# Find the value of the standard

Find the value of the standard? score, z, and determine whether the alternative hypothesis is supported at a 0.05 significance level.
Upper H Subscript a?: munot equals37.5?, nequals400?, x overbarequals37.3?, sigmaequals0.7
The value of the standard score is nothing.? (Round to the nearest hundredth as? needed.)
A. The alternative hypothesis is supported.
B. The alternative hypothesis is not supported.
The critical values for a two-tailed z-test with alpha = 0.05 are z = -1.96 and z = +1.96. Since the z-score of -5.714 is not between the two critical values, the decision would be to reject the null hypothesis, which means that the alternative hypothesis is supported.

Assume that male births and female births are equally likely. The following table shows the probabilities of various numbers of male babies in a random sample of 100 births. A random sample of 100 births has 33 male babies. Is this result significant at the 0.01 level? What is the P-value for this result?

Without using the terms? “null hypothesis” and? “alternative hypothesis”, identify the type I error and identify the type II error.
Upper H 0?: The lottery is fair.
Upper H Subscript a?: The lottery is biased.
A.
Type I error and Type II? error: Reject the claim that the lottery is fair when the lottery is fair.
B.
Type I? error:
Reject the claim that the lottery is fair when the lottery is fair.
Type II? error:
Fail to reject the claim that the lottery is fair when the lottery is biased.
C.
Type I? error:
Fail to reject the claim that the lottery is fair when the lottery is biased.
Type II? error: reject the claim that the lottery is fair when the lottery is fair
One experiment conducted a clinical trial of a method for gender selection. According to this? experiment, 345 babies had been born to parents using the new method to increase the probability of conceiving a? girl, and 311 of those babies were girls. Discuss whether these results appear to be statistically significant.Do these results appear to be statistically? significant?A. Yes
B. No

A scatterplot with horizontal axis from 0.0 to 1.6 in increments of 0.4 and vertical axis labeled from 0.0 to 1.6 in increments of 0.4 contains 10 plotted points. 9 of the points are plotted in three columns of three points each. The three columns have horizontal coordinates 0.8, 1.0, and 1.2, respectively. The vertical coordinates of the three points in each column are 0.4, 0.6, and 0.8. The remaining point is plotted far above and to the left of the rest, at (0.2, 1.4).
a. The outlier is the point

State the null and the alternative hypotheses. Choose the correct answer below.
A.
The alternative? hypothesis: Improvement is independent of whether the participant was given the drug or a placebo.
The null? hypothesis: Improvement and treatment? (drug or? placebo) are somehow related.
B.
The null? hypothesis: Improvement is independent of whether the participant was given the drug or a placebo.
The alternative? hypothesis: Improvement and treatment? (drug or? placebo) are somehow related.
