Question no. 1:
Test the hypothesis that the mean of a normal population with known variance 70 is 31, if a sample of size 13 gave x ̅ = 34. Let the alternative hypothesis be H1: µ > 31, and let α = 0.10.Questions no. 2:
Explain in detail why it is not a good statistical procedure to perform several ttest on pairs of means , when several means are to be compared. Suggest the alternative statistical procedure and also give its assumptions.

Solution:
Question no. 1:
Test the hypothesis that the mean of a normal population with known variance 70 is 31, if a sample of size 13 gave x ̅ = 34. Let the alternative hypothesis be H1: µ > 31, and let α = 0.10.
Solution:
Formulation of Hypothesis:
Ho: µ = 31
H1: µ > 31
Level of Significance:
α = 0.10
Test Statistics:
z=(x ̅μ)/(σ⁄√n)
Calculation:
z=(3431)/(√70⁄√13)z = 1.29.
Critical Region:
Reject Ho, if
Z > Zα
1.29 > Z0.10
1.29 > 1.28
We reject Ho.
Conclusion:
Since 1.29 > 1.28 fall in the critical region, so we reject Ho.
Questions no. 2:
Explain in detail why it is not a good statistical procedure to perform several ttest on pairs of means , when several means are to be compared. Suggest the alternative statistical procedure and also give its assumptions.
Solution:
Whenever we compare more than two population means, we apply the twosample ttest to all possible pairwise comparisons of means. For example, if we wish to compare 4 population means, there will be 6 pairs and to test the hypothesis that all four population means are equal, would require six twosample ttest. This type of multiple twosample ttest has two disadvantages. First, the procedure is difficult and time consuming and secondly, the level of significance increases as the number of ttest increases. Thus, a series of twosample ttest is not a good procedure. ANOVA is a technique that measure the variations between the means.
Assumptions of ANOVA:
1: Experimental errors are normally distributed.
2: Equal variance between the treatments.
3: Samples are independent.
