Question

A store serves two ice cream flavors: vanilla and chocolate. Out of a sample of 50 customers, 27 purchased the vanilla flavor. Assume the underlying customer flavor selection distribution is normal.

Is the proportion of customers purchasing vanilla greater than 50%? (this part is done)

Ho is that p is not greater than 1/2

Ha is that p is greater than 1/2

z = 0.60

p value = 0.30

alpha = significance level = 10%

What is the power of the test if the true population proportion is equal to the sample proportion? (I need help on this part of the question)

Answer #1

Hypotheses are:

Test is right tailed so critical value of z is 1.28.

The critical value of sample proportion for which we will reject the null hypothesis is

-----------------\

Now it is given that p = 27 / 50= 0.54

The z-score for and p = 0.54 is

The power of the test is

power = P(z > 0.71) = 1 - P(z <= 0.71) = 1 - 0.7611 = 0.2389

What's your favorite ice cream flavor? For people who buy ice
cream, the all-time favorite is still vanilla. About 28% of ice
cream sales are vanilla. Chocolate accounts for only 13% of ice
cream sales. Suppose that 182 customers go to a grocery store in
Cheyenne, Wyoming, today to buy ice cream. (Round your answers to
four decimal places.)
(a) What is the probability that 50 or more will buy
vanilla?
(b) What is the probability that 12 or more...
