Three hundred consumers between 21 and 49 years old were randomly selected. After sampling a new wine cooler, each was asked to rate the appeal of the phrase: “Not sweet like wine coolers, not filling like beer, and more refreshing than wine or mixed drinks” as it relates to the new wine cooler. The rating was made on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 representing “extremely appealing” and with 1 representing “not at all appealing”. As a manager overseeing the development of the concept, you bottle the wine cooler and placed it into distribution in one test store. Your manager has asked you to assess the data and determine the most likely customer based on the ratings. Additionally, your manager would like you to review sales in the test store. Use the Week 3 Data Set to create and calculate the following in Excel®: Estimate the probability that a randomly selected 21 to 49 year old consumer: Would give the phrase a rating of 5 Would give the phrase a rating of 3 or higher Is in the 21-24 age group Is a male who gives the phrase a rating of 4 Is a 35 to 49 year old who gives the phrase a rating of 1 Based on the probabilities for the ratings of 4 and 5, which age/gender demographic would be the best target audience for the new concept? Create a probability distribution using the data which shows how many cartons of the wine cooler were bought per customer in a month. Calculate the mean and the standard deviation of your probability distribution.

Use the Week 4 Data Set to create and calculate the following in ExcelÂŽ: Determine the range of values in which you would expect to find the average weekly sales for the entire sales force in your company 90% of the time. Calculate the impact of increasing the confidence level to 95%? Calculate the impact of increasing the sample size to 150, assuming the same mean and standard deviation, but allowing the confidence level to remain at 90%? Based on the calculated confidence interval for weekly sales on the sample of 50 reps at a 90% confidence level:


Calculate both Reps’ average weekly performance and highlight if it is greater than the population mean. You want to determine whether there is a statistically different average weekly sales between Sales Rep A and Sales Rep B. Create Null and Alternative Hypothesis statements that would allow you to determine whether their sales performance is statistically different or not. Use a significance level of .05 to conduct a t-test of independent samples to compare the average weekly sales of the two candidates. Calculate the p-value? Considering that individual you did not promote: Determine whether this person’s average weekly sales are greater than the average weekly sales for the 50 sales reps whose data you used to develop confidence intervals. Create Null and Alternative Hypothesis statements that would allow you to determine whether the new Sales Manager’s weekly average sales are greater than the sample of Sales Reps. Use a significance level of .05 to conduct a t-test of independent samples to compare the average weekly sales of both. Calculate the p-value?

Customized Work for QNT 275 https://uopcourses.com/sd_product/qnt-275-weekly-practiceconnect-knowledge-check-apply-connect-weekly-case/ Based on a random sample of 25 units of product X, the average weight is 102 lb and the sample standard deviation is 10 lb. We would like to decide if there is enough evidence to establish that the average weight for the population of product X is greater than 100 lb. Therefore, the alternative hypothesis can be written as HA: Îź > 100. (Assume the population is normally distributed.) True False The null hypothesis is a statement that will be accepted only if there is convincing sample evidence that it is true. True False A research study investigated differences between male and female students. Based on the study results, we can assume the population mean and standard deviation for the GPA of male students are Âľ = 3.5 and Ď&#x192; = 0.5. Suppose a random sample of 100 male students is selected and the GPA for each student is calculated. What is 7.0 3.5 0.05 0.5 If we have a sample size of 100 and the estimate of the population proportion is .10, we can estimate the sampling distribution of with a normal distribution. True False


The power of a statistical test is the probability of rejecting the null hypothesis when it is false. True False A recent study conducted by the state government attempts to determine whether the voting public supports a further increase in cigarette taxes. The opinion poll recently sampled 1,500 voting age citizens. 1,020 of the sampled citizens were in favor of an increase in cigarette taxes. The state government would like to decide if there is enough evidence to establish whether the proportion of citizens supporting an increase in cigarette taxes is significantly greater than .66. What is the alternative hypothesis? p â&#x2030;¤ .66 p < .66 p = .66 p > .66 The t distribution always has n degrees of freedom. True False It has been reported that the average time to download the home page from a government website was 0.9 seconds. Suppose that the download times were normally distributed with a standard deviation of 0.3 seconds. If random samples of 23 download times are selected, describe the shape of the sampling distribution and how it was determined. skewed; the original population is not a normal distribution cannot be determined with the information that is given normal; the original population is normal normal; size of sample meets the Central Limit Theorem requirement A recent study conducted by the state government attempts to determine whether the voting public supports a further increase in cigarette taxes.

