Expert Answer

Step 1

Given
mean weight of coin = 2.5g
sample size = n = 35
Mean weight of coins in sample = 2.49394g
Standard deviation of coins in sample = 0.01501g
Level of significance = 0.05
Null Hypothesis : H0 : µ = 2.5g
Alternative Hypothesis : Ha : µ ≠ 2.5g

The sample size is 5 and given that population is normal, So we use a Z test and test statistic is calculated as shown below
Statistics homework question answer, step 1, image 1

Test statistic = -2.389 (rounded to three decimals)

Step 2

Using Excel and command NORM.DIST(x,mean,sd,cumulative) and plug in values we get
NORM.DIST(-2.389,0,1,1) = 0.008447
The probability to left of Z score -2.389 is 0.008447

Statistics homework question answer, step 2, image 1

The hypothesis test is two tailed test. So the p value = 2*0.008447 = 0.016894 = 0.0169 (roun...
