An electronics manufacturing process has a scheduled mean completion time of 

70

 minutes. It is claimed that, under new management, the mean completion time, 

μ

, is less than 

70

 minutes. To test this claim, a random sample of 

20

 completion times under new management was taken.

The sample had a mean completion time of 

65

 minutes and a standard deviation of 

10

 minutes. Assume that the population of completion times under new management is normally distributed. At the 

0.05

 level of significance, can it be concluded that the mean completion time, 

μ

, under new management is less than the scheduled mean?

 

Perform a one-tailed test. Then fill in the table below.

Carry your intermediate computations to at least three decimal places and round your answers as specified in the table.

Step 1

Hey, since there are multiple questions posted, we will answer first question. If you want any specific question to be answered then please submit that question only or specify the question number in your message.

Step 2

Null hypothesis:

µ=70.

Alternative hypothesis:

µ<70.

This is a left tailed test.

Since the population standard deviation is unknown, the appropriate test is one sample t-test.

Here, the sample mean, x-bar is 65.

Population mean, µ is 70.

Sample standard deviation, s = 10.

Sample size, n is 20.

The test statistic value can be obtained as follows:
