# BUS 233 ## Single-sample z-test for the mean [7.4.30t]

Here is a common problem from intro stats: [7.4.30t] A random sample of 100 observations from a population with a standard deviation of 44 yielded a sample mean of 108. Test the null hypothesis that μ = 100 against the alternative that μ > 100 at an alpha of 0.05. Here because the alternative contains …

## One-sample Sigma Known z-test for the Mean

Joel, I have not checked all your calculations, but the process you used looks good. I note that this is a problem where you are given a lot of raw data. Which technology did you use? I ask because problems where you have to manually enter a lot of raw data often lead to mistakes …

## How to State the Conclusion about a Hypothesis Test

After you have completed the statistical analysis and decided to reject or fail to reject the Null hypothesis, you need to state your conclusion about the claim. To get the correct wording, you need to recall which hypothesis was the claim. If the claim was the null, then your conclusion is about whether there was …

## Simple One-sample z-test for the Mean when Sigma is Known

Here is a way to do a simple one-sample z test when we know the population standard deviation sigma. If this was a left tail test as indicated by an < in the alternative hypothesis, the standardized test statistic (z) of -1.753 falls in the rejection region below the z-critical of -1.645 and that would …

## Empirical Rule Cheatsheet

Empirical Rule percentiles are the percentage of data below (to the left of) an x value. Use this Quick and Easy calculator to find percentiles when you are given the population mean and standard deviation and x values. In most intro stats classes, you will only be given x values whose z-scores are are integers. …
