Week 7 Assignment – Developing Hypothesis and Understanding Possible Conclusions for Proportions
Activity 1
Question
Colin is a student in a statistics course looking to show whether the proportion of games played that are won by the visiting team in a certain professional lacrosse league is 50%. Colin randomly selects 83 games from the past few seasons and finds that 37 of the games were won by the visiting team. What are the null and alternative hypotheses for this hypothesis test?
Select the correct answer below:
- {H0:p=0.5Ha:p<0.5
- {H0:p=0.5Ha:p>0.5
- {H0:p≠5Ha:p=0.5

Question
A researcher claims that the proportion of college students who plan to participate in community service after graduation is greater than 35%. To test this claim, a survey asked 500 randomly selected college students if they planned to perform community service after graduation. Of those students, 195 indicated they planned to perform community service.
The following is the setup for the hypothesis test:
{H0:p=0.35Ha:p>0.35
Find the test statistic for this hypothesis test for a proportion. Round your answer to 2 decimal places.

Question
Devin is a researcher for a pharmaceutical company testing whether a new prescription pain medication causes patients to develop nausea. The medication would have to be scrapped if more than 6% of patients who take the medication develop nausea on a regular basis. Devin randomly selected 461 patients for a clinical trial of the medication and found that 27 of the patients developed nausea on a regular basis. What are the null and alternative hypotheses for this hypothesis test?
Select the correct answer below:
- {H0:p=0.06; Ha:p<0.06
- {H0:p=0.06; Ha:p≠06
- {H0:p=0.06; Ha:p>0.06
- {H0:p≠06; Ha:p=0.06

Activity 8
Question
An airline company claims in a recent advertisement that more than 94% of passenger luggage that it lost is recovered and reunited with the customer within 1 day. Hunter is a graduate student studying statistics. For a research project, Hunter wants to find out whether there is convincing evidence in support of the airline company’s claim. He randomly selects 315 passengers of the airline whose luggage was lost by the airline and found that 276 of those passengers were reunited with their luggage within 1 day. Are all of the conditions for this hypothesis test met, and if so, what are the null and alternative hypotheses for this hypothesis test?
Select the correct answer below:
Although the proportion follows a binomial model with two independent outcomes and the data are selected at random, the number of successes and the number of failures are not both greater than or equal to 5.
Although the proportion follows a binomial model with two independent outcomes and the number of successes and the number of failures are both greater than or equal to 5, the data are not selected at random.
- Although the data are selected at random and the number of successes and the number of failures are both greater than or equal to 5, the proportion does not follow a binomial model.
- All of the conditions to conduct the hypothesis test have been met. The null and alternative hypotheses are {H0:p=0.94Ha:p≠94.
- All of the conditions to conduct the hypothesis test have been met. The null and alternative hypotheses are {H0:p=0.94Ha:p>0.94.
- All of the conditions to conduct the hypothesis test have been met. The null and alternative hypotheses are {H0:p=0.94Ha:p<0.94.

Question
Kylie works for a large nursery and is investigating whether to use a new brand of seeds. The new brand of seeds advertises that 93% of the seeds germinate, which is higher than the germination rate of the seeds she is currently using. She will change over to this new brand unless the actual germination rate is less than what is advertised. Kylie conducts an experiment by randomly selecting 76 seeds of the new brand and plants them. She finds that 70 of those seeds germinated. What are the null and alternative hypotheses for this hypothesis test?
Select the correct answer below:
- {H0:p=0.93Ha:p>0.93
- {H0:p=0.93Ha:p<0.93
- {H0:p≠93Ha:p=0.93
- {H0:p=0.93Ha:p≠93
