1. The manufacturer of electric bulbs has established that the average life of the bulbs that his

firm produces is 1450 hours with a Standard Deviation of 150 hours. The production of bulbs

are closely monitored so that the bulbs’ lifetime are maintained close to the average. The

manufacturer would not want the bulbs’ lifetime s to fall too much below the average as this

affects the quality. Neither does he want the lifetime to be much higher as this will reduce

sales. Occasionally, he takes a random sample of bulbs to see if the average lifetime of bulbs

may have significantly changed (that is, higher or lower than the average). On one particular

occasion, he took a sample of 100 bulbs and found the average to be 1390 hours. At 5% level

of Significance, does the manufacturer have reason to believe that the average lifetime of

bulbs manufactured by his company has changed?

Students whose scores were equal to or better than the cut-off score were accepted. The rest

were turned down. The average score of first year students in the entrance examination

when it was still being administered was established to be 80%. Due to a dwindling

population, however, the entrance examinations were suspended for the past three years.

Because of the suspension, one would think that the quality of first year students who are

being accepted has diminished. However, the Dean has observed that the college continues

to attract quite a number of students with good grades from good high schools, due in part

to the college’s continued commitment to quality instruction and facilities. The Dean is

curious as to whether the quality of freshmen students has changed compared to the years

when entrance examinations were being administered. To test his hypothesis, he takes a small

random sample of 15 freshmen students and administers the same entrance examination to

them. He finds that their average score is 83% with a standard deviation of 5%. Using 1% Level

of Significance, has the quality of freshmen students changed, based on the result of the test

scores of the examination that was just administered?

3. The manufacturing sector of flashlight batteries produces batteries with an average life of 35

hours. One manufacturer claims that the average life of his batteries exceeds the established

standard of 35 hours. A mining firm would like to buy a fairly large quantity of batteries from

the manufacturer if his claim is tested to be true. A random sample of 100 flashlight batteries is

tested. It is found that the average life of the sample batteries is 38 hours with a standard

deviation of 5 hours. At 1% Level of Significance, do you think that the mining firm will decide

to buy from said manufacturer?

1. An agricultural research institute is studying on two new varieties of palay both of which are

reputedly high-yielding varieties. There are some studies which suggest that the difference in

the yield per hectare may be significant. The head of the institute decides to find out if there

is, in fact, a significant difference in yield. Forty hectares are planted to variety A and thirty

hectares are planted to variety B. Both varieties are grown under identical laboratory

conditions. At harvest time, the results are:

Variety A Variety B

Average Yield per hectare 250 cavans 240 cavans

Standard Deviation 20 cavans 15 cavans

At 1% Level of Significance, is there a significant difference in the yield of the two palay

varieties?

2. A professor in Statistics teaches the subject in a conventional way in one of his classes.

However, he has began to teach Statistics with the use of computers using Statistics software

in a second class. At the end of the course, he gives the same examination to both classes.

He has observed that students who are taught with computers tend to get higher scores

during examinations although this is not true everytime. It even happens that there are

students taught the conventional way who get higher scores than some students who are

taught with the use of computers. The professor decides to test the hypothesis, at 1% Level of

Significance, that students who are taught Statistics with computers learn better, that is, they

score higer during examinations. He takes a random sample of 15 corrected final

examination papers in the first class and 10 randomly picked and corrected final examination

papers in the second class. He gets the average and standard deviation for each sample.

The results are:

Conventional Method Use of Computers

Sample Mean 84 92

Standard Deviation 8 5

Sample Size 15 10

1. The manager of a training outfit for sales representatives would like to know if there might be a

significant difference among three methods of instruction (Methods A, B, and C) that are

employed for trainees. A different method is used for each of three separate groups of trainees.

The same topic is discussed for all groups and the same set of examination questions are given at

the end of the training seminar. A sample of the examination scores of six trainees from each of

the groups is taken. Based on a Level of Significance of 1%, test to determine if there is a

significant difference in the scores of the three groups (that is, if there is a significant difference in

the methods of instruction employed).

Method A Method B Method C

82 80 92

93 86 96

90 78 85

88 82 90

85 76 89

92 84 94

2. A subject in Economics is taught in the graduate school to three different small classes of

students by three instructors. At the end of the term, the students are given the same

departmental examination questions. The final grades of the students are shown below. At 5%

Level of Significance, is there a significant difference in the scores of the three groups? (Note:

The test will determine if the methods of instruction are equally effective or not).

Section 1 Section 2 Section 3

80 79 90

81 88 78

86 86 82

88 90 88

80 82 92

3. Three training methods are employed and then compared to determine if there are differences

in the productivity levels of three groups that are trained. A sample of five trainees each is taken

from three groups. The productivity levels are as follows:

Method 1 Method 2 Method 3

85 70 85

60 82 82

75 62 78

80 65 80

65 68 79

At 1% Level of Significance, do the training methods yield significantly different productivity levels

(and therefore, significantly different training methods)?

4. Four groups of three patients each are treated for the same ailment with different medications.

The data below show the number of days it took the patient to get well from the start of

treatment. At 1% Level of Significance, is there a significant difference in the treatment of the

patients? (And therefore a significant difference in the medications?)
