A food inspector examined 16 jars of a certain brand of jam to determine the percent of foreign impurities. The following data were recorded: 2.4 2.3 3.1 2.2 2.3 1.2 1.0 2.4 1.7 1.1 4.2 1.9 1.7 3.6 1.6 2.3 Using the normal approximation to the binomial distribution, perform a sign test at the 0.05 level of significance to test the null hypothesis that the median percent of impurities in this brand of jam is 2.5% against the alternative that the median percent of impurities is not 2.5%.
Chapter 2, Part One: Frequency Distributions, Histograms, and Related Topics 1. Frequency Distribution: paritions data into classes and assigns each class a frequency a. Frequency Tables: displays information in a frequency distribution, by listing each class along with its frequency b. Constructing a Frequency Table i. Decide on a number of classes between 5 and 15 ii. Calculate the class width 1. (Highest ValueLowest Value) / (# of Classes) a. (# of Classes) What was chosen in step one b. then,
