  There is sufficient evidence to support the claim that the true proportion is   less than 2 in ten thousand.
  There is sufficient evidence to support the claim that the true proportion is   greater than 2 in ten thousand.
  There is not sufficient evidence to support the claim that the true   proportion is greater than 2 in ten thousand.
There is not sufficient   evidence to support the claim that the true proportion is less than 2 in ten   thousand.

 

  

6. Assume   that a hypothesis test of the given claim will be conducted. Identify the   type I or type II error for the test.
  A medical researcher claims that 6% of children suffer from a certain   disorder. Identify the type I error for the test. (Points : 5)
  Reject the claim that the percentage of children who suffer from the disorder   is different from 6% when that percentage really is different from 6%.
Reject the claim that   the percentage of children who suffer from the disorder is equal to 6% when   that percentage is actually 6%.
  Fail to reject the claim that the percentage of children who suffer from the   disorder is equal to 6% when that percentage is actually 6%.
  Fail to reject the claim that the percentage of children who suffer from the   disorder is equal to 6% when that percentage is actually different from 6%.

 

  

7. Assume   that a hypothesis test of the given claim will be conducted. Identify the   type I or type II error for the test.
  A cereal company claims that the mean weight of the cereal in its packets is   14 oz. Identify the type I error for the test. (Points : 5)
  Reject the claim that the mean weight is 14 oz when it is actually greater   than 14 oz.
  Fail to reject the claim that the mean weight is 14 oz when it is actually   different from 14 oz.
Reject the claim that   the mean weight is 14 oz when it is actually 14 oz.
  Reject the claim that the mean weight is different from 14 oz when it is   actually 14 oz.

 

  

8. Find   the P-value for the indicated hypothesis test.
