Unformatted text preview: 0%, so our probability is not small enough to be considered unusual. Which one is your conclusion “in context” (put an “X” next to your choice): “There is not sufficient evidence at the 0.10 significance level to support the claim that the percentage of females ordering merchandise or services by phone has declined from the 2005 level.” “There is sufficient evidence at the 0.10 significance level to support the claim that the percentage of females ordering merchandise or services by phone has declined from the 2005 level.” b) Find a 95% confidence interval for the proportion of all females who have ordered merchandise or services by phone in the last 12 months. The name of the TI-83/84 calculator function you will be using: 1-PropZInt State your answer in words: We are 95% confident that the population proportion (the proportion if ALL females who have ordered merchandise or services by phone in the last 12 months) is between 33.941% and 42.459%. Note that our hypothesized population proportion of 39.4% is in this interval, that's why our hypothesis test did not reject it. c) What would a Type I Error be in this case? (You need to mention H0 and H1 in your answer – i.e. Just saying “False Alarm” or “Missed Opportunity” is NOT enough). We conclude "Reject H0 and Accept H1", but we are wrong just because of sampling error. So the proportion if ALL females who have ordered merchandise or services by phone in the last 12 months is 39.4%, but we said it was less than this. This is a False Alarm. The Null Hypothesis was correct but we rejected it. d) What would a Type II Error be in this case? (You need to mention H0 and H1 in your answer – i.e. Just saying “False Alarm” or “Missed Opportunity” is NOT enough). We conclude "Failed to Reject H0", but we are wrong just because of sampling error. So the proportion if ALL females who have ordered merchandise or services by phone in the last 12 months is less than 39.4%, but we failed to catch it. This is a Missed Opportunity. ===...
