Question 5-7: The owner of a local nightclub has recently surveyed a random sampled of 81 customers of the club with: X = 21.73, s = 2.8. She would like to determine whether or not the mean age of her customers is over 21. 5) Give the null and alternative hypotheses. A) H0: X ≤ 21.73 and H1: X > 21.73 C) H0: m ≤ 21 and H1: m > 21 B) H0: m = 21 and H1: m ≠ 21 D) H0: m ≥ 21 and H1: m < 21

6) Using the sample information provided, calculate the value of the test statistic. A) t = (21.73-21.00) / (2.8/9) C) t = (21.73-21.00) / 2.8 7) Suppose a = 0.005. Which of the following is correct? A) At a = 0.005, we fail to reject H0. C) No decision should be make B) At a = 0.005, we accept the data. D) At a = 0.005, we reject H0. B) t = (21.73-21.00 ) / ( 2.8/92 ) D) t = (21.00 - 21.73) / ( 2.8/9)

Question 11-12: You're a manager of a hotel. You want to achieve the higest level of service. For 10 days, you collect data on the readiness of 100 rooms. Day 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Total: #Rooms 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 1000 #Not Ready 10 15 10 16 19 16 13 15 11 15 140

11) The p control chart is to be made for these data. The proportion p (the center line) of the control chart is __________. A) 0.150 B) 0.140 C) 0.143 D) 14.00

12) The p control chart is to be made for these data. The upper control limit is __________, and the lower control limit is __________. A) 0.232; 0.0132 B) 0.0864; 0.001 C) 0.249; 0.039 D) 0.244;0.036

Question 13-14: In an article, the authors compare the use of humor in TV ads in the United States and in the United Kingdom. A random sample of 100 TV ads in the United States reveals that 45 use humor, while a random sample of 120 TV ads in the United Kingdom reveals that 35 use humor. Let p1 and p2 represent the true proportion of ads using humor in the United States and in the United Kingdom respectively. If we want to test the claim that the proportions are different, 13) Which of the following represents the hypotheses? A) H0 : p 1 - p 2 ≥ 0 versus H1 : p 1 - p 2 < 0 C) H0 : p 1 - p 2 ≤ 0 versus H1 : p 1 - p 2 > 0 B) H0 : p 1 - p 2 = 0 versus H1 : p 1 - p 2 ≠ 0 D) H0 : p 1 - p 2 ≠ 0 versus H1 : p 1 - p 2 = 0

14) At a = 0.01, if the test statistic is 2.43, which of the following is most correct? A) Fail to reject H0 , there is not enough evidence to conclude that the two proportions are different. B) Fail to reject H0 , there is not enough evidence to conclude that the two proportions are the same. C) Reject H0 . There is enough evidence to conclude that the two proportions are different. D) Reject H0 . There is enough evidence to...
