The Hong Kong University of Science & Technology ISMT 111: Business Statistics Tutorial Set 7 Tests of Hypotheses for Means and Proportions De nition Null Hypothesis ( H 0 ) A hypothesis we assume to be TRUE, e.g. H 0 : μ = μ 0 Alternative Hypothesis ( H a ) A hypothesis we wish to support, e.g. H a : μ 6 = μ 0 Test Statistics ( z obs or t obs ) A value used to make the decision, e.g. z obs = X μ 0 σ / n Critical Value ( c ) A value used to separate the rejection and non-rejection regions α The Level of Signi cance 1- β The Power of the Test p -value P ( z> | z obs | ) ; P ( t> | t obs | ); the smallest value of α to reject H 0 1
