1 points
Question 2
1.
To express a sample mean as a Z value:

a. subtract the hypothesized population mean.

b. subtract the hypothesized population mean and divide by the standard deviation.

c. subtract the hypothesized population mean and divide by the standard error of the mean.

1 points
Question 3
1.

b. neither retain nor reject, but increase the size of the sample

c. reject the null hypothesis

d. retain the null hypothesis
1 points
Question 4
1.

b. must determine whether this observed difference can reasonably be attributed to chance

d. can conclude that the alternative hypothesis is true
1 points
Question 5
1.

1 points
