are not mutually exclusive
indicate a two­tailed test

QUESTION 2

Suppose you are testing the null hypothesis that a population mean is greater than or equal to 60, 
against the alternative hypothesis that the population mean is less than 60. The sample size is 64 
and α = .05. If the sample mean is 58 and the population standard deviation is 16, the 
observed z value is _______. (hint: you can use the Excel file for homework problem 9.7)

QUESTION 3

A researcher is testing a hypothesis of a single mean. The critical z value
for α= .05 and a two-tailed test is +1.96. The observed z value from sample
data is -1.85. The decision made by the researcher based on this information
is to _____ the null hypothesis. (hint: compare the observed z value to the
values of the two tailed test)
change the alternate hypothesis into
fail to reject
reject
redefine
restate the null hypothesis

QUESTION 4

In performing a hypothesis test where the null hypothesis is that the population mean is 23 
against the alternative hypothesis that the population mean is not equal to 23, a random sample 

of 17 items is selected. The sample mean is 24.6 and the sample standard deviation is 3.3. It can
be assumed that the population is normally distributed. The degrees of freedom associated with 
this are _______.

QUESTION 5

In performing a hypothesis test where the null hypothesis is that the
population mean is 4.8 against the alternative hypothesis that the population
mean is not equal to 4.8, a random sample of 25 items is selected. The
sample mean is 4.1 and the sample standard deviation is 1.4. It can be
assumed that the population is normally distributed. The level of
significance is selected to be 0.10. The table "t" value for this problem is
_______. (hint: look up answer in table on p799 after calculating degrees of
freedom and alpha)
