Question

A hospital director is told that 60% of the treated patients are insured. The director wants to test the claim that the percentage of insured patients is below the expected percentage. A sample of 160 patients found that 80 were insured. Find the value of the test statistic. Round your answer to two decimal places.

Answer #1

Solution :

This is the two tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is

H0 : p =0.60

Ha : p 0.60

n = 160

x =80

= x / n = 80 / 160 =0.50

P0 = 0.60

1 - P0 = 1 -0.60 =0.40

Test statistic = z

= - P0 / [P0 * (1 - P0 ) / n]

=0.50-0.60 / [(0.60*0.40) / 160]

= -2.58

Test statistic = z =-2.58

A hospital director is told that 54% of the treated patients are
insured. The director wants to test the claim that the percentage
of insured patients is below the expected percentage. A sample of
380 patients found that 190 were insured. Find the value of the
test statistic. Round your answer to two decimal places.

A hospital director is told that 56% of the emergency room
visitors are insured. The director wants to test the claim that the
percentage of insured patients is below the expected percentage. A
sample of 160 patients found that 80 were insured. Find the value
of the test statistic. Round your answer to two decimal places.

A hospital director is told that 68% of the treated patients are
insured. The director wants to test the claim that the percentage
of insured patients is above the expected percentage. A sample of
300 patients found that 225 were insured. At the 0.01 level, is
there enough evidence to support the director's claim?
step 1 State the null and alternative hypotheses.
Step 2 Find the value of the test statistic. Round your answer to
two decimal places.
Step 3...

A hospital director is told that 55% of the treated patients are
insured. The director wants to test the claim that the percentage
of insured patients is under the expected percentage. A sample of
190 patients found that 95 were insured. At the 0.05 level, is
there enough evidence to support the director's claim?

A hospital director is told that 55% of the treated patients are
insured. The director wants to test the claim that the percentage
of insured patients is under the expected percentage. A sample of
180 patients found that 90 were insured. Make the decision to
reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis at the 0.05 level.

A hospital director is told that 54% of the treated patients are
insured. The director wants to test the claim that the percentage
of insured patients is less than the expected percentage. A sample
of 150 patients found that 70 were insured. Is there sufficient
evidence at the 0.05 level to support the director's claim? State
the alternative and null hypotheses.

A hospital director is told that 78% of the emergency room
visitors are insured. The director wants to test the claim that the
percentage of insured patients is below the expected percentage. A
sample of 200 patients found that 150 were insured. Find the value
of the test statistic. Round your answer to two decimal places.

A hospital director is told that 54%54% of the emergency room
visitors are insured. The director wants to test the claim that the
percentage of insured patients is not the expected percentage. A
sample of 260260 patients found that 130130 were insured. At the
0.050.05 level, is there enough evidence to support the director's
claim?
Step 4 of 7:
Determine the P-value of the test statistic. Round your answer
to four decimal places.

A hospital director is told that 30% of the treated patients are
uninsured. The director wants to test the claim that the percentage
of uninsured patients is below the expected percentage. A sample of
360 patients found that 90 were uninsured. Make the decision to
reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis at the 0.10 level.
