Think of an application where you can use hypothesis testing to test a premise. Use .05 for your alpha and
give the scenario. Set up the problem, solve it and state your conclusions. See the example below.
First post: First summarize the 3 videos and make a note of what you learned. Then create your own
hypothesis test. For instance, XYZ car company boast that it’s new car Eco Auto gets at least 59 miles to the
gallon. Given a sample mean of 57 and a standard deviation of 3.5 where 35 people were tested, find the z
value and p value. Hint: Use the P value calculator in the announcements to find the p value. Note: On this
one you do not need to attach an excel spreadsheet.
Ha: µ<59 You can put this in excel or your calculator = (57-59)/(3.5/35^.5) =-3.38 Using the z to p value calculator https://www.socscistatistics.com/pvalues/normaldistribution.aspx with α=.05, 1 tailed test and z=-3.38, you get p=.000362 ____________________________________________________________________________________ or enter this in excel =norm.dist(57,59,3.5/35^.5,true) and hit enter .000362 This is the z value and in this case the p value If you have a 2 tailed- test, then multiply the value you get by 2. and hit enter Since p < .05, you reject the null. You will want to respond to 2 classmates. Keep the conversation going by mentioning the video and tell what you learned. Also mention how the hypothesis test helped you.