citizens. 1,020 of the sampled citizens were in favor of an increase in cigarette taxes. The state government would like to decide if there is enough evidence to establish whether the proportion of citizens supporting an increase in cigarette taxes is significantly greater than .66. Identify the null hypothesis. p > .66 p â&#x2030; .66 p â&#x2030;¤ .66 In the upcoming election for governor, the most recent poll, based on 900 respondents, predicts that the incumbent will be reelected with 55 percent of the votes. From the 900 respondents, how many indicated that they would not vote for the current governor or indicated that they were undecided? 405 400 450 495 It has been reported that the average time to download the home page from a government website was 0.9 seconds. Suppose that the download times were normally distributed with a standard deviation of 0.3 seconds. If random samples of 36 download times are selected, calculate the mean of the sampling distribution of the sampling mean. 0.3 0.05 0.15 0.9 For a given hypothesis test, if we do not reject H0, and H0 is true, no error has been committed. a Type I error has been committed. a Type II error has been committed. a Type III error has been committed.


According to the Central Limit Theorem, if a sample size is at least _____, then for most sampled populations, we can conclude that the sample means are approximately normal. 50 25 20 30 If the sampled population distribution is skewed, then in most cases the sampling distribution of the mean can be approximated by the normal distribution if the sample size n is at least 30. True False The sampling distribution of a sample statistic is the probability distribution of the population of all possible values of the sample statistic. True False A(n) _____________ hypothesis is the statement that is being tested. It usually represents the status quo, and it is not rejected unless there is convincing sample evidence that it is false. true research alternative null The diameter of small Nerf balls manufactured overseas is expected to be approximately normally distributed with a mean of 5.2 inches and a standard deviation of .08 inches. Suppose a random sample of 20 balls is selected. Calculate the mean of the sampling distribution of the sample mean. 0.8 5.2 0.08 0.018


If a population distribution is known to be normal, then it follows that None of the other choices is correct. the sample mean must equal the population mean. the sample mean must equal the population mean, the sample mean must equal the population mean for large samples, and the sample standard deviation must equal the population standard deviation. the sample standard deviation must equal the population standard deviation. the sample mean must equal the population mean for large samples. If p = .8 and n = 50, then we can conclude that the sampling distribution of is approximately a normal distribution. True False As the sample size increases, the standard deviation of the sampling distribution increases. True False

QNT 275 Week 5 Apply Connect Week 5 Case You are the manager of a retail store. You want to investigate how metrics can improve the way you manage your business. Use the Week 5 Data Set to create and calculate the following in ExcelÂŽ: Conduct a goodness of fit analysis which assesses orders of a specific item by size (expected) and items you received by size (observed). Conduct a hypothesis test with the objective of determining if there is a difference between what you ordered and what you received at the .05 level of significance. Identify the null and alternative hypotheses. What is your conclusion? Generate a scatter plot, the correlation coefficient, and the linear equation that evaluates whether a relationship exists between the number of times a customer visited the store in the past 6 months and the total amount of money the customer spent.


Set up a hypothesis test to evaluate the strength of the relationship between the two variables. Use a level of significance of .05. Use the regression line formula to forecast how much a customer might spend on merchandise if that customer visited the store 13 times in a 6 month period. Consider the average monthly sales of 2014, $1310, as your base then Calculate indices for each month for the next two years (based on the 24 months of data). Graph a time series plot. In the Data Analysis Toolpak, use Excelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Exponential Smoothing option. Apply a damping factor of .5, to your monthly sales data, then create a new time series graph that compares the original and the revised monthly sales data. ORDERS VS.
