H th i T ti 9-1 Hypothesis Testing 9-1.1 Statistical Hypotheses For example, suppose that we are interested in the urning rate of a solid propellant used to power aircrew burning rate of a solid propellant used to power aircrew escape systems. • Now burning rate is a random variable that can be described by a probability distribution. • Suppose that our interest focuses on the mean burning te (a parameter of this distribution) rate (a parameter of this distribution). • Specifically, we are interested in deciding whether or not the mean burning rate is 50 centimeters per second.

9-1 Hypothesis Testing 9-1.1 Statistical Hypotheses Test of a Hypothesis • A procedure leading to a decision about a particular hypothesis • Hypothesis-testing procedures rely on using the information in a random sample from the population of interest . • If this information is consistent with the hypothesis, then we will conclude that the hypothesis is true ; if this information is inconsistent with the hypothesis, we will conclude that the hypothesis is false .
