12)     The following is a general statement of a decision rule: If, when the null hypothesis is true, the probability of obtaining a value of the test statistic as____________ as or more _______ than that actually obtained is less than or equal to , the null hypothesis is____ _________.  Otherwise, the null hypothesis is ______________________ .

13)     The probability of obtaining a value of the test statistic as extreme as or more extreme than that actually obtained, given that the tested null hypothesis is true, is called ____________ for the ________________test.

14)     When one is testing H0: µ= µ0 on the basis of data from a sample of size n from a normally distributed population with a known variance of σ2 , the test statistic is ____________________________________________________.

15)     When one is testing H0: µ= µ0 on the basis of data from a sample of size n from a normally distributed population with a unknown variance, the test statistic is ___________________________________________________.

16)     The null hypothesis contains a statement of __________________________________.

17)     The statement  µ ≥  0 is an inappropriate statement for the ____________ hypothesis.

18)     The rejection region consists of those values of the ______________ that will cause rejection of the null hypothesis.

19)     The null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis are ____________ of each other.

20)     Given  ,  H0: µ= µ0, then Ha : ___________________________________ .

21)     Given H0: µ ≤ µ0, then Ha : ___________________________________ .

22)     Given H0: µ ≥ µ0, then Ha : ___________________________________ .

23)     A statement of what you wish to conclude goes in the ______________.

24)     A market analyst believes that more than 30% of the adults in a certain area regularly read a certain magazine.  The analyst wishes to conduct a hypothesis test to see whether this belief will be supported.  The appropriate statistical hypotheses are: __________________.

25)     Given: H0: µ ≥ 50;  Ha: µ < 50; α  = 0.05.  A simple random sample of size 64 is drawn from a non-normally distributed population.   = 45, s2 = 256.  The computed value of the test statistic is _________________, which is compared for significance with a value from the ____________________ distribution.

26)     Given: H0: µ= 100;  Ha: µ ≠ 100;   α = 0.03;  computed z = 2.25,  p = 0.0244.  The null hypothesis should reject because __________________________________________.
