Hypothesis Testing; Significance Level

I) State the null and alternate hypothesis. II) Determine the rejection region. For example "if {see attachment}, then reject {see attachment}". III) Determine the Test Statistic. IV) Conclude either "Reject " or "Do not reject " based on your analysis and answer the question (either YES or NO) . V) Determine the p value of

Calculation of Expectation

Z ~ N (0,1), other variables, except those dependent on Z are constants. The problem is to find expectation of C. Please, express expectation in terms of constant and show how you do that. S0=50; K=52 r=0.05 sigma=0.5 T=30

Hypothesis testing (Two population)

A sample of 65 observations is selected from one population. The sample mean is 2.67 and the sample standard deviation is 0.75. A sample of 50 observations is selected from a second population. The sample mean is 2.59 and the sample standard deviation is 0.66. Conduct the following test of hypothesis using the .08 significanc

Question: An analyst working at BC Statistics is compiling a report on the use of the internet at home. In 1997, 250 randomly selected people were asked about the average amount of time spent on the internet per week. The same 250 people were re-surveyed in June 2000. Which test should the analyst to determine whether the home u

Kruskall-Wallis Test.

Kruskall-Wallis Test A large corporation has been sending many of its first-level managers to an off-site supervisory skills course. Four different management development centers offer this course, and the corporation wants to determine whether they differ in the quality of training provided. A sample of 20 employees who have

A national manufacturer of ball bearings is experimenting with two different processes for producing precision ball bearings. It is important that the diameters be as close as possible to an industry standard. The researcher is interested in determining whether there is evidence that the two processes yields different average errors from the industry standard.
