THE UNIVERSITY OF HONG KONG DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS AND ACTUARIAL SCIENCE STAT 1302 PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS II (2009-10) Assignment 4 (Sketch Solution) Section A A1. Let X be the no. of marked ﬁsh among a sample of 2,000 caught from the lake and N be the total no. of ﬁsh in the lake. (a) (i) H 0 : N 21000 vs H 1 : N > 21000. (ii) Note that the likelihood is ( N ) = ( 1000 100 )( N - 1000 1900 ) / ( N 2000 ) . Consider ( N +1) /‘ ( N ) = 1 - 100( N - 19999)( N +1) - 1 ( N - 2899) - 1 > 1 , 2900 N 19998 , = 1 , N = 19999 , < 1 , N 20000 . Thus ( N ) increases as N increases up to 19,999, stays constant at N = 19999 and 20000, and then decreases as N increases beyond 20,000. Under H 1 , ( N ) is maximized at N = ˆ N 1 = 21000. Under H 0 , ( N ) is maximized at N = ˆ N 0 = 20000 (or 19999). The likelihood ratio is ( ˆ N 1 ) /‘ ( ˆ N 0 ) = 0 . 872511. (b) (i) H 0 : N > 21000 vs H 1 : N 21000. (ii) Under H 0 , ( N ) is maximized at N = ˆ N 0 = 21000. Under H 1 , ( N ) is maximized at N = ˆ N 1 = 20000 (or 19999). The likelihood ratio is ( ˆ N 1 ) /‘ ( ˆ N 0 ) = 1 . 146118. A2. Let X s ,X m ,X n be nos. substantially, mildly and not improved by the ordinary treatment re- spectively. Deﬁne Y s ,Y m ,Y n for the new treatment similarly. Then ( X s ,X m ,X n ) Multinomial(54; p s ,p m ,p n ) and ( Y s ,Y m ,Y n ) Multinomial(54; q s ,q m ,q n ) . (i) H 0 : p s = q s ,p m = q m vs H 1 : p s < q s ,p m < q m . (ii) The likelihood is ( p,q ) p 12 s p 6 m p 36 n q 18 s q 12 m q 24 n . Under H 1 , is max’d at p s = 12 / 54, p m = 6 / 54, p n = 36 / 54, q s = 18 / 54, q m = 12 / 54 and q n = 24 / 54. Under H 0 , is max’d at p s = q s = 30 / 108, p m = q m = 18 / 108 and p n = q n = 60 / 108. The likeihood ratio is 16 . 9724. A3. Let X be the no. of heads. Then X Binomial(100 ,p ), p [0 , 1]. (i) H 0 : p = 1 / 2 vs H 1 : p 6 = 1 / 2. (ii) The likelihood is ( p ) p 60 (1 - p ) 40 , maximized at p = ˆ p = 0 . 6. The likelihood ratio is p ) /‘ (1 / 2) = 7 . 48987. 1

A4. (i) H 0 : θ = ψ vs H 1 : θ < ψ . (ii) The likelihood is ( θ,ψ ) = θ 5 e - 30 θ ψ 11 e - 30 ψ . Under H 0 , ( θ,θ ) is max’d at θ = ˆ θ 0 = 4 / 15. Under H 1 , ( θ,ψ ) is max’d at θ = ˆ θ = 1 / 6 and ψ = ˆ ψ = 11 / 30. The likelihood ratio is ( ˆ θ, ˆ ψ ) /‘ ( ˆ θ 0 , ˆ θ 0 ) = 3 . 1676. A5. Let X 1 ,X 2 be the nos. of breakdowns on two consecutive days. Assume X i Poisson( λ ), i = 1 , 2, independently. (i) The probability in question is P ( X 1 = 0) = e - λ . We want to test H 0 : e - λ > 3 / 4 (i.e. λ < ln(4 / 3)) vs H 1 : e - λ 3 / 4 (i.e. λ ln(4 / 3)).
