Last season, a baseball player’s performance was as follows: Day Games Night Games At bat, n i ( “attempts” ) 240 160 Base hits, Y i ( “successes” ) 72 40 a) (5) Test H 0 : p Day = 0.34 vs. H 1 : p Day < 0.34 at a 5% level of significance. Y = 72. n = 240. 240 72 Y ˆ = = n p = 0.30. Test Statistic: Z = ( ) 240 66 . 0 34 . 0 34 . 0 30 . 0 1 0 0 0 ˆ - = - - n p p p p = 1.31 . P-value: Left – tailed. P-value = P( Z 1.31 ) = 0.0951 . Decision: P-value > α = 0.05. Do NOT Reject H 0 at α = 0.05. OR Rejection Region: Reject H 0 if Z < – z α z 0.05 = – 1.645.
