Question

3. Suppose you are testing H0 : = 10 vs H1 : 6= 10: The sample is small (n = 5) and the data come from a normal population. The variance, 2, is unknown. (a) Find the critical value(s) corresponding to = 0:10. (b) You find that t = -1.78. Based on your critical value, what decision do you make regarding the null hypothesis (i.e. do you Reject H0 or Do Not Reject H0)?

Answer #1

3)

Solution :

This is the two tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H_{0} :
= 18

H_{a} :
18

n = 5

df = n - 1 =5 - 1 = 4

t = -1.78

= 0.10

/ 2 = 0.10 / 2 = 0.05

t_{
,df} = t_{0.05 ,4} = +/-2.132

Critical value = +/-2.132

Test statistic < critical value

Fail to reject the null hypothesis (H0)

7. Suppose you are testing H0 : µ = 10 vs H1 : µ 6= 10. The
sample is small (n = 5) and the data come from a normal population.
The variance, σ 2 , is unknown. (a) Find the critical value(s)
corresponding to α = 0.10. (b) You find that t = −1.78. Based on
your critical value, what decision do you make regarding the null
hypothesis (i.e. do you Reject H0 or Do Not Reject H0)?

For each of the following testing scenarios, select your answer
regarding the decision.
(b) H0 : μ = 25 vs. H1 : μ 6= 25 at level a = 0:10.
i. Reject H0
ii. Do not reject H0
iii. Can’t tell
(c) H0 : μ = 25 vs. H1 : μ 6= 25 at level a = 0:05.
i. Do not reject H0
ii. Reject H0
iii. Can’t tell

Assuming that, in testing H0:
μ
=20 vs. H1
μ
≠20, you decide on the critical region X bar ≤ 15 and
X bar ≥ 25. Assume X is normally distributed, σ
2
= 25, and the following four random values
are observed: 9, 20, 15, 11.
a) Would you accept or reject H
0
?
b) What level of
α
is assumed here?
c) What probability value would you report?
d) What would be the appropriate critical region for...
