Basic concepts: Measures of relative standing - z-score, quartiles, percentiles, Introduction to normal distribution,

- 1.Using sample data, it is possible to find a Z-score relating to the claim (the test-statistic).

**Finding the Critical Value**

With a significance level of $\alpha =0.075$ what is the resulting critical value of:a)A right-tailed test?b)A left-tailed test?c)A two-tailed test? - 3.Find the critical value from the following confidence levels for a right-tailed test:a)90% confidenceb)95% confidencec)99% confidence
- 4.
**Rejecting or Failing to Reject the Null Hypothesis**

The following Null Hypothesis and Alternative Hypothesis have been derived from a statement:

$H_0$: $p \leq 0.5$

$H_1$: $p$ > $0.5$

Using a significance level of $0.10$ (which corresponds to a critical value of $Z_\alpha=1.28$), and a Z-score of $Z=1.40$ relating to our Null Hypothesis;

Can we reject the Null Hypothesis? - 5.The following Null Hypothesis and Alternative Hypothesis have been derived from a statement:

$H_0$: $\mu \geq 175 lbs$

$H_1$: $\mu$ < $175 lbs$

Using a 95% confidence level and a Z-score of Z=-1.50 relating to our Null Hypothesis;

Can we reject the Null Hypothesis? - 6.The following claim is made.

“70% of Canadians own a pet”.

Given that the test-statistic is Z=2.75, with a confidence level of 90% what can be said about the proportions of pet owners in Canada?
