2) 1) z of 1.75 from the data is beyond z critical of 1.645 from the .05 level of significance, reject the null hypothesis, average accounts receivables could be larger than the $375 stated on the balance sheet.


3) t of 1.75 from the data is not beyond t critical of 2.064 from the .05 level of significance (divided by 2), accept the null hypothesis, accounts receivables could equal the $375 stated on the balance sheet.

5) t of -2.69 from the data is not beyond t critical of -2.977 from the .01 level of significance (divided by two), accept the null hypothesis, the time it takes to make parts does not differ for the two shifts.


6) t of -5.08 from the data is beyond t critical of -2.132 from the .05 level of significance, reject the null hypothesis, scores improved.


7) 5.0 < 13.28, accept the null hypothesis at the .01 level of significance, absences happen equally throughout the week.
