"Pepsi" problem

A market research consultant hired by the Pepsi-Cola Co. is interested in determining the proportion of IUP students who favor Pepsi-Cola over Coke Classic. A random sample of 100 students shows that 40 students favor Pepsi over Coke. Use this information to construct a 95% confidence interval for the proportion of all students in this market who prefer Pepsi.

Interval Estimate of p

Draw a simple random sample of size n from a population with unknown proportion p of successes. An (approximate) confidence interval for p is:

MATH 214 (NOTES) ­ p. 16/6

Do you want to become a millionaire?

Let's say that one of you is invited to this popular show. As you probably know, you have to answer a series of multiple choice questions and there are four possible answers to each question. Perhaps you also have seen that if you don't know the answer to a question you could either "jump the question" or you could "ask the audience". Suppose that you run into a question for which you don't know the answer with certainty and you decide to "ask the audience". Let's say that you initially believe that the right answer is A. Then you ask the audience and only 2% of the audience shares your opinion. What would you do? Change your initial belief or reject it?

Sweetening colas

Diet colas use artificial sweeteners to avoid sugar. These sweeteners gradually lose their sweetness over time. Manufacturers therefore test new colas for loss of sweetness before marketing them. Trained tasters sip the cola along with drinks of standard sweetness and score the cola on a "sweetness score " of 1 to 10. The cola is then stored for a month at high temperature to imitate the effect of four months' storage at room temperature. Each taster scores the cola again after storage. This is a matched pairs experiment. Our data are the differences (score before storage minus score after storage) in the tasters' scores. The bigger these differences, the bigger the loss of sweetness.

MATH 214 (NOTES) ­ p. 18/6

Sweetening colas (cont.)

Suppose we know that for any cola, the sweetness loss scores vary from taster to taster according to a Normal distribution with standard deviation = 1. The mean µ for all tasters measures loss of sweetness, and is different for different colas. The following are the sweetness losses for a new cola, as measured by 10 trained tasters: 2.0 0.4 0.7 2.0 -0.4 2.2 -1.3 1.2 1.1 2.3. Are these data good evidence that the cola lost sweetness in storage?

MATH 214 (NOTES) ­ p. 19/6

Solution

µ= mean sweetness loss for the population of all tasters. 1. State hypotheses. H0 : µ = 0 vs Ha : µ > 0 x-µ0 ¯ 2. Test statistic. z = /n = 1.02-0 = 3.23 1/ 10

3. P-value. P (Z > z ) = P (Z > 3.23) = 0.0006 4. Conclusion. We would very rarely observe a sample sweetness loss as large as 1.02 if H0 were true. The small P-value provides strong evidence against H0 and in favor of the alternative Ha : µ > 0, i.e., it gives good evidence that the mean sweetness loss is not 0, but positive.

Executives' blood pressures

The National Center for Health Statistics reports that the systolic blood pressure for males 35 to 44 years of age has mean 128 and standard deviation 15. The medical director of a large company looks at the medical records of 72 executives in this age group and finds that the mean systolic blood pressure in this sample is x = 126.07. Is this evidence ¯ that the company's executives have a different mean blood pressure from the general population? Suppose we know that executives' blood pressures follow a Normal distribution with standard deviation = 15.

MATH 214 (NOTES) ­ p. 21/6

Solution

µ= mean of the executive population. 1. State hypotheses. H0 : µ = 128 vs Ha : µ = 128 x-µ0 ¯ 2. Test statistic. z = /n = 126.07-128 = -1.09 15/ 72 2(1 - 0.8621) = 0.2758

3. P-value. 2P (Z > |z |) = 2P (Z > | - 1.09|) = 2P (Z > 1.09) = 4. Conclusion. More than 27% of the time, a simple random sample of size 72 from the general male population would have a mean blood pressure at least as far from 128 as that of the executive sample. The observed x = 126.07 is ¯ therefore not good evidence that executives differ from other men.

Tests for a population mean

There are four steps in carrying out a significance test: 1. State the hypotheses. 2. Calculate the test statistic. 3. Find the P-value. 4. State your conclusion in the context of your specific setting. Once you have stated your hypotheses and identified the proper test, you or your calculator can do Steps 2 and 3 by following a recipe. Here is the recipe for the test we have used in our examples.

