Question

Suppose we observe Y1,...Yn from a normal distribution with unknown parameters such that ¯ Y = 24, s2 = 36, and n = 15.

(a) Find the rejection region of a level α = 0.05 test of H0 : µ = 20 vs. H1 : µ 6= 20. Would this test reject with the given data?

(b) Find the rejection region of a level α = 0.05 test of H0 : µ ≤ 20 vs. H1 : µ > 20. Would this test reject with the given data?

(c) Will the p-value for the given data be smaller in part (a) or (b)? Why?

Answer #1

x̅ = 24, s = 6, n = 15

a) Null and Alternative hypothesis:

Ho : µ = 20 ; H1 : µ ≠ 20

Test statistic:

t = (x̅ - µ)/(s/√n) = (24 - 20)/(6/√15) = 2.5820

df = n-1 = 14

Critical value :

Two tailed critical value, t-crit = T.INV.2T(0.05, 14) = 2.145

Rejection region:

**Reject Ho if t < -2.145 or if t >
2.145**

Decision:

As t = 2.5820 > 2.145, Reject the null hypothesis.

----

b)

Null and Alternative hypothesis:

Ho : µ ≤ 20 ; H1 : µ > 20

Critical value :

Right tailed critical value, t-crit = ABS(T.INV(0.05, 14)) = 1.761

Rejection region:

**Reject Ho if t > 1.761**

Decision:

As t = 2.5820 > 1.761, Reject the null hypothesis

----

c) The p-value will be smaller in part b).

. 2. Let Y1,Y2,...,Yn be i.i.d. draws from a distribution of
mean µ.
A test of H0 : µ ≥ 5 versus H1 : µ < 5
using the usual t-statistic yields a p-value of 0.03.
a. Can we reject the null at 5% significance level (or α =
0.05)? Explain?
b. How about at 1% significance level (or α = 0.01)? Explain?
[Draw a figure to explain, if helpful.]

Let y1,y2,...,yn denote a random sample from a Weibull
distribution with parameters m=3 and unknown alpha:
f(y)=(3/alpha)*y^2*e^(-y^3/alpha) y>0
0 otherwise

A sample is drawn from a population and we estimate that the
two-sided 99% conﬁdence interval on the mean of the population is
1.09007 ≤ µ ≤ 1.40993. One of the following statement is correct,
determine which.
A. We would reject the null hypothesis H0 : µ = 1.1 against the
alternative hypothesis H1 : µ 6= 1.1 at the level of signiﬁcance α
= 1%.
B. We would fail to reject the null hypothesis H0 : µ = 1.5...

A sample from a Normal distribution with an unknown mean µ and
known variance
σ = 45 was taken with n = 9 samples giving sample mean of ¯ y =
3.6.
(a) Construct a Hypothesis test with significance level α = 0.05 to
test whether the
mean is equal to 0 or it is greater than 0. What can you conclude
based on the
outcome of the sample?
(b) Calculate the power of this test if the true value...

Suppose X1, · · · , Xn from a normal distribution N(µ, σ2 )
where µ is unknown but σ is known. Consider the following
hypothesis testing problem:
H0 : µ = µ0 vs. Ha : µ > µ0
Prove that the decision rule is that we reject H0 if
X¯ − µ0 σ/√ n > Z(1 − α),
where α is the significant level, and show that this is
equivalent to rejecting H0 if µ0 is less than the...

Let X1, X2, . . . , Xn be a random sample from the normal
distribution N(µ, 36). (a) Show that a uniformly most powerful
critical region for testing H0 : µ = 50 against H1 : µ < 50 is
given by C2 = {x : x ≤ c}. Find the values of c for α = 0.10.

A sample data is drawn from a normal population with unknown
mean µ and known standard deviation σ = 5. We run the test µ = 125
vs µ < 125 on a sample of size n = 100 with x = 120. Will you be
able to reject H0 at the signiﬁcance level of 5%?
A. Yes
B. No
C. Undecidable, not enough information
D. None of the above

A random sample of 36 values is drawn from a mound-shaped and
symmetric distribution. The sample mean is 8 and the sample
standard deviation is 2. Use a level of significance of 0.05 to
conduct a two-tailed test of the claim that the population mean is
7.5.
(a) Is it appropriate to use a Student's t
distribution? Explain.
Yes, because the x distribution is mound-shaped and
symmetric and σ is unknown.
No, the x distribution is skewed
left.
No, the...

The observations in the sample are random and independent. The
underlying population distribution is approximately normal. We
consider H0: =15 against Ha: 15. with
=0.05.
Sample statistics: = 16, sx= 0.75, n= 10.
1. For the given data, find the test
statistic
t-test=4.22
t-test=0.42
t-test=0.75
z-test=8.44
z-test=7.5
2.
Decide whether the test statistic is in the rejection region and
whether you should reject or fail to reject the null
hypothesis.
the test statistic is in the rejection region, reject the...
