1.

The manager at Unaco Supermarket claims that more than 75% of customers pay at
cash at the cashier counter. In a random sample of 20 customers, 17 customers pay by
cash.

Perform a 2 goodness-of-fit test, at the 1% significance level, to determine whether


the data fits a Poisson distribution with a mean of 2.
You may use the probability distribution of a Poisson random variable with mean 2
given below:
Number of occurrence

Car panels are spray-painted by a machine. The paint thickness on a car panels is
normally distrbuted with a mean of mm and a standard deviation of 0.035 mm. A
random sample of 64 points paint thickness on a car panels gives a mean of 0.195
mm. Test the null hypothesis H0: = 0.200 mm against the alternative hypothesis H1:
0.200 mm at the 5% significance level.
