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 185
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 Pvalue 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what did you get for the first part

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1D is out because you're not testing p^, you're testing p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how are you getting 51% ? the given percentage is 44%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh i see, you divided 615/1205 = 0.51, but that's p^ and NOT p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you did eh? lol yeah C is correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you first need to find the test statistic

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1use the formula z = (m  p)/(sqrt(pq/n)) where m is the test statistic and q = 1p 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you need to find P(z > 4.92108) and double this result

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can get away without even using a calculator though because notice how far z = 4.92108 is from z = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what's the p value

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what did you get for the pvalue, which numeric value did you get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1calculate P(z > 4.92108), what do you get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1type normalcdf(4.92108, 10) into wolfram alpha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well like I said I wasn't sre if it was the 5 or tiny #'s.. So D then :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well the p value is very very small, so it has to be less than 0.01

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the p value is the 4th value down

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well you double it first, but still, it's very small
