The Redsox were accused of cheating their soda customers by not putting enough soda in the 12 ounce cup. When 15 cups were selected at random, they were found to have a mean of 11.7 ounces with a standard deviation of 0.5 ounces. At the .01 significance level, test the claim that the customers are being cheated.

  1. Interesting. Wouldn't that be nice, so the drink is less likely to spill?

    Z = (mean1 - mean2)/standard error (SE) of difference between means

    SEdiff = √(SEmean1^2 + SEmean2^2)

    SEm = SD/√(n-1)

    If only one SD is provided, you can use just that to determine SEdiff.

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion related to that Z score.
