Additional Hypothesis Test Problems Page 1 of 1 The CEO of a company believes that more than 80 percent of the company's customers are “very satisfied”. To test his belief, the CEO surveys 100 customers, of which 87 say they are “very satisfied”. Based on these results, can we conclude that more than 80 percent of the customers are very satisfied? Assume a significance level of 0.05. 1. H o : p = 0.80 2. H a : p > 0.80 3. 87 . 0 100 87 ˆ = = p 4.

P-value = probability we would obtain a 87 . 0 ˆ = p or greater if p = 0.80 = proportion of the data that is greater than 87 . 0 ˆ = p = 1 – 0.9641 = 0.0359 7. P-value (0.0359) < α (0.05), so Reject H o : There is sufficient evidence at the 0.05 level of significance
