H O : No Difference (or, hamadryas = anubis in testicle size) H 1 : hamadryas and anubis baboons differ in testicle size (or, hamadryas ≠ anubis) Choose the Z-test because you have a known parameter and a sample. It’s a one sample goodness-of-fit test. Two-tailed (There is no direction to H 1 ) with alpha set at 0.01, the CV Z : ±2.58 (any lower and you have more than .5% in each tail) 1C.) 0094 . 0 , 35 . 2 8 3 . 8 5 . 49 59 . 42 = - = - = - = p N X z σ μ 2-tails = 2(0.0094) = 0.0188 Therefore, H O retained 01 . 0 p You can also write it in terms of the calculated z and the critical value of z (CV z ): 2.35 < 2.58 Therefore, H O retained 01 . 0 p 2A.) The “sperm competition hypothesis” is just a piece of theory that allows you to make a one-tailed hypothesis. It gives you a reason to suspect that hamadryas baboons have smaller testicles than anubis baboons. If hamadryas baboons have significantly smaller testicles than anubis baboons, this would support the sperm competition
