Question;Question 1 of 20 1.0 Points;A lab technician is tested for her consistency by taking multiple measurements;of cholesterol levels from the same blood sample. The target accuracy is a;variance in measurements of 1.2 or less. If the lab technician takes 16 measurements;and the variance of the measurements in the sample is 2.2, does this provide;enough evidence to reject the claim that the lab technician?s accuracy is;within the target accuracy?;State the null and alternative hypotheses.;A.

Does;this indicate that the percentage has increased from that of previous studies?;Test at the 5% level of significance.;What is your conclusion?;A. Cannot determine;B. More seniors are going to college;C. Reject H0. There is enough evidence to support the claim that the proportion;of students planning to go to college is now greater than.79.;D. Do not reject H0. There;is not enough evidence to support the claim that the proportion of students;planning to go to college is greater than.79..;Question 7 of 20 1.0 Points;In an article appearing in Today?s Health a writer states that the average;number of calories in a serving of popcorn is 75.

The target accuracy is a;variance in measurements of 1.2 or less. If the lab technician takes 16;measurements and the variance of the measurements in the sample is 2.2, does;this provide enough evidence to reject the claim that the lab technician?s;accuracy is within the target accuracy?;At the a =.01 level of significance, what is your conclusion?;A.;Reject H0. At the =.01 level of significance, there is not enough evidence to;support the claim that this technician?s true variance is larger than the;target accuracy.;B. Do not reject H0. At the =.01 level of significance there is not sufficient;evidence to suggest that this technician?s true variance is greater than the;target accuracy.;C. Cannot determine;D. Reject H0. At the =.01;level of significance, there is enough evidence to support the claim that this;technician?s variance is larger than the target accuracy..;Question 11 of 20 1.0 Points;The null and alternative hypotheses divide all possibilities into;A. two sets that overlap;B. two sets that may or may not overlap;C. as many sets as necessary to cover all possibilities;D. two non-overlapping;sets.;Part 2 of 3 -;Question 12 of 20 1.0 Points;A survey determines that mint chocolate chip is the favorite ice cream flavor;of 6% of consumers.

To do so, she;selected a random sample of 25 divers and found s = 468.;Assuming that the systolic blood pressures of deep sea divers are normally distributed;the doctor would perform a chi-square test to test her research hypothesis.

You wonder if the average might differ from the 1500 hours that the;firm claims. To explore this possibility you take a random sample of n = 25;light bulbs purchased from this firm and record the lifetime (in hours) of each;bulb. You then conduct an appopriate test of hypothesis.
