C) a two-tail test should be used.D) a regression analysis should be performed.


6. We have created a 95% confidence interval for μ with the result (12, 17). What decision will we make if we test H0: μ = 16 versus Ha: μ ≠ 16 at α = 0.05?

A) Reject H0

B) Accept H0

C) Fail to reject H0

D) We cannot tell what our decision will be from the information given



7. Suppose we want to test H0: μ = 30 versus Ha: μ< 30. Which of the following possible sample results based on a sample of size 36 gives the strongest evidence to reject H0 in favor of Ha?

A) = 28, S = 6

B)  = 27, S = 4

C)  = 32, S = 2

D) = 26, S = 9



8. A major DVD rental chain is considering opening a new store in an area that currently does not have any such stores. The chain will open if there is evidence that more than 5,000 of the 20,000 households in the area are equipped with DVD players. It conducts a telephone poll of 300 randomly selected households in the area and finds that 96 have DVD players. What is the alternative hypothesis (Ha) the chain will use in a hypothesis test?

A) p> 0.32

B) p> 0.25

C) p> 5,000

D) μ> 5,000



9. A manager of the credit department for an oil company states that the mean monthly balance of credit card holders is equal to $75. An auditor selects a random sample of 100 accounts and finds that the mean owed is $83.40 with a sample standard deviation of $23.65.
