Questions 21-40 are concerned with the following situation. An experimenter wishes to compare the sales
of two restaurants. She randomly selects eleven days from last year and records the sales of each restaurant
on those days. The data (in thousands of dollars) are:
Day
Restaurant
1 2 3 4 5 6
7 8 9 10 11
1:2.15, 2.16, 2.13, 2.25, 2.20, 2.18, 2.27, 2.21, 2.23, 2.16, 2.20
2:2.32, 2.34, 2.30, 2.40, 2.34, 2.20, 2.42, 2.36, 2.36, 2.30, 2.34

in fact the mean daily sales differs from $2,000 is a(n) ____________________
A. indication that you need to get out more often (Hint: this is a wrong answer).
B. a type II error
C. a type I error.
D. a correct decision.
E. the level of significance.
32. The level of significance, alpha, when testing that "the mean sales are the same for the two restaurants"
would be

are normally distributed?

hypothesis that the mean sales of restaurant 2 exceeds $2,100, what would
be the rejection region if alpha = 0.05?
A. Reject the null hypothesis if the test statistic > t(10, 0.025) or < -t(10, 0.025)
