The hypothesis H 0 : θ = 1 is rejected and H 1 : θ > 1 is accepted if the observed Y 4 c . a) Find the constant c so that the significance level is α = 0.05. Recall: Let X 1 , X 2 , … , X n be i.i.d. Uniform ( 0 , θ ) . Y n = max X i . F max X i ( x ) = n x θ , f max X i ( x ) = n n x n θ 1 - , 0 < x < θ . b) Determine the power function of the test.

2. Let X 1 , X 2 , … , X 16 be a random sample of size n = 16 from a N ( μ , σ 2 ) distribution. We are interested in testing H 0 : σ = 39 vs. H 1 : σ > 39. Recall: If X 1 , X 2 , … , X n are i.i.d. N ( μ , σ 2 ), then ( 29 2 2 σ S 1 n - is χ 2 ( n – 1 ). a) Find the “best” critical ( rejection ) region with the significance level α = 0.05. b) Find the power of the test from part (a) at σ = 66.7. c)
