© 1999 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 8 - 2 A hypothesis is an assumption about the population parameter. A parameter is a Population mean or proportion The parameter must be identified before analysis. I assume the mean GPA of this class is 3.5! © 1984-1994 T/Maker Co. What is a Hypothesis?

3
© 1999 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 8 - 3 States the Assumption (numerical) to be tested e.g. The average # TV sets in US homes is at least 3 (H 0 : 3) Begin with the assumption that the null hypothesis is TRUE. (Similar to the notion of innocent until proven guilty) The Null Hypothesis, H 0 Refers to the Status Quo Always contains the ‘ = ‘ sign The Null Hypothesis may or may not be rejected.

4
© 1999 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 8 - 4 Is the opposite of the null hypothesis e.g. The average # TV sets in US homes is less than 3 (H 1 : < 3) Challenges the Status Quo Never contains the ‘=‘ sign The Alternative Hypothesis may or may not be accepted The Alternative Hypothesis, H 1

5
© 1999 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 8 - 5 Steps: State the Null Hypothesis (H 0 : 3) State its opposite, the Alternative Hypothesis (H 1 : < 3) Hypotheses are mutually exclusive & exhaustive Sometimes it is easier to form the alternative hypothesis first. Identify the Problem

© 1999 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 8 - 6 Population Assume the population mean age is 50. (Null Hypothesis) REJECT The Sample Mean Is 20 Sample Null Hypothesis Hypothesis Testing Process No, not likely!

7
© 1999 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 8 - 7 Sample Mean = 50 Sampling Distribution It is unlikely that we would get a sample mean of this value...... if in fact this were the population mean.... Therefore, we reject the null hypothesis that = 50. 20 H0H0 Reason for Rejecting H 0

Chap. 8 - 8 Defines Unlikely Values of Sample Statistic if Null Hypothesis Is True Called Rejection Region of Sampling Distribution Designated (alpha) Typical values are 0.01, 0.05, 0.10 Selected by the Researcher at the Start Provides the Critical Value(s) of the Test Level of Significance,

Chap. 8 - 26 Connection to Confidence Intervals For X = 372.5oz, = 15 and n = 25, The 95% Confidence Interval is: 372.5 - (1.96) 15/ 25 to 372.5 + (1.96) 15/ 25 or 366.62 378.38 If this interval contains the Hypothesized mean (368), we do not reject the null hypothesis. It does. Do not reject. _
