The average life span of a Golden Retriever is said to be 9.

The average life span of a Golden Retriever is said to be 9.6 years. In a random sample of 15 Golden Retrievers, the following life spans were found:
6.8 10.2 9.5 13 9.9 7.0 8.3 8.9 11.2 10 9.8 13 9.8 9.5 8.7
At a 5% significance level, if we do a complete hypothesis test to test eh claim that the average life span of Golden Retrievers is 9.5, the p-value and conclusion are:
p-value = 0.8187, fail to reject the null hypothesis
p-value = 0.8153, fail to reject the null hypothesis
p-value = 0.8187, reject the null hypothesis
p-value = 0.8153, reject the null hypothesis

Given:
The average lifespan of a golden retriever is a set to be 9.6 years in the random sample of 15 golden retriever the following life span were found.
From tbe given data
Sample size, \(\displaystyle{n}={15}\)
\(\displaystyle\sum{x}={145.6}\)
Sample mean, \(\displaystyle\overline{{{x}}}=\sum\frac{{x}}{{n}}=\frac{{145.6}}{{15}}={9.7067}\)
Sample standard deviation, \(\displaystyle{s}={1.7689}\)
Population mean, \(\displaystyle\mu={9.6}\)
Hypothesis test:
The null and alternative hypothesis is
\(\displaystyle{H}_{{0}}:\mu={9.6}\)
\(\displaystyle{H}_{{a}}:\mu\ne{9.6}\)
Test statistics is
\(\displaystyle{z}={\frac{{\overline{{{x}}}-\mu}}{{\frac{\sigma}{\sqrt{{n}}}}}}={\frac{{{9.7067}-{9.6}}}{{\frac{{1.7689}}{\sqrt{{{15}}}}}}}={0.2336}\)
\(\displaystyle\therefore{z}={0.23}\)
p-value for two tailed:
p-value \(\displaystyle={2}{p}{\left({z}{>}{0.23}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle={2}\times{0.409046}\)...(from z-table)
\(\displaystyle={0.8181}\stackrel{\sim}{=}{0.8187}\)
\(\displaystyle\therefore\) p-value \(\displaystyle={0.8187}\)

Since p-value is greater than significance level 0.05, we fail to reject null hypothesis.
p-value = 0.8187, fail to reject the null hypothesis.
Therefore the correct option is A

One reason for the increase in the life span over the years has been the advances in medical technology. The average life span for American women from Email-trough 2007 is given by \(\displaystyle{W}{\left({t}\right)}={49.9}+{17.1}{\ln{{t}}}{\left({1}\leq{t}\right)}\) where W(t) is measured in years and t is measured in 20-year intervals, with t=1 corresponding to the beginning of 1907.
a. Show that W is increasing on (1, 6).
b. What can you say about the concavity of the graph of W on the interval (1, 6)?
