Question
========
A machine fills milk into $500$ml packages. It is suspected that the
machine is not working correctly and that the amount of milk filled differs
from the setpoint $\mu_0 = 500$. A sample of $247$ packages
filled by the machine are collected. The sample mean $\bar{y}$ is equal to
$521.3$ and the sample variance $s^2_{n-1}$ is equal to
$527.08$.
Test the hypothesis that the amount filled corresponds on average to the
setpoint. What is the value of the t-test statistic?
Answerlist
----------
* $1.275$
* $-13.070$
* $-53.309$
* $9.888$
* $14.581$
Solution
========
The t-test statistic is calculated by:
$$
\begin{aligned}
t & = & \frac{\bar y - \mu_0}{\sqrt{\frac{s^2_{n-1}}{n}}}
= \frac{521.3 - 500}{\sqrt{\frac{527.08}{247}}}
= 14.581.
\end{aligned}
$$
The t-test statistic is thus equal to
$14.581$.
