This conjecture may or may not be true.  The null hypothesis, symbolized by H0, hypothesis is a statistical hypothesis that states that there is no difference between a parameter and a specific value or that there is no difference between two parameters. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
8. 8. 9-8 9-2 Steps in Hypothesis Testing  The alternative hypothesis, hypothesis symbolized by H1, is a statistical hypothesis that states a specific difference between a parameter and a specific value or states that there is a difference between two parameters. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
9. 9. 9-9 9-2 Steps in Hypothesis Testing - Example  A medical researcher is interested in finding out whether a new medication will have any undesirable side effects. The researcher is particularly concerned with the pulse rate of the patients who take the medication. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000

13. 13. 9-13 9-2 Steps in Hypothesis Testing  A statistical test uses the data obtained from a sample to make a decision about whether or not the null hypothesis should be rejected. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
14. 14. 9-14 9-2 Steps in Hypothesis Testing  The numerical value obtained from a statistical test is called the test value. value  In the hypothesis-testing situation, there are four possible outcomes. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
15. 15. 9-15 9-2 Steps in Hypothesis Testing  In reality, the null hypothesis may or may not be true, and a decision is made to reject or not to reject it on the basis of the data obtained from a sample. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000

17. 17. 9-17 9-2 Steps in Hypothesis Testing  A type I error occurs if one rejects the null hypothesis when it is true.  A type II error occurs if one does not reject the null hypothesis when it is false. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
18. 18. 9-18 9-2 Steps in Hypothesis Testing  The level of significance is the maximum probability of committing a type I error. This probability is symbolized by α (Greek letter alpha). That is, P(type I error)=α .  P(type II error) = β (Greek letter beta). © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
19. 19. 9-19 9-2 Steps in Hypothesis Testing  Typical significance levels are: 0.10, 0.05, and 0.01.  For example, when α = 0.10, there is a 10% chance of rejecting a true null hypothesis. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
20. 20. 9-20 9-2 Steps in Hypothesis Testing  The critical value(s) separates the critical region from the noncritical region.  The symbol for critical value is C.V. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
21. 21. 9-21 9-2 Steps in Hypothesis Testing  The critical or rejection region is the range of values of the test value that indicates that there is a significant difference and that the null hypothesis should be rejected. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
22. 22. 9-22 9-2 Steps in Hypothesis Testing  The noncritical or nonrejection region is the range of values of the test value that indicates that the difference was probably due to chance and that the null hypothesis should not be rejected. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
23. 23. 9-23 9-2 Steps in Hypothesis Testing  A one-tailed test (right or left) indicates that the null hypothesis should be rejected when the test value is in the critical region on one side of the mean. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000

28. 28. 9-28 9-3 Large Sample Mean Test  The z test is a statistical test for the mean of a population. It can be used when n ≥ 30, or when the population is normally distributed and σ is known.  The formula for the z test is given on the next slide. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
29. 29. 9-29 9-3 Large Sample Mean Test X −µ z= σ √n where X = sample mean µ = hypothesized population mean σ = population deviation n = sample size © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
30. 30. 9-30 9-3 Large Sample Mean Test - Example  A researcher reports that the average salary of assistant professors is more than \$42,000. A sample of 30 assistant professors has a mean salary of \$43,260. At α = 0.05, test the claim that assistant professors earn more than \$42,000 a year. The standard deviation of the population is \$5230. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
31. 31. 9-31 9-3 Large Sample Mean Test - Example  Step 1: State the hypotheses and identify the claim.  H0: µ ≤ \$42,000 H1: µ > \$42,000 (claim)  Step 2: Find the critical value. Since α = 0.05 and the test is a right-tailed test, the critical value is z = +1.65.  Step 3: Compute the test value. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
32. 32. 9-32 9-3 Large Sample Mean Test - Example  Step 3: z = [43,260 – 42,000]/[5230/√30] = 1.32.  Step 4: Make the decision. Since the test value, +1.32, is less than the critical value, +1.65, and not in the critical region, the decision is “Do not reject the null hypothesis.” © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
33. 33. 9-33 9-3 Large Sample Mean Test - Example  Step 5: Summarize the results. There is not enough evidence to support the claim that assistant professors earn more on average than \$42,000 a year.  See the next slide for the figure. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000

