when the individual is actually telling the truth. Consider the null hypothesis, "the individual is telling the
truth," to answer the following questions.

## a. What is the probability of Type I error?

The probability is, we reject Ho and Ho is true, so the probability of type I error is 0.05

## b. What is the probability of Type II error?

From the conclusion of the test, we do not reject Ho and from the test there is Ho false, so the

A sample of 25 observations yields a sample mean of 13.4. Assume that the sample is drawn from a

## P value -> P(x̄ ≥ 13.4 | H = 12.6)

=P[13.4 – 12.6]
3.2/√25

## If a 0.1, so the p value of α = 0.1 is 0.108

Do not reject Ho since p values = 0.1056 > α = 0.1

c. Calculate the p -value if the above sample mean was based on a sample of 100 observations.

## So the p value of P = P(x̄ ≥ 13.4 | H = 12.6)

3.2/√100

A sample of 80 observations results in a sample mean of 144. The population standard deviation is
known to be 28.

a. What is the critical value for the test with α = 0.01 and with α = 0.05?

There is two ways to find it -> you can search log to find value of Z or x̄, because both of them is
critical value
For a=0.01,
- the z method

## This is one tailed with a=0.01 so the test statistic -> Z = x̄ - H

Ɵ/√n
= 144 – 150
28/√80
= -1.9
- the x̄ method
x̄ = H – Za x Ɵ/√n
= 150 – 1.645 x 28/√80
= 144.852

b. Does the above sample evidence enable us to reject the null hypothesis at α = 0.01 ?

the answer is can not because since Z = -1.9 > -2.323, we cannot reject Ho or in simple word the
value of critical value z > zx

c. Does the above sample evidence enable us to reject the null hypothesis at α = 0.05?

yes, because since 144(x̄) < 144.852 (x̄a), this condition will reject Ho

p= [z<6.7 – 7]

## b.) x̄a = H – za x Ɵ/√n

is, it is either underfilling or overfilling the cereal boxes.

Ho = H = 1.2pounds

## With a = 0.05 so a/2 = 2.5%

So reject Ho since p value = 0.0028 < α = 0.25 or in the other words, machine is working
improperly

## d. Repeat the exercise using the critical value approach.

x̄ = H ± Za x Ɵ/√n

Massachusetts enacted a law that forbids cell phone use by drivers under the age o f 18. A policy analyst
w ould like to determine whether the law has decreased the proportion o f drivers under the age o f 18
who use a cell phone.

a. State the null and the alternative hypotheses to test the policy analyst's objective.

a. H0 = 𝜇 ≤ 0,82

H1 = 𝜇 > 0,82

## -1,822 < 0,05. P-value < 0,05. Reject H0

c. Suppose a sample of 200 drivers under the age of 18 results in 150 who still use a cell phone while
driving. What is the value of the test statistic? What is the p-value?
0,75 − 0,82
z= = -1,822
0,82(1−0,82)

100

p value = 0,1401

d. Repeat this exercise using the critical value approach with α = 0.05.

many banks are unwittingly training their online customers to take risks with their passwords and other
sensitive account information, leaving them more vulnerable to fraud (Yahoo.com, July 23, 2008). Even
web surfers could find themselves the victims of identity theft because they have been conditioned to
ignore potential signs about whether the banking site they are visiting is real or abogus site served up by
hackers. Researchers at the University of Michigan found design flaws in 78% of the 214 U.S. financial
institution websites they studied. Is the above sample evidence sufficient to conclude that more than
three out of four financial institutions that offer online banking facilities are prone to fraud? Use a 5%
significance level for the test.

a. H0 = 𝜇 ≤ 0,78

H1 = 𝜇 > 0,78

b.

A phone manufacturer wants to compete in the touch screen phone market. He understands that the lead
product has a battery life o f just 5 hours. The manufacturer claims that while the new touch phone is
more expensive, its battery life is more than twice as long as that o f the leading product. In order to test
the claim, a researcher samples 45 units of the new phone and finds that the sample battery life averages
10.5 hours with a sample standard deviation of 1.8 hours.

## a. Set up the relevant null and the alternative hypotheses.

H0 = 𝜇 ≥ 10

H1 = 𝜇 < 10
b. Compute the value of the appropriate test statistic.
df = 45-1 = 44
10,5 − 10
t= 1,8
= 1,86
√45

c. Use the critical value approach to test the phone manufacturer's claim at α = 0.05.

## t crit = t 44, 0.05 = 1.68

so since t stat = 1,863
t crit = 1,68
t stat > t crit , we reject H0
d.Repeat the analysis with the p-value approach.
t 44 ; x = 1,863
x = p value < signifikan level
we reject H0

A city council is deciding whether or not to spend additional money to reduce the amount of traffic. The
council decides that it will increase the transportation budget if the amount of waiting time for drivers
exceeds 20 minutes. A sample of 32 main roads results in a mean waiting time of 22.08 minutes with a
standard deviation of 5.42 minutes. Conduct a hypothesis test at a 1% level of significance to determine
whether or not the city should increase its transportation budget.

Step 1

H0 = 𝜇 ≥ 20

H1 = 𝜇 < 20

N = 32

X bar = 22,08

S = 5,42

Alfa = 0,01

df = n-1 = 32-1 = 31

Step 3
22,8 − 20
t stat = t= 5,42
= 2,17
√32
t crit = t 31 ; 0,01 = 2,453

Conclusion
so, t stat < t crit , we do not reject H0, city should not increase the transportation budget

A television network is deciding whether or not to give its newest television show a spot during prime
viewing time atnight. For this to happen, it will have to move one of its most viewed shows to another
slot. The network conducts a survey asking its viewers which show they would rather watch. The network
will keep its current lineup of shows unless the majority of the customers want to watch the new show.
The network receives 827 responses, of which 428 indicate that they would like to see the new show in
the lineup.
