STAT 100B Homework VII and VIII Solutions Solutions to Homework VII Prove the optimality of the likelihood ratio test. A: Suppose we want to test H 0 : X p 0 ( x ) versus H 1 : X p 1 ( x ). Given X = x , the decision rule of the likelihood ratio test is to reject H 0 if p 1 ( x ) /p 0 ( x ) > C where C is a cut-off value. For any decision rule, there are two types of errors: Truth Decision Type I error (false positive) H 0 true reject H 0 Type II error(false negative) H 0 false accept H 0 The likelihood ratio test is the most powerful test in the sense that for fixed type I error, the likelihood ratio test has the smallest type II error. Here is an illustrative proof. In the figure below, the plot on top illustrates acceptance region and rejection region of the likelihood ratio test and the corresponding type I and type II errors. Type I Type II Type II reject H 0 Accept Accept - - P 1 ( X ) CP 0 ( X ) - - reject H 0 Accept Accept - - 1 2 3 4 Type II Type II Type I If we shift the rejection region as in the plot at the bottom. Then new type I error = old type I error - area 1 + area 2 + area 3.

### What students are saying

• 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.