35. 35. 9-35 9-3 Large Sample Mean Test - Example  A national magazine claims that the average college student watches less television than the general public. The national average is 29.4 hours per week, with a standard deviation of 2 hours. A sample of 30 college students has a mean of 27 hours. Is there enough evidence to support the claim at α = 0.01? © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
36. 36. 9-36 9-3 Large Sample Mean Test - Example  Step 1: State the hypotheses and identify the claim.  H0: µ ≥ 29.4 H1: µ < 29.4 (claim)  Step 2: Find the critical value. Since α = 0.01 and the test is a left-tailed test, the critical value is z = –2.33.  Step 3: Compute the test value. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
37. 37. 9-37 9-3 Large Sample Mean Test - Example  Step 3: z = [27– 29.4]/[2/√30] = – 6.57.  Step 4: Make the decision. Since the test value, – 6.57, falls in the critical region, the decision is to reject the null hypothesis. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000

To see if the average cost of rehabilitation is different at a large hospital, a researcher selected a random sample of 35 stroke victims and found that the average cost of their rehabilitation is \$25,226. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
41. 41. 9-41 9-3 Large Sample Mean Test - Example  The standard deviation of the population is \$3,251. At α = 0.01, can it be concluded that the average cost at a large hospital is different from \$24,672?  Step 1: State the hypotheses and identify the claim.  H0: µ = \$24,672 H1: µ ≠ \$24,672 (claim) © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
42. 42. 9-42 9-3 Large Sample Mean Test - Example  Step 2: Find the critical values. Since α = 0.01 and the test is a two-tailed test, the critical values are z = –2.58 and +2.58.  Step 3: Compute the test value.  Step 3: z = [25,226 – 24,672]/[3,251/√35] = 1.01. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
43. 43. 9-43 9-3 Large Sample Mean Test - Example  Step 4: Make the decision.

45. 45. 9-45 9-3 P-Values  Besides listing an α value, many computer statistical packages give a P- value for hypothesis tests. The P-value is the actual probability of getting the sample mean value or a more extreme sample mean value in the direction of the alternative hypothesis (> or <) if the null hypothesis is true. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
46. 46. 9-46 9-3 P-Values  The P-value is the actual area under the standard normal distribution curve (or other curve, depending on what statistical test is being used) representing the probability of a particular sample mean or a more extreme sample mean occurring if the null hypothesis is true. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
47. 47. 9-47 9-3 P-Values - Example  A researcher wishes to test the claim that the average age of lifeguards in Ocean City is greater than 24 years. She selects a sample of 36 guards and finds the mean of the sample to be 24.7 years, with a standard deviation of 2 years. Is there evidence to support the claim at α = 0.05? Find the P-value. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
48. 48. 9-48 9-3 P-Values - Example  Step 1: State the hypotheses and identify the claim.  H0: µ ≤ 24 H1: µ > 24 (claim)  Step 2: Compute the test value. 24.7 − 24 z= = 2.10 2 36 © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
49. 49. 9-49 9-3 P-Values - Example  Step 3: Using Table E in Appendix C, find the corresponding area under the normal distribution for z = 2.10. It is 0.4821  Step 4: Subtract this value for the area from 0.5000 to find the area in the right tail. 0.5000 – 0.4821 = 0.0179 Hence the P-value is 0.0179. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
50. 50. 9-50 9-3 P-Values - Example  Step 5: Make the decision. Since the P-value is less than 0.05, the decision is to reject the null hypothesis.  Step 6: Summarize the results. There is enough evidence to support the claim that the average age of lifeguards in Ocean City is greater than 24 years. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
51. 51. 9-51 9-3 P-Values - Example  A researcher claims that the average wind speed in a certain city is 8 miles per hour. A sample of 32 days has an average wind speed of 8.2 miles per hour. The standard deviation of the sample is 0.6 mile per hour. At α = 0.05, is there enough evidence to reject the claim? Use the P-value method. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
52. 52. 9-52 9-3 P-Values - Example  Step 1: State the hypotheses and identify the claim.  H0: µ = 8 (claim) H1: µ ≠ 8  Step 2: Compute the test value. 8.2 − 8 z= = 1.89 0.6 32 © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
53. 53. 9-53 9-3 P-Values - Example  Step 3: Using table E, find the corresponding area for z = 1.89. It is 0.4706.  Step 4: Subtract the value from 0.5000. 0.5000 – 0.4706 = 0.0294 © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
54. 54. 9-54 9-3 P-Values - Example  Step 5: Make the decision: Since this test is two-tailed, the value 0.0294 must be doubled; 2(0.0294) = 0.0588. Hence, the decision is not to reject the null hypothesis, since the P-value is greater than 0.05.  Step 6: Summarize the results. There is not enough evidence to reject the claim that the average wind speed is 8 miles per hour. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
55. 55. 9-55 9-4 Small Sample Mean Test  When the population standard deviation is unknown and n < 30, the z test is inappropriate for testing hypotheses involving means.  The t test is used in this case.  Properties for the t distribution are given in Chapter 8. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
56. 56. 9-56 9-4 Small Sample Mean Test - Formula for t test X −µ t= s n where X = sample mean µ = hypothesized population mean s = sample standard deviation n = sample size degrees of freedom = n − 1 © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
57. 57. 9-57 9-4 Small Sample Mean Test - Example  A job placement director claims that the average starting salary for nurses is \$24,000. A sample of 10 nurses has a mean of \$23,450 and a standard deviation of \$400. Is there enough evidence to reject the director’s claim at α = 0.05? © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
58. 58. 9-58 9-4 Small Sample Mean Test - Example  Step 1: State the hypotheses and identify the claim.  H0: µ = \$24,000 (claim) H1: µ ≠ \$24,000  Step 2: Find the critical value. Since α = 0.05 and the test is a two-tailed test, the critical values are t = –2.262 and +2.262 with d.f. = 9. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
59. 59. 9-59 9-4 Small Sample Mean Test - Example  Step 3: Compute the test value. t = [23,450 – 24,000]/[400/√10] = – 4.35.  Step 4: Reject the null hypothesis, since – 4.35 < – 2.262.  Step 5: There is enough evidence to reject the claim that the starting salary of nurses is \$24,000. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000

