MAT 133-Chpt. 10:Hypothesis Testing Name_________________________
Project and Chapter 10 Exam Date__________________________
To complete this assignment, you will do 6 hypothesis testing problems.
• You will do each of the problems on your own notebook paper that is labeled with your
name and each problem number.
• The assignment must be completed and submitted as a PDF (using CamScanner, Genius
Scan, etc) to JetNet, by Friday, December 11, 2020.
• Please Note: This due date cannot be changed.
• Each of the problems will be completed using the P-Value Method for Hypothesis Testing.
• To receive credit, each problem must be completed using the following steps:
Preliminary Steps:
First, we must verify the requirements to perform the hypothesis test:
1. Random:
2. Independent:
3. Normal?
P-Value Method:
Step 1: Determine the null and alternate hypotheses.
(Note: 0p is the assumed value of the population proportion.)
0H =

Step 2: The level of significance is:
Step 3: Find the test statistic: The sample proportion is: ˆ

Note: Circle the correct response.
This is a left-tailed two-tailed right-tailed test.
Step 4: Determine the P-Value using the test output on the calculator.
i. Show(write down) what you entered in the calculator and the results it gave you.
ii. Label the values of the test statistic and p-value on the diagram and shade the
appropriate area.
Step 5: Reject 0H if the P value− (P-value is less than alpha)
Be sure to show how you decided what decision to make.
Step 6: State the conclusion.

P-Value Method for Hypothesis Testing
Hypothesis Testing Using the P-Value Approach
If the probability of getting a sample statistic as extreme or more extreme than the one
obtained is small under the assumption the statement in the null hypothesis is true, reject the
null hypothesis.
Definition
A P-value is the probability of observing a sample statistic as extreme or more extreme
than one observed under the assumption that the statement in the null hypothesis is
true. Put another way, the P-value is the likelihood or probability that a sample will
result in a statistic such as the one obtained if the null hypothesis is true.
Solving Hypothesis-Testing Problems (P-Value Method)
Step 1 State the hypotheses and identify the claim.
Step 2 Compute the test value.
Step 3 Find the P-value.
Step 4 Make the decision.
Step 5 Summarize the results.
If P value− , reject the null hypothesis.
If P value− , do not reject the null hypothesis.

1) Testing a Hypothesis about a Population Proportion: Large Sample Size
In 1997, 46% of Americans said they did not trust the media “when it comes to
reporting the news fully, accurately and fairly”.
• In a 2007 poll of 1010 adults nationwide, 525 stated they did not trust the media.
• Is there enough evidence to support the claim that the percentage of Americans that do
not trust the media to report fully and accurately has increased since 1997?
Test the hypothesis using the P-value method at the 0.05 = level of significance, showing all
steps.
2) People Who Are Trying to Avoid Trans Fats
A dietitian claims that 60% of people are trying to avoid trans-fats in their diets.
• She randomly selected 200 people and found that 128 people stated that they were trying
to avoid trans-fats in their diets.
• Is there enough evidence to show that the number of people trying to avoid trans-fats in
their diet is different than 60%?
Test the hypothesis using the P-value method at the 0.05 = level of significance, showing all
steps.
3) Survey on Call-Waiting Service
A telephone company representative estimates that 40% of its customers have call- waiting
service.
• To test this hypothesis, she selected a random sample of 100 customers
and found that 37% had call waiting.
• Is there enough evidence to show that the number of customers with call-waiting
is less than 40%?
Test the hypothesis using the P-value method at the 0.01 = level of significance, showing all
steps.

1) Hypothesis about a Population Mean: Large Sample
• The mean height of American males is 69.5 inches.
• The heights of the 43 male U.S. presidents (Washington through Obama) have a mean 70.78
inches and a standard deviation of 2.77 inches.
• Treating the 43 presidents as a simple random sample, is there enough evidence to suggest
that U.S. presidents are taller than the average American male.
Test the hypothesis using the P-value method at the 0.05 = level of significance, showing all
steps.
2) Costs of Men’s Athletic Shoes
• A researcher claims that the average cost of men’s athletic shoes is less than $80.
• He selects a random sample of 36 pairs of shoes from a catalog and finds the
following costs (in dollars). (The costs have been rounded to the nearest dollar.)
• Is there enough evidence to support the researcher’s claim that the average cost of men’s
athletic shoes is less than $80?
• Assume = 19.2s .
Test the hypothesis using the P-value method at the = 0.10 level of significance, showing all
steps.
3) Cost of Rehabilitation
The Medical Rehabilitation Education Foundation reports that the average cost of rehabilitation
for stroke victims is $24,672.
• A researcher thinks the average cost of rehabilitation is different.
• To see if the average cost of rehabilitation is different at a particular hospital, the researcher
selects a random sample of 35 stroke victims at the hospital and finds that the average cost of
their rehabilitation is $25,226.
• Is there enough evidence to support the researcher’s claim that the average cost of
rehabilitation for stroke victims is different from $24,672?
• The sample standard deviation is: = $3251s .
