Volume of Concrete Use for Sub-Structure Construction (m3/day)

Starting with Sample 1, we wish to test the claim that volume of concrete use for substructure construction is more than 30 m3/day. By selecting a sample of 35 days of
concreating, we find the mean is 24.66 m3/day, with a standard deviation of 6.77 and try to
find any evidence to support the claim by using alpha 0.05.

Step 1
H 0 : =3 0
H 1 : >30 (Claim)

Step 2
By using one-tailed test, with n = 35, s = 6.77 and = 0.05. A Case C scenario, using zdistribution table and find the critical value is t c >1.6449 .
Decision Rule: Reject

H 0 if test value, Z fall in the rejection region

Step 4
The test value is -4.6664 which is lower than the critical value, t c >1.6449 . The decision is
to do not reject the null hypothesis

Step 5
There is not enough evidence to support the claim that the average volume of concrete use for
sub-structure construction on Sample 1 is more than 30 m3/day.

Processing to Sample 2, we wish to test the claim that volume of concrete use for substructure construction is more than 30 m3/day. By selecting a sample of 35 days of
concreating, we find the mean is 63.57 m3/day, with a standard deviation of 20 and try to find
any evidence to support the claim by using alpha 0.05.

Step 1
H 0 : =3 0
H 1 : >30 (Claim)

Step 2
By using one-tailed test, with n = 35, s = 20 and = 0.05. A Case C scenario, using zdistribution table and find the critical value is t c >1.6449 .
Decision Rule: Reject

Step 4
The test value is 9.930 which is greater than the critical value, t c >1.6449 . The decision is
to reject the null hypothesis

Step 5
There is enough evidence to support the claim that the average volume of concrete use for
sub-structure construction for Sample 2 is more than 30 m3/day.

For the last sample, Sample 3, we wish to test the claim that volume of concrete use
for sub-structure construction is more than 30 m3/day. By selecting a sample of 35 days of
concreating, we find the mean is 43.6 m3/day, with a standard deviation of 17.7 and try to find
any evidence to support the claim by using alpha 0.05.

Step 1
H 0 : =3 0
H 1 : >30 (Claim)

Step 2
By using one-tailed test, with n = 35, s = 17.7 and = 0.05. A Case C scenario, using zdistribution table and find the critical value is t c >1.6449 .
Decision Rule: Reject

H 0 if test value, Z fall in the rejection region

Step 4
The test value is 4.546 which is greater than the critical value, t c >1.6449 . The decision is
to reject the null hypothesis

Step 5
There is enough evidence to support the claim that the average volume of concrete use for
sub-structure construction for Sample 3 is more than 30 m3/day.
