Question

4. In a sample of 100 registered voters, 54 said that they might
vote for Candidate A. Test

the research hypothesis that Candidate A’s approval rating is
greater than 50% against the

null hypothesis that it is 50%. Give a p-value for the preceding
problem ??

Answer #1

H0: p <= 0.50

Ha: p > 0.50 (Right tailed)

Sample proportion = 54 / 100 = 0.54

Test statistics

z = - p / sqrt( p ( 1 - p) / n)

= 0.54 - 0.50 / sqrt( 0.50 * 0.50 / 100)

= 0.8

This is test statistics value.

p-value = P (Z > z)

= P (Z > 0.8)

= 1 - P( Z < 0.8)

= 1 - 0.7881

= 0.2119

Since p-value > 0.05 significance level, we do not have sufficient evidence to reject H0.

We conclude at 0.05 significant level that we fail to support the claim.

suppose 1,600 of 2,000 registered voters sampled said they
planned to vote for the republican candidate for president. using
0.95 degree of confidence, what is the interval estimated for the
population proportion(to the nearest tenth of a percent)? A.) 78.2%
to 81.8% B.)69.2% to 86.4% C.) 76.5% to 83.5% D.) 77.7 to 82.3%
what is the critical value for a one-tailed hypothesis test in
which a null hypothesis is tested at the 5% level of significance
based on a sample...

A random sample of ?=1000 registered voters and found that 520
would vote for the Republican candidate in a state senate race. Let
? represent the proportion of registered voters who would vote for
the Republican candidate.
Consider testing
?0:?=.50
??:?>.50
(a) The test statistic is ?z =
(b) Regardless of what you acutally computed, suppose your
answer to part (a) was z = 1.28. Using this z, p-value =

2) In a recent election poll, 57 of 273 registered voters
claimed that they would vote for a candidate, Dr. Smith. The doctor
will be allowed to participate in a televised debate if the network
sponsoring the debate feels fairly certain that Dr. Smith has more
than 20% of the vote among the population of registered voters at
this time. They perform a hypothesis test using a significance
level of 5% and obtain the following results: Results: Z = 0.363...

Of 300 female registered voters surveyed, 120 indicated they
were planning to vote for the incumbent president; while of 400
male registered voters, 140 indicated they were planning to vote
for the incumbent president.
a.
Compute the test statistic.
b.
At α = .01, test to see if there is a significant
difference between the population proportions of females and males
who plan to vote for the incumbent president. (Use the
p-value approach.)

Only 12% of registered voters voted in the last election. Will
