Question

Assume that a simple random sample has been selected from a normally distributed population and test the given claim. Use the p value method and fill in the blanks to address the claim.

A manufacturer makes ball bearings that are supposed to have a mean weight of 30g. A retailer suspects that the mean weight is actually less than 30g. The mean weight for a random sample of 16 ball bearings is 29.1g with a standard deviation of 4.4g. At the 0.05 significance level, test the claim that the sample comes from a population with a mean weight less than 30g.

Step 1

Given data
Hypothesized mean µ= 30
Sample Standard deviation s = 4.4
Sample mean = 29.1
Sample size n = 4.4
Claim - sample comes from a population with a mean weight less than 30g
Formulation of hypothesis
Null Hypothesis∶H_0: μ=30,That is mean weight of ball bearing is 30g
