Since the p-value is less than α=0.05, there is evidence to suggest that there is a significant difference between the four drug regimens with respect to the proportion of patients suffering severe adverse events.b)It may be worth it for an investigation of which method is the most effective. TPA costs 10 times as much as streptokinase does, and if it turns out to be just as or less effective than the streptokinase the community can save a large amount of money on this drug regimen. #9.36: Ho: µ12345; Ha: not all µ’s are equalParts inspectionObs.

Garcia 2a)At the 0.05 level of significance, the χ2test reveals (p-value=.3767)>(α=.05), and the test statistic=4.2222 (using df=4) is well inside the critical value for χ2. This lets us conclude that there is not enough evidence of a significant difference (and thus to reject the null hypothesis) in the proportion of defective parts produced on the various days of the week.b)If on Friday 24 defective parts were produced, then the χ2test statistic is 18.75 (well outside the 95% C.I. for chi-squared) and the p-value is well below alpha, indicating that there is a significant evidence to reject the null hypothesis and conclude that one day of the week is significantly different than the rest with respect to defective parts produced.
