Solution 7 CRE Step 1 : A survey conducted for 456 subjects in that 269 said “yes” to “honesty is a best policy”. To test the claim that the majority of the subjects say honesty is best policy. Majority means that greater than 0.5 Hypothesis H 0 p =0.5 H 1 p >0.5 Step 2 : number of subejects who said yes p = The total number of subjec456 = 0.5899 Test Statistic Z = pp ~N(0,1) p(1p0 n Let n = 456 Y = 269 np = 228 Therefore, Z = 0.0.02341= 3.840 The test statistic Z= 3.840 To find P-Value = P[z> 3.62] (Since it is a right tailed test ) = 1 - P[z< 3.62]) = 1 - 0.999 (From area under normal curve table) = 0.0001 The P-Value is 0.0001
