b. Yes, with a larger sample size, the standard error would be smaller and hence, the
calculated value of t would be larger. This would yield a smaller p-value and hence
the company’s claim could be rejected at a lower significance level than part a.

9.53 a. The null hypothesis is the statement that is assumed to be true unless there is sufficient
evidence to suggest that the null hypothesis can be rejected. The alternative
hypothesis is the statement that will be accepted if there is sufficient evidence to
reject the null hypothesis
b. A simple hypothesis assumes a specific value for the population parameter that is
being tested. A composite hypothesis assumes a range of values for the population
parameter.
c. One sided alternatives can be either a one-tailed upper (> greater than) or a one-tailed
lower (< less than) statement about the population parameter. Two sided alternatives
are made up of both greater than or less than statements and are written as ( not
equal to).
d. A Type I error is falsely rejecting the null hypothesis. To make a Type I error, the
truth must be that the null hypothesis is really true and yet you conclude to reject the
null and accept the alternative. A Type II error is falsely not rejecting the null
hypothesis when in fact the null hypothesis is false. To make a Type II error, the null
hypothesis must be false (the alternative is true) and yet you conclude to not reject the
null hypothesis.

e. Significance level is the chosen level of significance that establishes the probability
of a making a Type I error. This is represented by alpha. The power of the test, 1 –
β, is the ability of the hypothesis test to identify correctly a false null hypothesis and
reject it.

9.54 The p-value indicates the likelihood of getting the sample result at least as far away from
the hypothesized value as the one that was found, assuming that the distribution is really
centered on the null hypothesis. The smaller the p-value, the stronger the evidence against
the null hypothesis.
