11 You are reading a report that contains a hypothesis test you are interested in.  The writer of the report writes that the p-value for the test you are interested in is 0.065, but does not tell you the value of the test statistic.  From this information you can:
 
 
a Reject the null hypothesis at a probability of Type I error = 0.10, and reject at a probability of Type I error = 0.05 
 
b not reject the null hypothesis at a probability of Type I error = 0.10, and not reject at a probability of Type I error = 0.05

15 Pete Zaria owns a chain of pizza parlors that delivers most of the pizzas it sells.  Pete is planning an advertising campaign stressing the quickness of his delivery.  He will advertise that the average time is 20 minutes or less (at most 20 minutes).  Before making this claim, Pete randomly selects 16 calls on different days and records the mean time between the call and the delivery.  The sample mean is 22.1 minutes with a standard deviation of 4.5 minutes.  Is there significant evidence to reject the null hypothesis?  Test the hypothesis at a 5 percent level of significance.
 
 
 
 
 
  The test statistic is ______.            
a 1.87 Reject the null hypothesis.  Pete should not advertise.      
b 1.87 Do not reject the null hypothesis.  Pete may advertise.      
c 1.25 Reject the null hypothesis.  Pete should not advertise.      
d 1.25 Do not reject the null hypothesis.  Pete may advertise.      
                   
Next FIVE questions are based on the following regression model      
To determine the impact of variations in price on sales the management of Big Bob's Burger Barn sets different prices in its burger joints in 61 stores located in different cities.
Using the sales and price data, a simple regression is run with sales (in thousands of dollars) as the dependent variable and price (in dollars) as the independent variable.
Use the following calculations and the accompanying regression summary output to answer the next seven questions.
