H 0 : μ = μ 0 vs. H 1 : μ < μ 0 Test statistic: t = ¯ x - μ 0 s/ n . Rejection region for level α test: z ≤ - t α,n - 1 . Ex. IQ of a dog, X i N ( μ, σ 2 ) , where σ is unknown. Test H 0 : μ = 100 vs. H 1 : μ < 100 at level α = 0 . 05. > x<-c(30, 25, 70, 110, 40, 80, 50, 60, 100, 60) > t=(mean(x)-100)/(sd(x)/sqrt(10)) > t [1] -4.205156 > qt(0.05,9) [1] -1.833113 A simpler method is to use command t.test . >help(t.test) ... t.test(x,alternative=c("two.sided", "less", "greater"),conf.level = 0.95) ... > t.test(x,mu=100,alternative="less", conf.level=0.95) One Sample t-test data: x t = -4.2036, df = 9, p-value = 0.001147 alternative hypothesis: true mean is less than 100 95 percent confidence interval: -Inf 78.8531 sample estimates: mean of x 62.5 2.

Example 8.11. 47 out of 102 doctors did not know the generic name for the drug methadone.What is methadone? Methadone is a rigorously well-tested medication that is safe and efficacious for the treatment of narcotic withdrawal and dependence. Can you conclude that fewer than half of all doctors know the generic name for methadone? Test it at 1% level. > p<-47/102 > (p-0.5)/sqrt(0.5*0.5/102) [1] -0.792118 > qnorm(0.01) [1] -2.326348 4.

    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.
