Answer to Question #1031 in Statistics and Probability for Billy Hood
a. Is this a one- or two tailed test?
b. What are H0 and Ha for this study?
c. Compute Z obt
d. What is the Z critical value (Z cv ) using a 0.05 alpha level?
e. Should H0 be rejected? What should the researcher conclude?
f. Determine the 95 % confidence interval for the population mean, based on the sample mean.
Ho : the average score of the public school equals to the mean score.
Ha : the mean score of the public school is not equal to the mean score.
c. z=(1000-1030)/(200/√90) = -1.42;
d. Zcv = 1.96
e. 1.42 < 1.96 - we cannot reject the null hypothesis. The average score of the public school can be equal to the 1030.
the upper limit : 1030 + 1.96*(200/√90) = 1071.32
the lower limit: 1030 - 1.96*(200/√90) = 988.68
d. p(z = -1.42) = 0.1556 > 0.05
