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 Night = 0.30 vs. H 1 : p Night < 0.30 at a 10% level of significance. Y = 40. n = 160. 160 40 Y ˆ = = n p = 0.25. Test Statistic: Z = ( ) 160 70 . 0 30 . 0 30 . 0 25 . 0 1 0 0 0 ˆ - = - - n p p p p = 1.38 . P-value: Left – tailed. P-value = P( Z 1.38 ) = 0.0838 . Decision: P-value < α = 0.10. Reject H 0 at α = 0.10. OR Rejection Region: Reject H 0 if Z < – z α z 0.10
