Based on the information given for each of the following studies, decide whether to reject the null hypothesis. For each, give (a) the Z-score cutoff (or cutoffs) on the comparison distribution at which the null hypothesis should be rejected, (b) the Z score on the comparison distribution for the sample score, and (c) your conclusion. Assume that all populations are normally distributed.

Population

Study μ σ Sample Score p Tails of Test

A 5 1 7 .05 1 (high predicted)

B 5 1 7 .05 2

C 5 1 7 .01 1 (high predicted)

D 5 1 7 .01 2

I would prefer not the answer given but please show me how to do it. I just do not understand.

What level of significance are you using? P ≤ .05? P ≤ .01?

Z = (score-mean)/SD

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportions related to the Z scores. For a one-tailed test, find Z with .05, but with a two-tailed test, look for Z with .025. If using P ≤ .01, use similar process.

i have the answers, but does not have the answers for the set of problems I was working on. That was one of my questions I was not completly sure of. I copied the problem word for word from the text. I did as much calculations as I knew how...it was then trying to figure out how to get the probability i think. This chapter threw me for a loop.
