# A manufacturer claims that the mean amount of juice in its 16 ounce

A manufacturer claims that the mean amount of juice in its 16 ounce bottles is 16.1 ounces. A consumer advocacy group wants to perform a hypothesis test to determine whether the mean amount is actually less than this. The mean volume of juice for a random sample of 70 bottles was 15.94 ounces. Do the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean amount of juice for all 16-ounce bottles, µ, is less than 16.1 ounces? Perform the appropriate hypothesis test using a significance level of 0.10. Assume that s = 0.9 ounces.
A.
The z of – 1.49 provides sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean amount of juice is less than 16.1 oz.
B.
The z of – 1.49 does not provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean amount of juice is less than 16.1 oz.
C.
The z of – 0.1778 does not provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean amount of juice is less than 16.1 oz.
D.
The z of – 0.1778 provides sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean amount of juice is less than 16.1 oz.

In 1990, the average duration of long-distance telephone calls originating in one town was 9.4 minutes. A long-distance telephone company wants to perform a hypothesis test to determine whether the average duration of long-distance phone calls has changed from the 1990 mean of 9.4 minutes.
