Hypothesis Testing
  • Null Hypothesis: H0
     
  • Alternative Hypothesis: Ha
     
  • Confidence Intervals (CI)
     
  • Hypothesis Tests for Variances:

 

o   Tests for a Single Population Variances

Chi-Square test

 
H0: σ2 = c 

                      

 HA: σ2 ≠ c 
 

 
 

o   Tests for a two Population Variances:

 

F test


H0: σ12 – σ22 = 0
 
HA: σ12 – σ22 ≠ 0

 

  •  One Tailed Test:

Test if the value is greater than or less than K

H0; µ<=K vs. Ha: µ>K

  • Two Tailed Test:

Test if the value is different from K

H0; µ=0 vs. Ha: µ≠ 0
 

Sample Question

Question:

 

If standard deviation of a normal population is known to be 10 & the mean is hypothesized to be 8. Suppose a sample size of 100 is considered. What is the range of sample means in which hypothesis can be accepted at significance level of 0.05?
 

Ans:

SE = 10/√100 =1

 

z = (x-µ)/ SE    = (x-8)/1
 

At 95% -1.96

Therefore 6.04
