Expert Answer

Step 1

Solution:

Part (a): Finding the p-value for the hypothesis test for population mean and state the conclusion:

Hypotheses:

Let µ be the population mean. The aim is to check whether the population mean is less than 45. The null and the alternative hypothesis is,

H0 : µ ≥45 vs Ha : µ <45.

Step 2

Calculation steps:

Test statistic:

A random sample of size 36 has been taken and asked whether the population mean is less than 45. Given that, n =36  and sample mean, x-bar =44 with its corresponding sample standard deviation, s=5.2 and level of significance as 0.01. Therefore, The hypothetical mean, µ0 is 45.  The test statistic for hypothesis test for mean is given by:

Step 3

where x-bar is the sample mean, µ0 is the hypothesized mean, s is the sample standard deviation and n is the sample size.

Substitute x-ba...
