© 2001 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 9-3 Example: Two-Tail Test Q. Does an average box of cereal contain 368 grams of cereal? A random sample of 25 boxes showed = 372.5. The company has specified to be 15 grams and the distribution to be normal. Test at the 0.05 level. 368 gm.

8
© 2001 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 9-8 Critical Values Approach to Testing Convert Sample Statistic (e.g. ) to Test Statistic (e.g. Z, t or F –statistic) Obtain Critical Value(s) for a Specified from a Table or Computer If the test statistic falls in the critical region, reject H 0 Otherwise do not reject H 0

9
© 2001 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 9-9 p-Value Approach to Testing Convert Sample Statistic (e.g. ) to Test Statistic (e.g. Z, t or F –statistic) Obtain the p-value from a table or computer p-value: Probability of obtaining a test statistic more extreme ( or ) than the observed sample value given H 0 is true Called observed level of significance Largest value of that an H 0 will not be rejected Compare the p-value with If p-value, do not reject H 0 If p-value, reject H 0
