Question 3 of 40 
2.5 Points 
In 1990, the average duration of longdistance telephone calls originating in one town was 9.4 minutes. A longdistance telephone company wants to perform a hypothesis test to determine whether the average duration of longdistance phone calls has changed from the 1990 mean of 9.4 minutes. The mean duration for a random sample of 50 calls originating in the town was 8.6 minutes. Does the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean call duration, µ, is different from the 1990 mean of 9.4 minutes? Perform the appropriate hypothesis test using a significance level of 0.01. Assume that s = 4.8 minutes.
A. With a z of 1.2 there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean
value has changed from the 1990 mean of 9.4 minutes. 

B. With a Pvalue of 0.2302 there is not sufficient evidence to conclude
that the mean value is less than the 1990 mean of 9.4 minutes. 

C. With a Pvalue of 0.2302 there is sufficient evidence to conclude that
the mean value is less than the 1990 mean of 9.4 minutes. 

D. With a z of –1.2 there is not sufficient evidence to conclude that the
mean value has changed from the 1990 mean of 9.4 minutes.

A researcher wants to check the claim that convicted burglars spend an average of 18.7 months in jail. She takes a random sample of 35 such cases from court files and finds that months. Assume that the population standard deviation is 7 months. Test the null hypothesis that µ = 18.7 at the 0.05 significance level.
A.Do not reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the claim that the mean is different from 18.7 months is supported.


B.Do not reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the claim that the mean is different from 18.7 months cannot be supported.


C.Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the claim that the mean is different from 18.7 months is supported.


D.Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the claim that the mean is different from 18.7 months cannot be supported.

A. Since the test statistic is greater than the critical z, there is sufficient evidence to accept the null hypothesis and to support the claim that the mean content of acetaminophen is 600 mg.


B. Since the test statistic is greater than the critical z, there is sufficient evidence to reject the null hypothesis and to support the claim that the mean content of acetaminophen is not 600 mg.


C. Since the test statistic is less than the critical z, there is sufficient evidence to reject the null hypothesis and to support the claim that the mean content of acetaminophen is not 600 mg.
