State the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis ONLY

i) One of the major Malaysia tire makers wishes to review its warranty for their rainmaker tire. The warranty is for 40,000 kilometers. The tire company believes that the tire actually lasts more than 40,000 kilometers. A sample 49 tires revealed that the mean number of kilometers is 45,000 kilometers with a standard deviation of 15,000 kilometers. What is the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis?

ii) It is claimed that in a bushel of peaches less than ten percent are defective. A sample of 400 peaches is examined and 50 are found to be defective. What is the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis?

Question 2
CCTV and AATV provided a television channel targeted to individuals waiting in supermarket checkout lines. The channel showed news, short features, and advertisements. The length of the program was based on the assumption that the population mean time a shopper stands in a supermarket checkout line is 8 minutes. A sample of actual waiting times will be used to test this assumption and determine whether actual mean waiting time differs from this standard.

|Formulate the hypotheses for this application | | |A sample of 120 shoppers showed a sample mean waiting time of 8.4 minutes. Assume a population standard | | |deviation (σ) = 3.2 minutes. What is the p-value? | | |At α = 0.05, what is your conclusion? | | | | |

...“Accept” the NullHypothesis
by Keith M. Bower, M.S. and James A. Colton, M.S.
Reprinted with permission from the American Society for Quality
When performing statistical hypothesis tests such as a one-sample t-test or the AndersonDarling test for normality, an investigator will either reject or fail to reject the nullhypothesis, based upon sampled data. Frequently, results in Six Sigma projects contain

1. Sweets called “Scruffies” are sold in packets of 18.
Scruffies come in a variety of colours, and market research shows that red is the most popular. Scruffies are packed randomly, and on average 25% are red.
(i) Find the probability that a packet contains no more than 6 red Scruffies. [2]
(ii) Find the probability that a packet contains exactly 4 red Scruffies. [2]
Because of a fault in...

...Elements of a Test of Hypothesis 1. NullHypothesis (H0 ) - A statement about the values of population parameters which we accept until proven false. 2. Alternative or Research Hypothesis (Ha )- A statement that contradicts the nullhypothesis. It represents researcher’s claim about the population parameters. This will be accepted only when data provides suﬃcient evidence to establish its truth. 3. Test...

Previously a group of friends compared the average temperature for the 15 days in each of the 2004 and 2005 Christmas holiday pubic school vacations to determine which holiday was colder. Secondary research retrieved from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Weather Service website provided climatic data on a daily basis for each day of the periods under investigation. Daily average temperature for each of the 15-day...

NullHypothesis
The nullhypothesis, is an essential part of any research design, and is always tested, even indirectly. The 'null' often refers to the common view of something, and so the nullhypothesis (H0) is a hypothesis in which the researcher tries to disprove, reject or nullify.
Examples of the NullHypothesis
A researcher may...
