# 4-1 Discussion: Applications of Hypothesis Tests

I need an explanation for this Mathematics question to help me study.

For your initial post, choose one of the following two prompts to respond to. Then in your two follow up posts, respond at least once in each option. Use the discussion topic as a place to ask questions, speculate about answers, and share insights. Be sure to embed and cite your references for any supporting images.

Write a hypothesis test problem using one of the two options below. For whichever option you choose, gather appropriate data and post your problem (without a solution) in the discussion topic. You may use the same data that you gathered in your Module Three Discussion Topic post. Allow time for your classmates to post their solutions, and then respond to your own post with a solution for others to check their work.

Option 1:

Think about a population mean that you may be interested in and propose a hypothesis test problem for this parameter. Gather appropriate data and post your problem, Later, respond to your own post with your own solution.

For example, you may believe that the population mean number of times that adults go out for dinner each week is less than 1.5. Your data could be that you spoke with 7 people and found that they went out 2, 0, 1, 5, 0, 2, and 3 times last week. You then would choose to test this hypothesis at the .05 (or another) significance level. Assume a random sample.

Option 2:

Think about a population proportion that you may be interested in and propose a hypothesis test problem for this parameter. Gather appropriate data and post your problem. Later, respond to your own post with your own solution.

For example, you may believe that the population proportion of adults in the US who own SUVs is 0.25. Your data could be that you surveyed people leaving work at the end of the day and found that 13 out of 50 owned an SUV. Test this hypothesis at the .05 (or another) significance level. Assume a random sample.

For your response to a classmate (two responses are required, one in each option), solve your classmate’s hypothesis test problem using a significance level not previously used for that specific classmate’s problem. Include the null and alternative hypothesis, alpha value, p-value, and a conclusion. Make sure that you use appropriate terminology, specify whether you are using the classical method or the p-value method, and fully explain your solution.

To complete this assignment, review the Discussion Rubric document.

Please do not include the solution to the option that is picked because my classmates have to solve the problem in the posting response. But I will need the answer and how how to solve it so I can tell them if it is correct.

I will be posted response needed for classmates as soon as they have posted their initial post. If needed I will be extending time to be able to get them done.

Please tell me which option you are doing.
