Idea Behind Hypothesis Tests (for ) To settle the dispute… 1. Take a sample (only one) 2. Calculate s If s = 10 , believe the king If s > 10 , believe the king If s < 10 , it depends! If s < 10 but close to 10, still believe the king If s < 10 but far from 10, then believe the peasant 𝜎
Hypothesis Tests for (or ) Formulas and Info Quantity you are performing a hypothesis test for: (or ) 𝜒 2 = (𝑛 − 1)? 2 𝜎 2 Condition: Population from which samples are drawn have a NORMAL distribution Probability distribution: - distribution Test statistic formula: Significance level: 𝑑𝑓 = 𝑛 − 1 Degrees of freedom: (helps you determine the cutoff of the rejection region) 𝜎 𝜎 𝜒 2 𝜎 2 𝜎 2

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
