KonradZuse

In 1965, about 44% of the U.S. adult population had never smoked cigarettes. A national health survey of 1205 U.S. adults (presumably selected randomly) during 2006 revealed that 615 had never smoked cigarettes. Reference: Ref 18-5 Suppose you wished to test whether there has been a change since 1965 in the proportion of U.S. adults that have never smoked cigarettes. Which of the following are the appropriate hypotheses? A. H0: p = 0.44, Ha: p > 0.44 B. H0: p = 0.51, Ha: p 0.51 C. H0: p = 0.44, Ha: p 0.44 D. H0: = 0.44, Ha: 0.44 The P-value of the test of hypotheses is A. greater than 0.10. B. between 0.05 and 0.10. C. between .01 and 0.05. D. below 0.01.

    I forgot to mention that there was a misprint when I pasted.. B is not equal, same with C, and then there is a p ^ for both of D's answers... I think it's B....

    D is out because you're not testing p^, you're testing p

    oh i see, you divided 615/1205 = 0.51, but that's p^ and NOT p

    you first need to find the test statistic

    use the formula z = (m - p)/(sqrt(pq/n)) where m is the test statistic and q = 1-p z = (m - p)/(sqrt(pq/n)) z = (0.51037 - 0.44)/(sqrt(0.44*0.56/1205)) z = 4.92108 So the test statistic is z = 4.92108

    now you need to find P(z > 4.92108) and double this result

    you can get away without even using a calculator though because notice how far z = 4.92108 is from z = 0

    well the p value is very very small, so it has to be less than 0.01
