very large percentage of the data values are greater than 0 which indicates that most but not all runners do slow down at the end of the race a The histogram is also positively skewed which means that some runners slow down a lot compared to the others a A typical value for this data would be in the neighborhood of 200 seconds The proportion of the runners who ran the last 5 km faster than they did the first 5 km is very small about 1 or so AUG 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 Ch2 Pr9 a We want to choose all of the 5 cordless and 5 out of 10 others

who possess a specified property thus each object either possesses a desired property 8 or it doesn t F 0 Consider a simple random sample X1 7Xn If the sample size n is small relative to the population size the number of successes in the sample X has an approximately binomial distribution If n itself is also large both X and the sample proportion 13 Xn are approximately normally distributed a Largesample tests concerning p are a special case of the more general largesample procedures for an arbitrary parameter 6 We considered such a largesample test before for the mean u of an arbitrary distribution Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 0 Some basic properties of are 1 Estimator is unbiased E13 p 2 Second it is approximately

a null hypothesis H0 p p0 vs an alternative Ha p gt 1 0 Under the null hypothesis we have E p0 and 0p xp01 p0n therefore for large n the test statistic i3 p0 p01 p0n has approximately standard normal distribution a The rejection region is clearly z 2 Za for a test of approximately level 05 Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 o The lowertailed test has a rejection region z g za 0 The twotailed test has a rejection region 2 Zag The last expression is a concise way of saying that z 2 Z042 or 2 g za2 0 These tests are applicable whenever the normal approximation of the binomial distribution is reasonable npo 2 10 n1 p0 gt 10 Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 Example 0 Consider example 811 from Devore The null hypothesis here is thatp 03 The alternative would be p gt 30 a Note that the rule of thumb is satisfied npo 41153 gt 10 abd n1 p0 41157 gt 10 0 Thus we use the largesample test with Z

Levine Fall 2006 o The formulas for the type II error are very similar to what we saw before for the mean test We only give the uppertailed test formula Ha p gt p0 I p0pZa P01 P0n vu pvn and the lowertailed test formula Ha p lt p0 290 25 in po1 pon 1 Q pu pvn a Sample size formulas can also be easily derived In the twotailed case the formula is approximate as before Aug 2006 Statistics 511

Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 Small Sample tests 0 These are test procedures for proportions when the sample size n is small They are based directly on the binomial distribution rather than the normal approximation 0 Consider the alternative hypothesis Ha p gt p0 and let X be yet again the number of successes in the sample size n For a test level 05 we

to find an exact value of C in this case the usual way out is to use the largest rejection region of the form 6 C 1 n satisfying the bound on the Type I error a To compute the Type II error for an
