Answer #1

To test H0: µ = 42.0 vs.
HA: µ ≠ 42.0, a sample of
n = 40
will be taken from a large population with σ=
9.90.
H0 will be rejected if the sample
mean is less than 40.3 or greater than
43.7.
Find and state the level of significance, α, to
three (3) places of decimal.

D. p-value < α where α is the level of significance.

(0.75, 0.85)
(0.80, 0.90)
(0.85, 0.95)
Question 5
Suppose that the following hypothesis were tested H0:
p = .75 vs HA: p >.75. The resulting p-value was
.005. Which of the following is most likely the 95% confidence
interval using the same...

7. Suppose you are testing H0 : µ = 10 vs H1 : µ 6= 10. The
sample is small (n = 5) and the data come from a normal population.
The variance, σ 2 , is unknown. (a) Find the critical value(s)
corresponding to α = 0.10. (b) You find that t = −1.78. Based on
your critical value, what decision do you make regarding the null
hypothesis (i.e. do you Reject H0 or Do Not Reject H0)?

Suppose that you are testing the hypotheses H0?: p=0.17 vs. HA?:
p?0.17. A sample of size 200 results in a sample proportion of
0.22.
?a) Construct a 99?% confidence interval for p.
?b) Based on the confidence? interval, can you reject H0 at
?=0.01?? Explain. ?
c) What is the difference between the standard error and
standard deviation of the sample? proportion?
?d) Which is used in computing the confidence? interval?

1.For testing H0 : p = 0.5 vs. Ha : p < 0.5 at level α, let a
sample of size n = 100 is taken. What would be an appropriate
rejection region?
A. t0 < tα B. z0 < zα C. z0 > zα D. |z0| > zα/2
2. A test statistic
A. is a function of a random sample used to test a hypothesis.
B. is a function of a parameter used to test a hypothesis. C. is...

H0 : µ = 1m
Ha : µ < 1m
test statistic = 2.5
1. what is the sampling distribution for this test
statistic?
2. Level of significance is 0.05, what is the rejection
region?
3. Is this statistically significant? Why/why not?
(i) what does this say about the hypotheses?
4. Would the answer to 3. be different if the level of
significance was 0.01? why?

We want to test H0 : µ ≤ 120 versus Ha : µ > 120 . We know
that n = 324, x = 121.100 and, σ = 9. We want to test H0 at the .05
level of significance. For this problem, round your answers to 3
digits after the decimal point.
1. What is the value of the test statistic?
2. What is the critical value for this test?
3. Using the critical value, do we reject or...
