Question 1.Suppose we’d like to use hypothesis testing to shed light on this question. We’vewritten down an alternative hypothesis below. What is a reasonable null hypothesis?Question 2.What’s a good test statistic for this hypothesis test?
Question 3.Write a function calledlanding_test_statistic. It should take two arguments:an "x" location and a "y" location (both numbers). It should return the value of your test statisticfor a landing at those coordinates.
Question 4.The next three cells compute a P-value using your test statistic. Describe the testprocedure in words. Is there a simulation involved? If so, what is being simulated? If not, whynot? Where are we getting the data from? What kind of calculations are being performed? Howare we calculating our p-value?Hint:Think about what asimulationactually consists of.10
