Module 14: Hypothesis Testing for Single Populations Part 1This module is divided into 2 parts:I.Hypothesis Testing for a Single Population Mean, Large Sample Size (n 30)II. Hypothesis Testing for a Single Population Mean, Small Sample Size (n < 30)This is not fundamentally different from what we were doing in Module 13, but now we’ll add some complexity, including the Finite Correction Factor FCF).•

Module 14: Hypothesis Testing for Single Populations Part 1I.Hypothesis Testing for a Single Population Mean, Large Sample Size (n 30)Example 1:A nationwide survey of CPAs found that the average net income for sole practitioner CPAs was $74,914. A believes this figure does not apply to sole practitioner CPAs in the state of South Dakota. The researcher takes a random sample of 112 sole practitioner CPAs in South Dakota which results in a sample mean net income of $78, 695 with a sample standard deviation of $14,530. At the .05 level of significance, test to determine if the mean net income of sole practitioner CPAs in South Dakota is different from the national average. Step 1: Note: In this test, we want to determine if the net income is different. We are not trying to determine whether net income is higher or lower than $74,914, but rather if it is “different”. That makes this a 2-tail test since the change is ambiguous and could mean it is either higher or lower than $74,914.H0:= $74,914Ha: $74,914Step 2: Since we’re testing for a population mean and the sample size is 30 or greater, we can use the normal (Z) distribution. There is no mention of a population size so we don’t have to worry about the finite correction factor (FCF). Z = Step 3: α = .05•
