- Exam 2 on Wed, Oct 23

Presentation:

- Hypothesis testing: 1-tail vs 2-tail
- 2-Tail Tests
- Example 6.15 (p. 383-384):
- Ho: μ = 168, Ha: μ ≠ 168, x-bar = 173.7, n=71, σ = 27, α = 0.05

- Use Your Knowledge 6.43 (p. 385-386):
- Ho: μ = 25, Ha: μ ≠ 25, x-bar = 27, n=25, σ = 5, α = 0.05

- Example 6.15 (p. 383-384):
- Compare >, < and ≠
- Z = -1.73
- What is the p-value for
- Ha: μ > μo [use 1 – P(Z)]
- Ha: μ < μo [use P(Z)]
- Ha: μ ≠ μo [multiply by 2]

Activity:

Determine whether it’s a 1-sided or 2-sided hypothesis test and solve. Report p-values and determine if you can reject or must fail to reject the null hypothesis.

- A test of the null hypothesis Ho: μ = μo yields test statistic z = 1.34.
- What is the P-value if the alternative is Ha: μ > μo
- What is the P-value if the alternative is Ha: μ < μo
- What is the P-value if the alternative is Ha: μ ≠ μo

- The college bookstore tells students the average textbook price is $52 with a standard deviation of $4.50. A group of students thinks the average price is higher. In order to test the bookstore’s claim, the students select a random sample of size 100 and find a sample mean price of $52.80. Perform a hypothesis test to determine if the price difference is significantly higher for α = 0.05.
- A certain chemical pollutant in the Arkansas River has been constant for several years with mean μ = 34 ppm (parts per million) and standard deviation σ = 8 ppm. A group of factory representatives whose companies discharge liquids into the river is now claiming they have lowered the average with improved filtration devices. A group of environmentalists will test to see if this is true. Assume their sample of size 50 gives a mean of 32.5 ppm. Perform a hypothesis test to determine if the pollution levels are significantly lower for α = 0.05.
- A manufacturing process produces ball bearings with diameters that have a normal distribution with mean, μ = 0.50 centimeters and known standard deviation, σ = .04 centimeters. Ball bearings with diameters that are too small or too large are problematic.
- Assume a random sample n=25 with a sample mean diameter = 0.51 cm. Perform a hypothesis test at α = 0.05.
- Assume a random sample n=25 with a sample mean diameter = 0.48 cm. Perform a hypothesis test at α = 0.05.

**Exam 2 on Wed, Oct 23**

Presentation:

**Significance Testing**- aka Hypothesis Testing
- Purpose: to evaluate data for evidence of significant agreement or disagreement

**Significance testing is like paternity testing.**- When you check father-child DNA for a match you can prove one person is or is not the father.
- The same test does not prove another person is the father.
- You’re evaluating only one possibility at a time.

- Significance Testing video

**Step 1.**Setup the null hypothesis (Ho) and alternate hypothesis (Ha)**Step 2.**Calculate the appropriate test statistic**Step 3.**Find the P-value (probability of obtaining result by chance)**Step 4.**Interpret results, compare P-value to α = 0.05 ; if P-value < 0.05, “Reject Ho” else “Fail to Reject Ho”

**Example A**:**Do Math SAT scores improve significantly with coaching?**- National Math SAT scores are normally distributed with mean score = 505 and std. dev = 62
- Sampled 1,000 students who received coaching
- Sample mean score was 509
- Are these results significantly better than the national average?
**Step 1**: Setup the hypothesis test**μ = 505, σ = 62**

x̅ = 509, n = 1,000

Ho: μ = 505

Ha: μ > 505

**Step 2**: Calculate the appropriate test statistic**Z-test =****(x̅ – μ)/(σ/√n)**- (509 – 505)/(62/√1000) = 4/1.96 =
**2.04**

**Step 3**: Find P-value- P = 1 – P(Z<2.04) = 1 – 0.9793 =
**0.0207**

- P = 1 – P(Z<2.04) = 1 – 0.9793 =
**Step 4**: Interpret results- 0.0207 ≅ 2.07% probability of getting this result by chance
- 0.0207 < 0.05
**Reject Ho**- Coaching seems to improve scores significantly

**Problem 1.1.**More than 200,000 people worldwide take the GMAT examination each year as they apply for MBA programs. Their scores vary Normally with mean about**μ = 525**and standard deviation about**σ = 100**. One hundred students,**n = 100**, go through a rigorous training program designed to raise their GMAT scores. The students who go through the program have an average score of**x̅ = 541.4**. Is there evidence to suggest the training program significantly improves GMAT scores?**Problem 1.2.**A newly installed rooftop solar system has been producing energy for**n = 100**days. Average energy production is**41.8**kWh per day with a standard deviation of**13.9**kWh. The solar panel manufacturer claims the panels typically produce**40**kWh per day. Is the newly installed system producing significantly more energy than estimated by the manufacturer?

- How to Estimate a Population Proportion
- Conduct a Simple Random Sample (SRS) of size
*n* - Record the count,
*x*, of some attribute attributed to a portion of the population (e.g., number of voters favoring a candidate) - Calculate the sample proportion,
*p-hat = x/n* - If
*n*is sufficiently large (≥30), we can assume*p-hat*is Normally distributed - Estimate of the population proportion mean,
*μ = p-hat* - Estimate of the population proportion std dev,

*m = z*σ*(use*z = 1.96 for 95% confidence)* - Estimate with 95% confidence interval is
*p-hat ± m* - Same procedure for a small sample size (<30) using the t distribution and substituting t* for z*

- Conduct a Simple Random Sample (SRS) of size
- Example 8.1 on p. 489 – Binge Drinking Survey
- n = 13,819
- x = 3,140
*p-hat*= 3140/13819 = 0.227- standard deviation =
*√(p-hat*(1-p-hat)/n)*= 0.00356 *p-hat ± z*√(p-hat*(1-p-hat)/n)*= 0.227 ± 1.96*(0.00356) =**0.227 ± 0.007**- {0.220,0.234}

Activity:

- A random sample of 2,454 12th-grade students were asked the following question: Taking all things together, how would you say things are these days – would you say you’re happy or not too happy? Of the responses, 2,098 students selected happy. Determine the sample proportion of students who responded they were happy and calculate a 95% confidence interval for the population proportion of 12th-grade students who are happy.
- A phone survey contacted 1,910 households in which a computer was owned and respondents were asked if they could access the Internet from their home. A total of 1,816 of the households responded yes. Calculate a 95% confidence interval to estimate the proportion of American households with internet access.
- Currently, mothers in North America are advised to put babies to sleep on their backs. This recommendation has reduced the number of cases of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). However, it is a likely cause of another problem, i.e., flat spots on babies’ heads. A study of 440 babies aged 7 – 12 weeks found that 46.6% had flat spots on their heads. Calculate a 95% confidence interval for the proportion of babies in this age group that have flat spots.
