hypotheses. H0: ___________________________ Ha: ______________________________ b. The observed test statistic value is 1.56 and the corresponding p‐value is 0.067. i. What distribution was used to compute the p‐value of 0.067? Be specific. Final answer: ____________________________ ii. Consider the following statement regarding this p‐value. If this study were repeated many times, we would see a t statistic as large or larger than 1.56 in about 6.7% of the repetitions. Insert what is missing in order for this statement to be correct. c. If the program really had no effect on average, what would have been the expected value of the test statistic? Final answer: _____________________________ 5. Nickel Batteries – Cell phones of a particular brand have used nickel‐cadmium batteries. A manufacturer has developed a new nickel‐metal hydride battery. In a study to compare the two batteries (1 = cadmium, 2 = hydride) as to “talking time” (number of minutes before recharging), independent random samples of batteries for each battery type were tested in hopes that the average talking time f...
