Question

In a test of the hypothesis

Upper H 0 : mu equals 53H0: μ=53

versus

Upper H Subscript a Baseline : mu greater than 53Ha: μ>53,

a sample of

n equals 100n=100

observations possessed mean

x overbarxequals=52.452.4

and standard deviation

sequals=3.53.5.

Find and interpret the p-value for this test.

Answer #1

(a)

H0: = 53

Ha: > 53

n = Sample size = 100

= Sample mean = 52.4

s = 3.5

SE = s/

= 3.5/ = 0.35

Test statistic is:

Z = (52.4 - 53)/0.35 = - 1.7143

Table of Area Under StandardNormal Curve gives area = 0.4564

One tail - Right Side Test

So,

P-value = 0.5 + 0.4564 = 0.9564

So,Answer is:

**0.9564**

(b) Interpretation of p-value = 0.9564:

P-value is the probability of obtaining an effect at least as extreme as the one in the data, assuming the truth of the null hypothesis.

P-value = 0.9564 determines the statistical significance in the hypothesistest.Here, sincethe p-value is high, we can conclude that the data are likely with True Null Hypothesis: H0: = 53.

In a test of the hypothesis Upper H 0 : mu equals 10 versus
Upper H Subscript a Baseline : mu not equals 10 a sample of n=50
observations possessed mean x over=10.6 and standard deviation
s=2.7. Find and interpret the p-value for this test.

Consider testing Upper H 0 : mu equals 20H0: μ=20 against Upper
H Subscript a Baseline : mu less than 20Ha: μ<20 where muμ is

hospitalemployees, based on the summary statistics nequals=46, x
overbarxequals=19.3 and sequals=11.3 Complete parts a and b.

Given Upper H 0 H0: mu μ equals =25, Upper H Subscript a Ha:
mu μ not equals ≠25, and P equals = 0.023 0.023. Do you reject or
fail to reject Upper H 0 H0 at the 0.01 level of significance?

Consider testing Upper H 0 : mu equals 20H0: μ=20 against Upper
H Subscript a Baseline : mu less than 20Ha: μ<20 where μ
is the mean number of latex gloves used per week by all
hospital employees, based on the summary statistics n=43,
x=19.3, and s=11.1
Complete parts a and b.
a. Compute the p-value of the test.
b. Compare the p-value with α=0.05 and make the appropriate
conclusion. Choose the correct answer below.

To test Upper H 0 : sigma equals 1.6 versus Upper H 1 : sigma
greater than 1.6, a random sample of size n equals 19 is obtained
from a population that is known to be normally distributed.
(a) If the sample standard deviation is determined to be s
equals 2.1, compute the test statistic.
(b) If the researcher decides to test this hypothesis at the
alpha equals 0.01 level of significance, use technology to
determine the P-value.
(c)...

To test Upper H 0 : p equals 0.45 versus Upper H 1 : p greater
than 0.45, a simple random sample of n equals 200 individuals is
obtained and x equals 69 successes are observed.
(a) What does it mean to make a Type II error for thistest?
(b) If the researcher decides to test this hypothesis at the
alpha equals 0.01 level of significance, compute the probability
of making a Type II error, beta , if...

To test Upper H 0: mu equals20 versus Upper H 1: mu less
than20, a simple random sample of size n=17 is obtained from a
population that is known to be normally distributed.
(a) If
x overbar x equals=18.1
and s equals=4.1,
compute the test statistic.
t equals=−1.91
(Round to two decimal places as needed.)
c) Approximate the P-value. Choose the correct range for the
P-value below.
A. 0.10 less than Upper P dash value less than 0.15
B. 0.15...

In a one-tail hypothesis test where you reject Upper H 0 only
in the lower tail, what is the p dash value if upper Z subscript
STAT baseline equals negative 1.05?

For a population being studied, the null hypothesis for the
population mean is H subscript 0 colon mu equals 40 and an
alternative hypothesis is H subscript 1 colon mu greater than 40.
If a sample of size n equals 26 is randomly selected from the
population and the sample mean is calculated to be x with bar on
top equals 42.3 with standard deviation s equals 5.6, give the
P-value for the right-tailed hypothesis test of mean.

A study examined whether the content of TV shows influenced the
ability of viewers to recall brand names in commercials. The
researchers randomly assigned volunteers to watch one of three
programs, each containing the same nine commercials. The shows were
either violent, sexual, or neutral. Afterwards, the subjects
were asked to recall the brands of the advertised products. Results
are summarized to the right. Complete parts a and b below.
violent sexual neutral