Z test for a population mean µ

In terms of a variable Z having the standard Normal distribution, the P-value for a test of H0 against Ha : µ > µ0 is P (Z > z ) Ha : µ < µ0 is P (Z < z ) Ha : µ = µ0 is 2P (Z > |z |)

Solution

a. Test statistic.

z =

= 1.4757

b. P-value. c. Conclusion. Since P-value = 0.0700 > = 0.01, we CAN'T reject H0 : µ = 25. We conclude that we don't have enough evidence to claim that µ > 25. (Some of us would say that we accept that µ = 25).

Tests from confidence intervals

CONFIDENCE INTERVALS AND TWO-SIDED TESTS. A level two-sided significance test rejects a hypothesis H0 : µ = µ0 exactly when the value µ0 falls outside a level 1 - confidence interval for µ.

MATH 214 (NOTES) ­ p. 31/6

Problem 11 (again)

The 95% confidence interval for µ in problem 11 is:

x ± z ( ) ¯ n 3 14.15 ± 1.96( ) 50 (13.3184, 14.9815)

The hypothesized value µ0 = 15 in problem 11 falls outside this confidence interval, so we reject H0 : µ = 15.

MATH 214 (NOTES) ­ p. 32/6

Problem 23 (page 363)

H0 : µ = 12 Ha : µ > 12

A sample of 25 provided a sample mean x = 14 and a ¯ sample standard deviation s = 4.32. a. Compute the value of the test statistic. b. Use the t distribution table to compute a range for the p-value. c. At = 0.05, what is your conclusion?

Solution

b. Degrees of freedom = n - 1 = 24. P-value = P (T > t ) = P (T > 2.31) Using t-table (on page 920), P-value is between 0.01 and 0.025. Exact P-value = 0.0147 (using a TI-83 and the function T-Test). c. Since P-value < = 0.05, we reject H0 .

Solution

a. t =

b. Degrees of freedom = n - 1 = 47. P-value = 2P (T > |t |) = 2P (T > | - 1.54|) = 2P (T > 1.54) Using t-table (on page 920), P-value is between 0.10 and 0.20. Exact P-value = 0.1303 (using a TI-83 and the function T-Test). c. Since P-value > = 0.05, we CAN'T reject H0 .

= -1.54

MATH 214 (NOTES) ­ p. 36/6

Another approach

Recall that = 0.05 and that we have a two-sided alternative (Ha : µ = 18) which means that we could solve this problem using a 95% confidence interval instead of the four-step procedure presented above.

s x ± t ( n ) ^ 4.5 17 ± 2.012( 48 )

(15.6931, 18.3068)

The hypothesized value µ0 = 18 in problem 18 falls INSIDE this confidence interval, so we CAN'T reject H0 : µ = 18.

Solution c

c. x = 46 and s = 5.0. ¯ P-value = P (T < t ) = P (T < 1.2) = 1 - P (T > 1.2) (T distributions are symmetric) Using t-table (on page 921), P-value is between 0.80 and 0.90. Exact P-value = 0.8809 (using a TI-83 and the function T-Test). Since P-value > = 0.01, we can't reject H0 .

Degrees of freedom = n - 1 = 99. Using t table (page 922), P-value is between 0.10 and 0.20 c. P-value > 0.05, we CAN'T reject H0 . Cannot conclude mean weekly benefit in Virginia is less than the national mean.

A study by Consumer Reports showed that 64% of supermarket shoppers believe supermarket brands to be as good as national name brands. To investigate whether this result applies to its own product, the manufacturer of a national name-brand ketchup asked a sample of shoppers whether they believed that supermarket ketchup was as good as the national brand ketchup.

Problem 38 (cont.)

a. Formulate the hypotheses that could be used to determine whether the percentage of supermarket shoppers who believe that the supermarket ketchup was as good as the national brand ketchup differed from 64%. b. If a sample of 100 shoppers showed 52 stating that the supermarket brand was as good as the national brand, what is the p-value? c. At = 0.05, what is your conclusion?

Problem 39 (page 369)

The National Center for Health Statistics released a report that stated 70% of adults do not exercise regularly. A researcher decided to conduct a study to see whether the claim made by the National Center for Health Statistics differed on a state-by-state basis. a. State the null and alternative hypotheses assuming the intent of the researcher is to identify states that differ from 70% reported by the National Center for Health Statistics. b. At = 0.05, what is the research conclusion for the following states: Wisconsin: 252 of 350 adults did not exercise regularly. California: 189 of 300 adults did not exercise regularly.
