Suppose we want to test the null hypothesis H0 : p = 0.28 against the alternative hypothesis H1 : p ≠ 0.28. Suppose also that we observed 100 successes in a random sample of 400 subjects and the level of significance is 0.05. What is the p-value for this test?

a. 0.9563

b. 0.0901

c. 0.05

d. 0.1802

Answer #1

Solution :

This is the two tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is

H0 : p =0.28

Ha : p 0.28

n = 400

x = 100

= x / n = 100 / 400 = 0.25

P0 = 0.28

1 - P0 = 1 - 0.28 = 0.72

Test statistic = z

= - P0 / [P0 * (1 - P0 ) / n]

= 0.28 / [ 0.28 * / ]

= −1.336

Test statistic = z = −1.34

P(z < -1.34 ) = 0.0901 * 2 =

P-value = 0.1802

= 0.05

P-value ≥

0.1802 ≥ 0.05

Do not reject the null hypothesis .

There is insufficient evidence to suggest that
