2. Identify the null hypothesis Ho and the alternative hypothesis H1. The manufacturer of a refrigerator system for beer kegs produces refrigerators that are supposed to maintain a true mean temperature, µ, of 46 degree F, ideal for a certain type of German pilsner. The owner of the brewery does not agree with the refrigerator manufacturer, and claims he can prove that the true mean temperature is incorrect. Ho: µ pq7_4 46 degree, H1: µ= 46 degree Ho: µ = 46 degree, H1: µ pq7_446 degree Ho: µ pq7_4 46 degree, H1: µ> 46 degree Ho: µ pq7_4 46 degree, H1: µ < 46 degree (Points : 7) Please refer to answer choice a. above.

Is there any way that you can take a screenshot of the problems and post that? Many of the vital numbers in the problems are actually graphics instead of text and they don't come through when you copy and paste.

Once you have the screenshot, you can attach it to a reply in this thread by using the "paper clip" button on the toolbar. After clicking on the "paper clip" button, click on Browse and navigate through your the folders to find the file with the screenshot.

The appearance of the toolbar depends on the browser that you are using, so if it doesn't show up on your end, here is an alternative.

You can upload the screenshot file to a file-sharing website such as mediafire.com. After you upload your file to that site, they will assign a sharing URL to your file. Copy that link and past it into your reply here. It will look something like this:

Well, it would be easier, but I can't do that. That would violate this site's policies, and would jeopardize my position here. I'm pretty sure my family wouldn't appreciate that.

I'm working my way through these, and so far I believe I can figure out what is missing.

Here are the first five answers:

1. A. H0: µ = 21; H1: µ > 21

2. B. H0: µ = 46 degree; H1: µ ≠ 46 degree

3. D. 1.645

4. A. 1.48

5. B. There is sufficient evidence to support the claim that the true proportion is less than 2 in ten thousand.

I'll let you know if I have questions about any of the remaining problems, and I'll post the next five answers as soon as I have them.

This has been the hardest class ever for me. I did not do to well in the last 2 tests. This really helped me. One more week to go, please be available next week.

You're quite welcome. I'm very happy that I could help.

I'll be happy to help you next week. I'm usually online most of every day. (And just saying that has probably jinxed us...) If you have a particular time and day in mind, feel free to let me know. I can try to be sure to be online at that time.

And don't worry about it if life gets in the way and that time doesn't work out. I'm usually online all day anyway, so it won't be a big deal for me. The real purpose in setting the appointment is to make it convenient for you.

Thanks again Ryan, this is definitely an acquired class and one best fit for the class room vs. on line. But that wasn’t an option for me this time around.

Life is definitely busy working full time, school full time, planning my June wedding, caring for my son and now expecting our new bundle in September. Thanks for helping. It is soooooooo appreciated!

Just so you know, I'm going to post them in the other thread that you opened, since you have already rated an answer in this thread. JustAnswer prefers to keep questions in separate threads, so this will help keep me out of their doghouse.
