Question

2) In a recent election poll, 57 of 273 registered voters claimed that they would vote for a candidate, Dr. Smith. The doctor will be allowed to participate in a televised debate if the network sponsoring the debate feels fairly certain that Dr. Smith has more than 20% of the vote among the population of registered voters at this time. They perform a hypothesis test using a significance level of 5% and obtain the following results: Results: Z = 0.363 p-value = .3583 Question: Do these data provide good evidence that Dr. Smith has more than 20% of the vote among the population of registered voters at this time? You do not need to address conditions here; they have been met. To obtain full credit, your writing below should: • Present the null and alternative hypotheses they evaluated (in words or symbols) • Clearly demonstrate a decision regarding the null hypothesis based on this p-value • Answer the original question in a clear, concise, complete sentence (or sentences).

Answer #1

Let p denotes the true proportion of the vote among the population of registered voters at this time

To test null hypothesis against alternative hypothesis

The value of the test statistic z= 0.363

and P-value = 0.3583

Since p-value > 0.05, so at 0.05 level of significance we
reject H_{0} and we can conclude that there is enough
evidence to support the claim that more than 20% of the vote among
the population of registered voters at this time.

In a recent poll, 134 registered voters who planned to
vote in the next election were asked if they would vote for a
particular candidate and 80 of these people responded that they
would. We wish to predict the proportion of people who will vote
for this candidate in the election.
a) Find a point estimator of the proportion who would vote for
this candidate.
b) Construct a 90% confidence interval for the true proportion
who would vote for this...

1. a. In the 2016 Presidential Election, a campaign manager
claimed that 60% of registered voters in the metropolitan area
preferred his candidate. A pollster randomly sampled 1000
registered voters to test the campaign manager’s claim. The
pollster finds that 58 percent of the sample of registered voters
he polled indicated that they preferred the campaign manager’s
candidate. Answer the questions below using the given
information.
null hypothesis:
the alternative hypothesis:
explain what test will be used and why:
