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.

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

how are you getting 51% ? the given percentage is 44%

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

you did eh? lol yeah C is correct

Haha I glanced over them didn't realize that there were 2 of the same haha... I wanted the one that was not equal :D.

you first need to find the test statistic
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
use 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

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now you need to find P(z > 4.92108) and double this result

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you can get away without even using a calculator though because notice how far z = 4.92108 is from z = 0

so what's the p value

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what did you get for the pvalue, which numeric value did you get
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
calculate P(z > 4.92108), what do you get

How do we calculate that again without the table?

type normalcdf(4.92108, 10) into wolfram alpha

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
or you can use a TI calculator to do the same thing

so that means what

Well like I said I wasn't sre if it was the 5 or tiny #'s.. So D then :)

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
well the p value is very very small, so it has to be less than 0.01
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the p value is the 4th value down

well you double it first, but still, it's very small