69. 69. 9-69 9-6 Assumptions for the Chi-Square Test for a Single Variance  The sample must be randomly selected from the population.  The population must be normally distributed for the variable under study.  The observations must be independent of each other. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
70. 70. 9-70 9-6 Variance Test - Example  An instructor wishes to see whether the variation in scores of the 23 students in her class is less than the variance of the population. The variance of the class is 198. Is there enough evidence to support the claim that the variation of the students is less than the population variance (σ 2 = 225) at α = 0.05? © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
71. 71. 9-71 9-6 Variance Test - Example  Step 1: State the hypotheses and identify the claim.  H0: σ 2 ≥ 225 H1: σ 2 < 225 (claim)  Step 2: Find the critical value. Since this test is left-tailed and α = 0.05, use the value 1 – 0.05 = 0.95. The d.f. = 23 – 1 = 22. Hence, the critical value is 12.338. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
72. 72. 9-72 9-6 Variance Test - Example  Step 3: Compute the test value. χ 2 = (23 – 1)(198)/225 = 19.36.  Step 4: Make a decision. Do not reject the null hypothesis, since the test value falls outside the the critical region. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000

74. 74. 9-74 9-6 Variance Test  Note: When the test is two-tailed, you will need to find χ 2(left) and χ 2(right) and check whether the test value is less than χ 2(left) or whether it is greater than χ 2(right) in order to reject the null hypothesis. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
75. 75. 9-7 Confidence Intervals and9-75 Hypothesis Testing - Example  Sugar is packed in 5-pound bags. An inspector suspects the bags may not contain 5 pounds. A sample of 50 bags produces a mean of 4.6 pounds and a standard deviation of 0.7 pound. Is there enough evidence to conclude that the bags do not contain 5 pounds as stated, at α = 0.05?

76. 76. 9-7 Confidence Intervals and9-76 Hypothesis Testing - Example  H0: µ = 5 H1: µ ≠ 5 (claim)  The critical values are +1.96 and – 1.96 = 4.6 − 5.00 = − 4.04  The test value is z . 0 7 50  Since – 4.04 < –1.96, the null hypothesis is rejected.  There is enough evidence to support the claim that the bags do not weigh 5 pounds. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
77. 77. 9-7 Confidence Intervals and9-77 Hypothesis Testing - Example  The 95% confidence interval for the mean is given by s s X −z ⋅ <µ<X+z ⋅ α2 n α2 n  0.7  < µ < 4.6 + (1.96) 0.7  4.6 − (1.96)     50   50  4.406 < µ < 4.794  Notice that the 95% confidence interval of µ does not contain the hypothesized value µ = 5. Hence, there is agreement between the hypothesis test and the confidence interval. © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000
