Use the following information to answer Questions 1–3.

In a simple random sample of 1000 households, 150 of these households happen to have sailboats. However, the characteristics of the population would make us expect the number of sailboat owners to be 180 in this sample.

**C. **increased by two times.

**D. **increased by four times.

9. A simple random sample with *n *= 700 is drawn from a binomial process in

**A. **0.005

**B. **0.050

**C. **0.995

**D. **0.9975

11. For a given sample size, reducing the probability of a Type I error will

**A. **increase the probability of a Type II error.

**B. **decrease the probability of a Type II error.

**C. **have no effect on the probability of a Type II error.

**D. **seriously affect the standard deviation of the sample.

12. The last step in hypothesis testing is to

**A. **state the decision rule.

13. Which of the following statements about *p*-value testing is *true?*

Of the following values, which would you use as the point estimate for the average number of days absent for all the firm’s employees?

**A. **2.5

**B. **3

**C. **4

**D. **30

17. In a simple random sample from a population that’s approximately normally distributed, the following data values were collected.

68, 79, 70, 98, 74, 79, 50, 102, 92, 96

Based on this information, the confidence level would be 90% that the population mean is somewhere between

**A. **0.2266

**B. **0.2734

**C. **0.3050

**D. **0.7500

19. A researcher wants to carry out a hypothesis test involving the mean for a sample of *n *= 20. While the true value of the population standard deviation is unknown, the researcher is reasonably sure that the population is normally distributed. Given this information, which of the following statements would be *correct?*

**A. **The researcher should use the *z-*test because the population is assumed to be normally distributed.

**B. **The *t*-test should be used because α and μ are unknown.

**C. **The *t*-test should be used because σ is unknown and the sample size is small.

**D. **The researcher should use the *z-*test because the sample size is less than 30.

20. For 1996, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has estimated that American consumers would have eaten, on average, 2.6 pounds of cottage cheese throughout the course of that year. Based on a longitudinal study of 98 randomly selected people conducted during 1996, the National Center for Cottage Cheese Studies found an average cottage cheese consumption of 2.75 pounds and a standard deviation of *s *= 14 ounces. Given this information, which of the following statements would be *correct *concerning a two-tail test at the 0.05 level of significance?

**A. **We can conclude that the average cottage cheese consumption in America is at least 0.705 pound more or less than 2.75 pounds per person per year.

**B. **We can conclude that we can’t reject the claim that the average cottage cheese consumption in America is 2.6 pounds per person per year.

**C. **We can conclude that the average cottage cheese consumption in America is not 2.6 pounds per person per year.

**D. **We can conclude that the average cottage cheese consumption in America is actually 2.75 pounds per person per year.
