2.Calculate the test statistic: 3.Find the P-value (observed significance level): using a standard normal distribution; each case corresponds to the alternative hypotheses listed above. 4.Conclusion: Reject H0if the P-value is less than the level of significance; otherwise, do not reject H0. Write a conclusion in statistical terms as well as a practical conclusion in the context of the problem.

BUSI 1013: S TATISTICS FOR B USINESS 9 Two-sample z -interval for p 1 - p 2 Why? To locate the difference between two population proportions p 1 - p 2 . When? Under the same conditions as for the z -test listed above. How: 2 2 2 1 1 1 2 1 ˆ 1 ˆ ˆ 1 ˆ ˆ ˆ n p p n p p z p p c where c z is the critical value from the standard normal distribution corresponding to level C confidence. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Now, our week assignment: 1. Consider this hypothesis test: H0: p1 - p2 = 0 Ha: p1 - p2 > 0 Here p1 is the population proportion of yes”of Population 1 and p2 is the population proportion of yes” ofPopulation 2. Use the statistics data from a simple random sample of each of the two populations to complete the following: (8 points) Population 1 Population 2 Sample Size (n) 400 600 Number of yes”300 426 a. Compute the test statistic z.

BUSI 1013: S TATISTICS FOR B USINESS 10 b. What is the p-value? c. Should H0 be rejected? Use the p-value and a level of significance of 0.05 to justify your answer. 2 2. Use the data in BUSI1013 Bank Dataset.xlsx (from Unit 1 Exercise Question 2) to answer this question. (4 points each; 8 Points in total) a. Perform a statistical test to see whether the proportion of members who would recommend the Bank to their family and friends have increased because of the change.
