Post two of the six exercises from the list for Hypothesis Testing. Post both exercises in a single thread for grading.

Include the chapter number and exercise number in the title of the posting, e.g., 9.5.75 & 9.5.115.

Hypothesis Testing-Single Sample: 9.5.74, 9.5.75, 9.5.78, 9.5.79, 9.5.80, 9.5.81

Use a level of 5% unless otherwise stated. If the sample size is less than n=30, use a "t" distribution instead of "Z."

Do not compute p-value for "t"distribution problems. Just compare the test value of "t" with the critical value corresponding to the given level. See examples in Videos-Topics In Stat 230. Click on link below for example of p-value for lower tail test.

Exercise 9.5.74
A particular brand of tires claims that its deluxe tire averages at least 50,000 miles before it needs to be
replaced. From past studies of this tire, the standard deviation is known to be 8,000. A survey of owners
of that tire design is conducted. From the 28 tires surveyed, the mean lifespan was 46,500 miles with a
standard deviation of 9,800 miles. Using alpha = 0.05, is the data highly inconsistent with the claim?
Exercise 9.5.75
From generation to generation, the mean age when smokers first start to smoke varies. However, the
standard deviation of that age remains constant of around 2.1 years. A survey of 40 smokers of this
generation was done to see if the mean starting age is at least 19. The sample mean was 18.1 with a
sample standard deviation of 1.3. Do the data support the claim at the 5% level?
Exercise 9.5.78
The mean number of sick days an employee takes per year is believed to be about ten. Members of a
personnel department do not believe this figure. They randomly survey eight employees. The number of
sick days they took for the past year are as follows: 12; 4; 15; 3; 11; 8; 6; 8. Let x = the number of sick
days they took for the past year. Should the personnel team believe that the mean number is ten?
Exercise 9.5.79
In 1955, Life Magazine reported that the 25 year-old mother of three worked, on average, an 80 hour
week. Recently, many groups have been studying whether or not the women's movement has, in fact,
resulted in an increase in the average work week for women (combining employment and at-home
work). Suppose a study was done to determine if the mean work week has increased. 81 women were
surveyed with the following results. The sample mean was 83; the sample standard deviation was ten.
Does it appear that the mean work week has increased for women at the 5% level?
Exercise 9.5.80
Your statistics instructor claims that 60 percent of the students who take her Elementary Statistics class
go through life feeling more enriched. For some reason that she can't quite figure out, most people
don't believe her. You decide to check this out on your own. You randomly survey 64 of her past
Elementary Statistics students and find that 34 feel more enriched as a result of her class. Now, what do
you think?
Exercise 9.5.81
A Nissan Motor Corporation advertisement read, “The average man’s I.Q. is 107. The average brown
trout’s I.Q. is 4. So why can’t man catch brown trout?” Suppose you believe that the brown trout’s mean
I.Q. is greater than four. You catch 12 brown trout. A fish psychologist determines the I.Q.s as follows: 5;
4; 7; 3; 6; 4; 5; 3; 6; 3; 8; 5. Conduct a hypothesis test of your belief.
