STAT 410 Homework #11 Spring 2008 (due Friday, April 11, by 3:00 p.m.) 1. Let X 1 , X 2 , … , X 25 be a random sample from a N ( μ , σ 2 = 100 ) population, and suppose the null hypothesis H 0 : μ = 100 is to be tested. a) If the alternative hypothesis is H 1 : μ 100, compute the power of the appropriate test at μ 1 = 101. Use α = 0.05. b) If the alternative hypothesis is H 1 : μ > 100, compute the power of the appropriate test at μ 1 = 101. Use α = 0.05. c) For the test in (a) compute the p-value associated with X = 103.5. d) For the test in (b) compute the p-value associated with X = 103.5. 2. 5.1.3 “Hint”: Table II ( p. 673 ) gives quantiles (percentiles) of χ 2 distribution. 3. 5.4.13 4. 8.2.3 Hint: Do NOT look at the answer at the back of the textbook. 5. 5.5.4 6. 5.5.9 7. 5.5.12

8. Let X have a Binomial distribution with the number of trials n = 5 and with p either 0.20 or 0.30. To test H 0 : p = 0.20 vs. H 1 : p = 0.30, we will use the rejection ( critical ) region “Reject H 0 if X
