CHAPTER 6
17. (a) Yes. The value 3.5 is greater than the upper confidence bound of 3.45. Quantities greater than the upper
confidence bound will have P-values less than 0.05. Therefore P &lt; 0.05.
(b) No, we would need to know the 99% upper confidence bound to determine whether P &lt; 0.01.
18. (a) No, we would need to know the 99% lower confidence bound in order to determine whether P &lt; 0.01.
(b) Yes, since 50 is less than the 98% lower confidence bound, we know that P &lt; 0.02. Therefore P &lt; 0.05.
19.
Yes, we can compute
the P-value exactly.
√
√ Since the 95% upper confidence bound is 3.45, we know that
3.40 + 1.645s/ n = 3.45. Therefore s/ n = 0.0304. The z-score is (3.40 − 3.50)/0.0304 = −3.29. The
P-value is 0.0005, which is less than 0.01.
20.
No, the confidence bound itself tells us only that P &lt; 0.02. To determine the P-value more precisely,
we would
√
need to know the standard deviation of the sample mean. This is approximately equal to s/ n where s is the
sample standard deviation and n is the sample size. We know that s = 5, but we do not know n.

X = 25, n = 300, pb = 25/300 = 0.083333.
The null and alternate hypotheses are H0 : p ≤ 0.05 versus H1 : p &gt; 0.05.
p
z = (0.083333 − 0.5)/ 0.05(1 − 0.05)/300 = 2.65.
Since the alternate hypothesis is of the form p &gt; p0 , the P-value is the area to the right of z = 2.65,
so P = 0.0040. The claim is rejected.
2.
3.
No. n = 100 and p0 = 0.05, so np0 = 5, which is less than 10.

(b) H0 : p ≥ 0.4
(c) Yes, P = 0.001, which is less than 0.02.
(d) The sample proportion is 0.304167. Therefore the P-value for the null hypothesis p ≥ 0.45 will be less than
the P-value for the null hypothesis p ≥ 0.40, which is 0.001. It follows that the null hypothesis p ≥ 0.45 can
be rejected at the 2% level.

size 1.
2. (a) Reject the assumptions: the value 221.03 is an outlier.

z = (73.8 − 76.1 − 0)/ 5.22 /60 + 4.12/60 = −2.69. Since the alternate hypothesis is of the form &micro;X − &micro;Y &lt; ∆,
the P-value is the area to the left of z = −2.69.

The z-score is computed as in part (a): z = 0.80.
Since the alternate hypothesis is of the form &micro;X − &micro;Y 6= ∆, the P-value is the sum of the areas to the right of
