Use the specified α to find the critical value 5 Collect the sample data and calculate the value of the test statistic 6 Decide whether to reject H by using the test statistic and the critical value rule 7 Interpret the statistical results in real-world terms and assess their practical importance lecture 20, Hypothesis Testing II z Tests about a Population Mean: σ Known Testing a “Greater Than” Alternative Critical Value Rule The p-value Approach Testing a “Less Than” Alternative Critical Value Rule The p-value Approach Summary of Testing a One-Sided Alternative lecture 20, Hypothesis Testing II Testing a “Greater Than” Alternative Critical Value Rule Testing a “Greater Than” Alternative: Trash Bag Case Tests show the trash bag has a mean breaking strength μ close to but not exceeding 50 lbs The new bag’s mean breaking strength is not known and is in question, but it is hoped it is stronger than the current one Assume that σ = 1 . 65 lecture 20,...
