Decide whether the normal distribution can be used to approximate the binomial distribution. If it can, use the z-test to test the claim about the population proportion p for the given sample statistics and level of significance a.
A. Claim: p < 0.70; a = 0.01 Statistics: p = 0.50, n = 68
B. Claim: p < 0.50; a = 0.10 Statistics: p = 0.71, n = 129
Test the claim about the indicated population parameter with ? a (X^2) -test using the given sample statistics and level of significance a. Assume the population is normally distributed.
A. Claim: ? ^2 ? 60 a = 0.025
Statistics: s?2 = 72.7, n = 15
B. Claim: ? ? 0.035: a = 0.01
Statistics: s = 0.026, n = 16
I have worked these several times but can't seem to get the answer. Thanks© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 17, 2018, 11:13 am ad1c9bdddf
Thanks for letting me work on your post. Here is my explanation:
A. since np=68*0.50=34>5, nq=68*0.5=34>5, we could use the normal distribution can be used to approximate the binomial distribution.
Null hypothesis: p>=0.70
Alternative hypothesis: p<0.70
At 0.01 significance level, the critical z value is -2.326
test value ...
The normal distribution to approximate binomial distributions are examined.
Determining if the normal approximation to the binomial distribution should be used.
Determine if the normal approximation to the binomial distribution could be used for the following problems:
A.) A study found that 1% of Social Security recipients are too young to vote. 800 Social Security recipients are randomly selected.
B.) A study found that 30% of the people in a community use the library in one year. 15 people from the community were selected.View Full Posting Details
