,100 1,109 1,075 1,079



It is reasonable to conclude that the mean weekly salary of nurses is higher? Use the 0.01 sigificance level. Hint for calculations, assume the nurses as the first sample.

Question #3. A part of the study of corporate employees, the director of human resources for PNC Inc wants to compare the distance traveled to work by employees at its office downtown Cincinnati with the distance for those in downtown Cincinnati distance with the distance for those in downtown Pittsburgh . A sample of 35 Cincinnati employees showed they travel a mean of 370 miles per month. A sample of 40 Pittsburgh employees showed they travel a mean of 380 miles per month. The population standard deviations for Cincinnati and Pittsburgh employee are 30 and 26 miles, respectively. At the 0.05 signifance level, is there a difference in the mean number of miles traveled per month between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh employees ?

A. Is this a one-tailed or a two tailed tests?

One -tailed
Two-tailed test

B. State the decision rule . (Negative values should be indicated by a minus sign. Round your answers to 2 decimals places )

The decision rule is to reject H0:uC=uP if z is outside interval

Question #4. We test for a hypothesized difference between two population means : H0: U1=u2. The population standard deviations are unknown but assumed equal. The number of observations in the first step is 15, and 12 in the second sample. How many degrees of freedom
are association with the critical value ?

Question #5. Clarke Heter is an industrial engineer at Lyons Products. He would like to determine whether there are more units produced on the night shift . The mean number of units produced by a sample of 57 day-shift workers was 359 . The mean number of units produced by a sample of 65 night -shift workers was 369 . Assume the population standard deviation of the number of units produced on the day shift is 23 and 32 on the night shift.

A. Is this a one -tailed or a two -tailed tests

One-tailed test
Two-tailed test

Question #6. Fairfield homes is developing two parcels near Pigeon Forge, tennessee . In order to test different advertising approaches it uses different media to reach potential buyers. The mean annual family income for 15 people making inquires at the first development is $ 150,000 with a standard deviation of $40,000 . A corresponding sample of 25 people at the second development had a mean of $180,000 with a standard of $ 30,000 .Assume the population standard deviation are the same . At the 0.05 signifance level can Fairfield conclude that the population means are different ?

A. State the decision rule for 0.05 signifinance level : H0 : U 1 =u2; H1:U1 u2. Negative values should be indicated by a minus sign.

Question #7 The net weights ( in grams ) of sample of bottles filled by a machine manufactured by Edne, and the net weights of a sample filled by a similar machine manufactured by Orno, Inc are

Edne 8 7 6 9 7 5

Orno 10 7 11 9 12 14 9 8

Testing the claim at the 0.05 level that the mean weight of the bottles filled by the orno machine is greater than the mean weight of the bottles filled by the Edne machine what is the critical value for the test ? Assume equal standard deviation for both samples

Question #8.

A random sample of 10 observations from one population revealed a sample mean of 23 and a simple deviation of 4 . A random sample sample of 8 observation from another population revealed a sample mean of 26 and a sample standard of 5 . At the .05 signifance level, there a difference between the population means ?

Verified Expert

The assignment is based on multiple questions on hypothesis testing. The two sample means having different sample sizes and variances are used. The t test and z test have been used as per the required questions. Hypothesis testing is based on testing certain hypothesis and then rejecting or accepting null or alternate hypothesis.
