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 H0 if the number of successes is 2 or less.  
B. Reject H0 if the number of successes is 8 or more.  
C. Reject H0 if the number of successes is three or less.  
D. Reject H0 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 computer-based 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.

Question 5 of 20
5.0 Points
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. Thirty-eight of 60 people indicated a preference. At the .05 level of significance, we can conclude that:

A. z = 0.75, fail to reject H0.  
B. z = 1.94, fail to reject H0.  
C. z = 1.94, reject H0.  
D. z = 2.19, reject H0.

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. H0 : p = 0.50; H1:p < 0.50.  
B. H0 : p = 0.50; H1:p > 0.50.  
C. H0 : p = 25; H1:p > 25.  
D. H0 : p = 25; H1:p < 25.

A. z = 3.75, we can reject the null hypothesis.  
B. z = 1.875, we fail to reject the null hypothesis.  
C. z = -1.625, we fail to reject the null hypothesis.  
D. z = -1.875, we can reject the null hypothesis.

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. Ho: 0 = 250; H1: 0 < 250.  
B. Ho: median = 250; H1: median > 250.  
C. Ho: 0 > 250; H1: 0 < 250.  
D. Ho: median = 250; H1: median < 250.

Question 9 of 20
5.0 Points
From the information presented in question #8, using a level of significance = .05:

A. z = -1.74; we should fail to reject the null hypothesis.  
B. z = 2.64; we should fail to reject the null hypothesis.  
C. z = -2.72; we should fail to reject the null hypothesis.  
D. z = -3.17; we should reject the null hypothesis.
