Problem #7
Crisostomo, Leony Rose
Cruz, Ryan Ivan
A TV manufacturer claims that the
life span of its regular TV is 12 years
with a standard deviation of 1.2
years. Using a random sample of
their 20 TV sets , the average life
span is found to be 11.2 years. Test
the hypothesis tat the TV sets life
span of 12 years as claimed by the
manufacturer is true at = 0.1
A TV manufacturer claims that the
life span of its regular TV is 12 years

their 20 TV sets , the average life
span is found to be 11.2 years. Test
the hypothesis that the TV sets life
span of 12 years as claimed by the

A TV manufacturer claims that the
life span of its regular TV is 12 years
with a standard deviation of 1.2
years. Using a random sample of

span is found to be 11.2 years. Test
the hypothesis tat the TV sets life
span of 12 years as claimed by the
manufacturer is true at = 0.1

Given:

= 12 n = 20
x = 11.2 = 1.2
= 0.01
A TV manufacturer claims that the
life span of its regular TV is 12 years
with a standard deviation of 1.2
years. Using a random sample of
their 20 TV sets , the average life
span is found to be 11.2 years. Test
the hypothesis tat the TV sets life
span of 12 years as claimed by the
manufacturer is true at = 0.1

Step 1:
:=x
There is no significant difference
between the life span of regular TV sets
and the average life span of the sample TV
sets.
:x
There is a significant difference between
the life span of regular TV sets and the
average life span of the sample TV sets.
A TV manufacturer claims that the
life span of its regular TV is 12 years
with a standard deviation of 1.2
years. Using a random sample of
their 20 TV sets , the average life
span is found to be 11.2 years. Test
the hypothesis tat the TV sets life
span of 12 years as claimed by the
manufacturer is true at = 0.1
Step 2:
t-test, since n <
30 and the
standard
deviation is
given
A TV manufacturer claims that the
life span of its regular TV is 12 years
with a standard deviation of 1.2
years. Using a random sample of
their 20 TV sets , the average life
span is found to be 11.2 years. Test
the hypothesis tat the TV sets life
span of 12 years as claimed by the
manufacturer is true at = 0.1

Step 3:
Critical Value: 2.861 (two-tailed, =

Reject Reject
A TV manufacturer claims that the

span is found to be 11.2 years. Test
the hypothesis tat the TV sets life

Step 5: Reject
:x
There is a significant difference between
