In a random sample of 120 male customers at Burger Queen , 84 ordered fries with their burgers. a) (5) Test H 0 : p = 0.77 vs. H 1 : p < 0.77 at a 5% level of significance, where p is the proportions of male customers who order fries with their burgers.

Unformatted text preview: z 0.05 = – 1.645. Decision: The value of the test statistic is in the Rejection Region. Reject H at α = 0.05. b) (5) Suppose also that in a random sample of 80 female customers, 48 ordered fries with their burgers. Find the p-value of the test H : p M = p F vs. H 1 : p M > p F . 120 84 Y 1 1 1 ˆ = = n p = 0.70. 80 48 Y 2 2 2 ˆ = = n p = 0.60. 66 . ˆ 200 132 80 120 48 84 Y Y 2 1 2 1 = = + + = + + = n n p .

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.
