Sampling distributions
asked 2021-05-27

Test the hypothesis using the P-value approach. Be sure to verify the requirements of the test.
\(H_0:\ P=0.52\) versus \(H_1:p<0.52\)
\(N=150, X=72,\alpha=0.1\)
Is \(NP_0(1-P_0)\) greater than or equal to 10?
Use technology to find the P-Value.

Null hypothesis, \(H_0:P=0.52\)
Alternative hypothesis, \(H_1:P<0.52\)
Under \(H_0\), the population proportion is \(P_0=0.52\)
Now consider,
Since \(NP_0(1-P_0)\)  is greater than or equals to 10, use normal approximation to test the true proportion.
Given information:
Number of trials, \(N=150\)
Number of sucesses in 150 cases, \(X=72\)
Sample proportion,
Compute test statistic.
Alternative hypothesis has symbol "<", so the test is based on left-tailed.
Using Excel function "=NORMSTD(z)"
\(P-value=P(Z\leq z)\)
When testing the hypothesis \(H_0:P=0.52\) versus \(H_1:P<0.52\), using the sample information \(N=150\) and \(X=72\), the P-value of test is 0.1635

Young's modulus is a quantitative measure of stiffness of an elastic material. Suppose that for aluminum alloy sheets of a particular type, its mean value and standard deviation are 70 GPa and 1.6 GPa, respectively (values given in the article ''Influence of Material Properties Variability on Springback and Thinning in Sheet Stamping Processes: A Stochastic Analysis'' (Intl. J. of Advanced Manuf. Tech., 2010: 117–134)). If \(\bar{X}\) is the sample mean Young’s modulus for a random sample of \(n = 16\) sheets, where is the sampling distribution of \(\bar{X}\) centered, and what is the standard deviation of the \(\bar{X}\) distribution?

Consider the two samples of data from the McKenzie School. The numbers represent the time in seconds that it took each child to cover a distance of 50 meters. Girls’ Times: 8.3, 8.6, 9.5, 9.5, 9.6, 9.8, 9.9, 9.9, 10.0, 10.0, 10.0, 10.1, 10.3, 10.5 Boys’ Times: 7.9, 8.0, 8.2, 8.2, 8.4, 8.6, 8.8, 9.1, 9.3, 9.5, 9.8, 9.8, 10.0, 10.1, 10.3. Based on the sample means, do you conclude that the distributions of times from the boys’ population and girls’ population are different? Explain.
