Question

A new method of HIV testing has been proposed based on a new quick detection procedure where saliva is examined. Suppose that the new method tests 867 persons and falsely categorizes 25 of the 176 HIV positive results. Assuming the current best standard of practice for saliva based quick detection HIV tests has a false positive rate of only 10%, determine if the efficacy of the two tests are significantly different. Write out your null and alternative hypotheses and interpret your results and use an alpha level of 0.05. Is a normal approximation appropriate? Why or why not?

Answer choices:

Yes, npq>5 Ho: p=.10, Ha: p≠0.10 Z statistic=1.8573, pvalue of 0.0633 Fail to reject the null hypothesis that the failure rate in the new detection mechanism is any better than the current system.

No, npq<5 Ho: p=.10, Ha: p≠0.10 Z statistic=1.7771, pvalue of 0.0006 Fail to reject the null hypothesis that the failure rate in the new detection mechanism is any better than the current system.

Yes, npq>5 Ho: p=0.01, Ha: p≠0.010 Z statistic=2.1003, pvalue of 0.05 Reject the null hypothesis that the failure rate in the new detection mechanism is any better than the current system.

Suppose a mechanical engineering company is interested in
patenting a new device that is intended to serve as the next
generation of breast cancer screening beyond mammography. A key
measurement statistic for the new device is its false positive
rate. Suppose the current false positive rate for mammography is
12% with a σ of 3%, and the company tests the device on a SRS of
245 patients that results in an average false positive rate of
6.5%.

A user survey is completed by 35 individuals testing a new
interface. They each score the interface on a 1 to 100 scale. The
average score is 71 with a standard deviation of 4. The designer
wants to test the hypothesis that the rating is above 70 with 95%
confidence. ________________
Which of these is the appropriate null hypothesis? (Ho: μ <
70 , Ho: μ ≥ 70 , Ho: μ < 72, or Ho: μ ≥ 72)

A new fuel injection system has been engineered for pickup
trucks. The new system and the old system both produce about the
same average miles per gallon. However, engineers question which
system (old or new) will give better consistency in fuel
consumption (miles per gallon) under a variety of driving
conditions. A random sample of 41 trucks were fitted with the new
fuel injection system and driven under different conditions. For
these trucks, the sample variance of gasoline consumption was...
