Question

Consider a drug testing company that provides a test for marijuana usage. Among 291tested subjects, results from 27subjects were wrong (either a false positive or a false negative). Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that less than 10 percent of the test results are wrong.

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that ,

n = 291

x = 27

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

Upper H0 : p = 0.10

Upper Ha : p < 0.10

This is the left tailed test .

= x / n = 27 / 291 = 0.0928

P0 = 10% = 0.10

1 - P0 = 1 - 0.10 = 0.90

Test statistic = z

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

= 0.0928 - 0.10 / [0.10 (1 - 0.10) / 291 ]

= -0.41

**The test statistic = -0.41**

P-value = 0.3408

**The P - value = 0.341**

= 0.05

0.341 > 0.05

P-value >

Fail to reject the null hypothesis .

Correct option **:- D. Fail to reject Upper Ho**

**There is not sufficient evidence to warrant support of
the claim that less than10 percent of the test results are
wrong.**

In one study of smokers who tried to quit smoking with nicotine
patch therapy, 38 were smoking one year after treatment and 34
were not smoking one year after the treatment. Use a 0.10
significance level to test the claim that among smokers who try to
quit with nicotine patch therapy, the majority are smoking one
year after the treatment. Do these results suggest that the
nicotine patch therapy is not effective?

Assume that adults were randomly selected for a poll. They were
asked if they "favor or oppose using federal tax dollars to fund
medical research using stem cells obtained from human embryos." Of
those polled, 490 were in favor, 402 were opposed, and 120 were
unsure. A politician claims that people don't really understand
the stem cell issue and their responses to such questions are
random responses equivalent to a coin toss. Exclude the 120
subjects who said that they...
