A. Look for the definitions of the following terms related to hypothesis testing.
1. Null Hypothesis
2. Level of Significance
3. Type I error

Answers (1)

There are two types of hypotheses: one is the null hypothesis and the other is the alternative hypothesis.
The null hypothesis states there is no significant difference between the population mean and observed mean.
Null hypothesis generally expressed as \(H_{0}\).
The level of significance means the probability of rejection of the null hypothesis when it is actually true.
A type-I error is rejecting the null hypothesis when it is true.

Hypothesis Testing Review
For each problem below, simply identify the null and alternative hypotheses. Use appropriate notation/symbols. You do not have to run any hypothesis tests, although it's good practice and I'll post answers for all of them.
1) A simple random sample of 44 men from a normally distributed population results in a standard deviation of 10.7 beats per minute. The normal range of pulse rates of adults is typically given as 60 to 100 beats per minute. If the range rule of thumb is applied to that normal range, the result is a standard deviation of 10 beats per minute. Use the sample results with a 0.10 significance level to test the claim that pulse rates of men have a standard deviation equal to 10 beats per minute.
2) In 1997, a survey of 880 households showed that 145 of them use e-mail. Use those sample results to test the claim that more than 15% of households use e-mail. Use a 0.05 significance level.

A company is marketing a new product they say works better than the traditional test tube. There is so much interest in the product that 30 different labs around the world are testing the claim that this product is actually better. If each study uses an alpha level (alpha) of .10, and if the null hypothesis is true (that the test tube isn't any better that the traditional one), how many of the hypothesis tests would we expect to incorrectly find statistical significance (that is, conclude that the new test tube is better, when it actually isn't)?

As access to computers becomes more and more prevalent, we see the P-value reported in hypothesis testing more frequently. Review the use of the P-value in hypothesis testing. What is the difference between the level of significance of a test and the P-value? Considering both the P-value and level of significance. under what conditions do we reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis?
