 Question 2 of 23 1.0 Points

A company operates four machines during three shifts each day. From production records, the data in the table below were collected. At the .05 level of significance test to determine if the number of breakdowns is independent of the shift.

 Machine Shift A B C D 1 41 20 12 16 2 31 11 9 14 3 15 17 16 10

A.The number of breakdowns is dependent on the shift, because the test value 11.649 is less than the critical value of 12.592.

B.The claim that the number of breakdowns is independent of the shift cannot be rejected, because the test value 11.649 is less than the critical value of 12.592.

C.The number of breakdowns is dependent on the shift, because the p-value is .07.

D.The number of breakdowns is independent of the shift, because the test value 12.592 is greater than the critical value of 11.649.

In February 2002 the Argentine peso lost 70% of its value compared to the United States dollar. This devaluation drastically raised the price of imported products. According to a survey conducted by AC Nielsen in April 2002, 68% of the consumers in Argentina were buying fewer products than before the devaluation, 24% were buying the same number of products, and 8% were buying more products. Furthermore, in a trend toward purchasing less-expensive brands, 88% indicated that they had changed the brands they purchased. Suppose the following complete set of results were reported. Use the following data to answer this question.

 Number of Products Purchased Brands Purchased Fewer Same More Total Same 10 14 24 48 Changed 262 82 8 352 Total 272 96 32 400

What is the probability that a consumer selected at random purchased fewer products than before? Place your answer, rounded to 4 decimal places, in the blank.

The ABC battery company claims that their batteries last 100 hours, on average. You decide to conduct a test to see if the company's claim is true. You believe that the mean life may be different from the 100 hours the company claims. You decide to collect data on the average battery life (in hours) of a random sample of n = 20 batteries. Some of the information related to the hypothesis test is presented  below.

Test of H0= 100 versus H1  100
Sample mean 98.5
Std error of mean 0.777

Assuming the life length of batteries is normally distributed, what is the p-value associated with this test?  Place your answer, rounded to 3 decimal places in the blank. For example, 0.234 would be a legitimate entry.

An ice cream vendor sells three flavors: chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. Forty five percent of the sales are chocolate, while 30% are strawberry, with the rest vanilla flavored. Sales are by the cone or the cup. The percentages of cones sales for chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla, are 75%, 60%, and 40%, respectively. For a randomly selected sale, define the following events:

= chocolate chosen

= strawberry chosen

= vanilla chosen

= ice cream on a cone

ice cream in a cup

Find the probability that the ice cream was strawberry flavor, given that it was sold in a cup. Placeyour answer, rounded to 4 decimal places, in the blank. For exampe, 0.3456 would be a legitimate entry.
