In your environment (business or personal), please describe a hypothesis test related to a decision. What would be your data? What would be your null hypothesis? What would be your alternate hypothesis? What would be your Type 1 and Type 2 errors relative to your decision? Suppose you have a p-value of 0.01, what does this mean relative to your problem and decision? Suppose the p-value is 0.20, what does this mean relative to your problem and decision?

I will take the example of my personal environment. I am travelling 60 KM daily to reach to my office from my home by my own vehicle. The average travelling time to cover the distance of 60 KM is 60 minutes. My research question is that if I will travel for a particular bus service provider the travelling time will be more than 60 minutes to cover the distance of ...

Solution Summary

This solution is comprised of a detailed explanation for a real life situation where inferential statistics is very helpful. Full description of the real life situation is provided along with the null and alternative hypothesis. After defining the situation type I and type II errors are defined with respect to the situation.

Describe a Real-Life Situation for Hypothesis Test for Two Variances

1. Describe a 5-step hypothesis test for two variances for a particular claim related to your work or life environment. You need to state the claim, define the null and alternate hypothesis, identify the test significance and the test statistic, and state the decision rule that will be used. The decision rule may be based on critical values or on the p-value approach. You do not need to collect data and actually conduct the test calculations unless you wish to do so.

2. Describe a 5-step hypothesis test using any one of the nonparametric tests in your reading material for a particular claim related to your work or life environment. You need to state the claim, define the null and alternate hypotheses, identify the test significance and the test statistic, and state the decision rule that will be used. The decision rule may be based on critical values or on the p-value approach. You do not need to collect data and actually conduct the test calculations unless you wish to do so.
