In order for a new drug to be sold on the market, the variance of the active ingredient in each dose should be 0.02mg. A random sample of 25 tablets with a dosage strength of 48.42⁢mg is taken. The variance of the active ingredient from this sample is found to be 0.0048. Does the data suggests at α=0.01 that the variance of the drug in the tablets is less than the desired amount? Assume the population is normally distributed.

Step 1 of 5 :

State the null and alternative hypotheses. Round to four decimal places when necessary

step 2 of 4: Compute the value of the test statistic. Round your answer to two decimal places.

Step 3 of 4: Determine the decision rule for rejecting the null hypothesis H0. Round the numerical portion of your answer to three decimal places.

Step 4 of 4: Make the decision for the hypothesis test. Reject or Fail to Reject Null Hypothesis

step 1

To Test :-

H0 :-

H1 :-

Step 2

Test Statistic :-

χ2 = ( ( 25-1 ) * 0.0048 ) / 0.02
χ2 = 5.76

Step 3
Test Criteria :-
Reject null hypothesis if
= 10.856

Step 4
= 5.76 < 10.856 , hence we reject the null hypothesis
Conclusion :- We Reject null hypothesis.

A drug, which is used for treating cancer, has potentially dangerous side effects if it is taken in doses which are larger than 46.33mg, the required dosage for the treatment. It is important that the variance of the amount of the active ingredient is 0.03. 10 tablets are randomly selected and the amount of the drug in each tablet is measured. It is determined that the variance of the amount of active ingredient is 0.0061mg. Does the data suggests at...

Using traditional methods it takes 11.3 hours to receive a basic flying license. A new license training method using Computer Aided Instruction (CAI) has been proposed. A researcher used the technique on 20 students and observed that they had a mean of 11.6 hours with a standard deviation of 1.1. Is there evidence at the 0.05 level that the technique performs differently than the traditional method? Assume the population distribution is approximately normal. Step 1 of 5: State the null...
