7. The mean life of a sample of 10 electric bulbs was found to be 1456 hours with a standard deviation of 423 hours. A second sample of 17 bulbs chosen from a different batch showed a mean life of 1280 hours with a standard deviation of 398 hours. Is there a significant difference between the means of the two batches ?

MS-8 : QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS FOR MANAGERIAL APPLICATIONS
SECTION - A
1. The cost accountant of a company has derived the following expression relating total cost C to
the number of units (x) of a product.
C=1440 +125x + 0.1x2
Find :
(a) The number of units (x) that will minimise the average cost.
(b) The value of average cost and total cost corresponding to above number of units.
2. The residents of Lucknow city were surveyed recently to determine readership of newspapers
available. 55% of the residents read the morning paper, 65% read the evening paper, and 30% read both newspapers. Find the probability that a resident selected reads either the morning or
evening paper or both the papers.
3. In a factory, four workers are assigned to complete an order received for dispatching 2000 boxes of a particular commodity. Worker A takes 10 minutes per box, B takes 15 minutes per box,
C takes 20 minutes per box and D takes 25 minutes per box. Find the average time taken
per box by the group of workers.
4. An auto company decided to introduce a new six cylinder car whose mean petrol consumption is claimed to be lower than that of the existing auto engine. It was found that mean petrol
consumption for the 100 cars was 15 km per litre with the standard deviation of 5 km per litre.
Test for the company at 5% level of significance whether the claim that the new car petrol
consumption is 14.50 km per litre on the average is acceptable. The critical value of Z at 5% level
of significance is 1.96.
5. Define Hypothesis. Explain various types of errors in testing of Hypothesis. Describe various steps involved in the "Hypothesis Testing".
6. Write short notes on any three of the following : 3x5
(a) Polynomial Function
(b) Median
(c) Criterion of pessimism
(d) Cluster sampling
(e) Delphi method of forecasting
SECTION - B
7. Using the method of least squares, find the regression equation of x on y for the data given in the table below :
x 1 2 3 4 y 6 9 12 15 18 And from the regression equation obtained, find the value of x corresponding to y = 20.
8. Solve the following system of non-homogeneous linear equations using Cramer's rule : x + 2y — z = —1 3x + 8y + 2z = 28 4x + 9y + z =14
