    Test Statistics




    A major swimming chain is considering opening a new store in an area that currently does not have any such stores. The chain will open if there is evidence that more than 5000 of the 20000 households in the area have swimming pools. It conducts a telephone poll of 300 randomly selected households in the area and finds that 96 have swimming pools. The value of the test statistic in this problem is approximately equal to

    Re: Test Statistics

    I have got the following.
    H0=.25
    H1>.25
    Alfa =.05

    z-value 2.8
    one-tailed p-value 0.0026

    95% confidence internvals
    upper Inf
    lower 0.2089

    Reject the null hypothesis

    Here, the value of test statistic is the p value which is 0.0026

    Is this solution correct?

    Re: Test Statistics


    Is it possible to have a p-value of 0.0026 when the lower confidence limit is 0.2089 and H0=.25?

    (I pasted in in Google: 96/300 -1.64*sqrt(0.32*0.68/300)
    = 0.27 What does it mean?

    And also; has there ever been an area where 5000 of the 20000 households in the area have swimming pools? Where one quarter of the households have a swimming pool?
