Question 3 of 20

5.0 Points 
In an experiment, a sample size of 10 is drawn, and a hypothesis test is set up to determine: H
_{0} : p = 0.50; H
_{1}:p < or = 0.50; for a significance level of .10, the decision rule is as follows:

A. Reject H_{0} if the number of successes is 2 or less. 


B. Reject H_{0} if the number of successes is 8 or more. 


C. Reject H_{0} if the number of successes is three or less. 


D. Reject H_{0} if the number of successes is less than 2 or more than 8.

Question 4 of 20

5.0 Points 
For a “before and after” test, 16 of a sample of 25 people improved their scores on a test after receiving computerbased instruction. For H
_{0} : p = 0.50; H
_{1}:p is not equal to 0.50; and a significance level of .05:

A. z = 1.2, fail to reject the null hypothesis. 


B. z = 1.4, reject the null hypothesis. 


C. z = 1.4, fail to reject the null hypothesis. 


D. z = 1.64, reject the null hypothesis.

A sample group was surveyed to determine which of two brands of soap was preferred. H
_{0} :p = 0.50; H
_{1}: p is not equal to 0.50. Thirtyeight of 60 people indicated a preference. At the .05 level of significance, we can conclude that:

A. z = 0.75, fail to reject H_{0}. 


B. z = 1.94, fail to reject H_{0}. 


C. z = 1.94, reject H_{0}. 


D. z = 2.19, reject H_{0}.

Question 6 of 20

5.0 Points 
The performance of students on a test resulted in a mean score of 25. A new test is instituted and the instructor believes the mean score is now lower. A random sample of 64 students resulted in 40 scores below 25. At a significance level of α = .05:

A. H_{0} : p = 0.50; H_{1}:p < 0.50. 


B. H_{0} : p = 0.50; H_{1}:p > 0.50. 


C. H_{0} : p = 25; H_{1}:p > 25. 


D. H_{0} : p = 25; H_{1}:p < 25.

Question 8 of 20

5.0 Points 
A golf club manufacturer claims that the median length of a drive using its driver is 250 yards. A consumer group disputes the claim, indicating that the median will be considerably less. A sample of 500 drives is measured; of these 220 were above 250 yards, and none was exactly 250 yards. The null and alternate hypotheses are:

A. H_{o}: 0 = 250; H_{1}: 0 < 250. 


B. H_{o}: median = 250; H_{1}: median > 250. 


C. H_{o}: 0 > 250; H_{1}: 0 < 250. 


D. H_{o}: median = 250; H_{1}: median < 250.
