Question

20) A test of significance is conducted for the hypotheses H 0 : μ = 200 vs. H a : μ > 200. Suppose the z −score for this test was calculated as z =0.76. What is the P-value for this test of significance? Give your answer to four decimal places.

22) A one sample t −test of significance is conducted for the hypotheses H 0 : μ = 1000 vs. H a : μ < 1000 using a sample of size 100. The value of the t −score is computed to be t = − 2.369. Which of the following is the correct estimate for the P-value using the T-Distribution chart?

A)

B)

C)

D)

Answer #1

Solution :

20 ) Given that

This is the right tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H0 : = 200

Ha : >200

Test statistic = z = 0.76

P(z > 0.76 ) = 1 - P(z < 0.76 ) = 1 -0.7764

P-value =0.2236

22 ) Given that ,

n =100

df = n- 1 = 100 -1 = 99

This is the left tailed test .

t =− 2.369

p value = p(t(99) < − 2.369)

= 0.0099

p value =0.0099

9. In a test of hypotheses of the form ?0 : μ = 78.3 versus H1 :
μ ≠78.3 using ? = .01, when the sample size is 28 and the
population is normal but with unknown standard deviation the
rejection region will be the interval or union of intervals: (a)
[2.771, ∞) (b) [2.473, ∞) (c) [2.576, ∞) (d) (−∞,−2.771] ∪ [2.771,
∞) (e) (−∞,−2.473] ∪ [2.473, ∞)

5. In a test of hypotheses ?0: μ = 98.6 versus ?1 : μ > 98.6,
the rejection region is the interval [2.306,∞), the value of the
sample mean computed from a sample of size 9 is ?̅= 99.7, and the
value of the test statistic is t = 2.118. The correct decision and
justification are: (a) Do not reject ?0 because the sample is
small. (b) Do not reject ?0 because 2.118 < 2.306. (c) Reject ?0
because 99.7...

A researcher wishes to test the following hypotheses: H 0 : μ ≤
10 H A : μ > 10 Based on 54 independent observations, he
calculates a sample mean of 11 and a sample standard deviation of
4. Calculate the T-score he should use for his test statistic.
Report your answer to at least three decimal places, e.g.,
0.123.

Use the t-distribution and the sample results to
complete the test of the hypotheses. Use a 5% significance level.
Assume the results come from a random sample, and if the sample
size is small, assume the underlying distribution is relatively
normal.

200 results in a sample proportion of 0.28.
a) The 90% confidence interval for p is ( , ). (Round to
three decimal places as needed.)

a. If for the test of H0: μ = μ h vs. Ha: μ
≠ μ h the null hypothesis cannot be rejected at α = .05, then it

vs. Ha: μ > μ h.
A. might B. must always C. will never
