ANTH 4000/5000 Spring 08 Homework Key 4 1.) Since Ho states that p = q = 0.5, you can use Table D. Look up the probability of an N of 19 and an x of 6 (the smaller counterpart to 13) = .084 .084 > .05 Therefore, Ho retained, p > 0.05 You can also use chi-square or the long-form binomial. You can’t use the z-transformation of the binomial because Npq is less than 9. Here’s the 2 χ : H 0 : Probability of liberals = 0.5 H 1 : Probability of liberals > 0.5 1-tailed α = 0.05 df = K (categories) – 1 = 1 CVχ 2 = 2.71 2 = = - k i e o e f f f 1 2 ) ( = 5 . 9 ) 13 5 . 9 ( 2 - + 5 . 9 ) 6 5 . 9 ( 2 - = 2.58 2.58 < 2.71 H O retained, p > 0.05 2.) p = survival = .2 q = failure = .8 P (1) = 15pq 14 = 15(0.2)(0.8 14 ) = 0.1319 P (0) = q 15 = 0.8 15 = 0.0352 Probability that they won’t survive is 0.1671 or 16.71%. 3.) H O : females = 0.55 H 1 : females < 0.55 p = females = .55 females = 82
