Question

A linear rotary bearing is designed so that the distance between the retaining rings is 0.875 inch. The quality-control manager suspects that the manufacturing process needs to be recalibrated because the mean distance between the retaining rings is greater than 0.875 inch. In a random sample of 36 bearings, he finds the sample mean distance between the retaining rings is 0.876 inch with standard deviation 0.005 inch.
(a) Are the requirements for conducting a hypothesis test satisfied?
(b) State the null and alternative hypotheses.
(c) The quality-control manager decides to use an α = 0.01 level of significance. Why do you think this level of significance was chosen?
