Question

The director of research and development is testing a new medicine. She wants to know if there is evidence at the 0.02 level that the medicine relieves pain in less than 314 seconds. For a sample of 53 patients, the mean time in which the medicine relieved pain was 310 seconds. Assume the standard deviation is known to be 19. Perform the hypotheses test to check the claim.

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

This is a left (One) tailed test,

The null and alternative hypothesis is,

**Ho:
314**

**Ha:
314**

The test statistics,

Z =( - )/ (/n)

= ( 310 - 314 ) / ( 19 / 53 )

= **-1.53**

P-value = P( Z < z )

= P(Z < -1.53)

= **0.0630**

**The p-value is p = 0.0630, and since p = 0.0630 >
0.02, it is concluded that fail to reject the null
hypothesis.**

**There is no evidence at the 0.02 level that the medicine
relieves pain in less than 314 seconds.**

medicine. She wants to know if there is evidence at the 0.02 level
that the medicine relieves pain in more than 312 seconds. For a
sample of 65 patients, the mean time in which the medicine relieved
pain was 314 seconds. Assume the population standard deviation is
23. Make the decision to reject or fail to reject the null
hypothesis.
