Null and Alternative Hypothisis

timer Asked: Jul 15th, 2014

Question description

Share the null and alternative hypotheses for a decision that is relevant to your life. This can be a personal item or something at work. Be sure that it is mathematical in nature.  Additionally, identify the Type I and Type II Errors that could occur with your decision‐making process. Be sure to quantify your hypotheses as much as possible and identify your variables. For example, suppose a newspaper article stated that the average weight of cats is 5 lbs. Suppose you think that the average weight of cats is more than 5 lbs. Then the hypotheses are:

H0: μ < 5
Ha:  μ >5
Here  μ is the population average weight of cats. This would be an example of an Upper Tail test.
