Scenario: The following data (listed horizontally in the order the bottles are filled) represent the amount
of zinc dispensed in a sample of 45 bottles of a certain brand of multivitamins with an advertised zinc
content of 2mg.

2.11 2.09 2.07 2.07 2.06 2.06 2.05 2.04 2.04


2.03 2.03 2.02 2.03 2.02 2.02 2.01 2.01 2.01

1.96 1.96 1.95 1.95 1.95 1.94 1.94 1.94 1.91

Using 0.05 level of significance, is there evidence that the mean amount of zinc in the bottles of this
multivitamins is different from 2mg.

Scenario: A quality control supervisor of a light bulb took a sample of 12 light bulbs from a shift and
measured the life in hours as follows: 563, 491, 267, 511, 632, 1050, 450, 265, 545, 317, 427, 341. Using
0.05 level of significance, is there evidence that the mean life of these light bulbs is more than 400
hours?

Scenario: According to a recent survey, the tuition fee of state colleges will rise in the coming school
year. Thirty-five state colleges were asked to give their expected increase (in percentages) in tuition
fees. On average, the tuition fee increase for incoming freshmen is 5.7% and 11.5% for old students.
Assume that the population standard deviation of increased tuition fees for incoming freshmen is 6%
and for old students is 5%. Using 0.05 level of significance, is there evidence that the average tuition fee
for incoming freshmen is expected to increase more than the average tuition fee for old students?

Scenario: A company wishes to compare the delivery time in days of two of its online shops. Data
collected are summarized as follows:
Shop A Shop B
Mean 34.3 days 43.7 days
Standard Deviation 2.4 days 3.1 days
Sample Size 41 31

Using 0.01 level of significance, is there evidence of a difference in the average delivery time between
the two online shops, assuming equality of population variances?

Scenario: The supervisor of an assembly plant is interested in determining whether different training
methods have an effect on the assembly time of the workers. He randomly assigns 42 newly hired
workers into two groups of 21. The first group takes Training Program 1 and the second group receives
Training Program 2. After the training, the workers are then evaluated on the length of assembly time
(in minutes). The results are as follows:

Training Program 1 Training Program 2


16.7 15.6 22.4 22.4 13.8 23.7
19.3 18.0 16.5 18.2 18.0 17.4
16.8 21.7 17.7 19.3 20.8 23.2
17.7 17.4 16.2 15.6 17.1 20.1
19.8 16.4 18.2 18.0 28.2 12.3
19.3 16.8 19.3 21.7 20.8 15.2
16.0 18.5 30.7 30.7 24.7 16.0
If the variances in the population assembly time are assumed equal, is there evidence of a difference
between the average assembly time of workers trained under Program 1 and those trained in Program
2? Use a 0.05 level of significance.

Scenario: Suppose that an experiment is designed to compare the difference in the brightness of color
(measured in brightness numbers) of a certain grade of paint under two different conditions – treated
with Formula A and treated with Formula B. Based on past records, the standard deviation in the
brightness of colors is 10.2 for those treated with Formula A and 6.4 for those treated with Formula B. In
the experiment, 40 cans of the paint are randomly assigned – 20 are treated with Formula A and 20 with
Formula B. The sample mean for the Formula A is 163. 4 and the sample mean for Formula B is 156.9.
Using these results, test if there is a significant difference in the mean brightness of color between the
paints with Formula A and the paints treated with Formula B. Use a 0.05 level of significance.

Scenario: A homeowner wants to compare the yearly rental rates of 5-bedroom mansions in two
communities. A sample of 60 listings in a community 1 and 99 listings in community 2 yields the
following results:

Community 1 Community 2
Mean 191330 172340
Standard Deviation 32600 16920
Sample Size 60 99

Using 0.05 level of significance, is there evidence of a difference in the average yearly rental rates in the
two communities?

purchased from the two bookstores?

Scenario: A drug is designed to lower bad cholesterol. To test, subjects were given the drug and their
levels of bad cholesterol were measured before and after the drug was taken. The sample data are as
follows:

Subject 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
Before 155 185 209 193 179 170 198 200 174 182 169
After 145 159 183 176 159 167 177 191 170 151 146

Using 0.01 level of significance, is there evidence of a difference between the before and after readings.
