# Applications of hypothesis tests- due 6/2/19

DUE TOMORROW 6/2/19 BY 13:00!

Choose one of the following two prompts to respond to. Write a hypothesis test problem using one of the two options below. For whichever option you choose, gather appropriate data and post your problem.

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.
