A coin will be tossed 15 times, and I have to decide whether it lands heads with chance 0.6 or 0.3. I’ll test the hypotheses

Null: p = 0.6
Alternative: p = 0.3

1.

First, I will use a simple decision rule: if fewer than half the tosses are heads, I will choose p=0.3; if more than half the tosses are heads, I will choose p=0.6.

The significance level of this test is ____________%.

2.

The power of the test in Problem 3 is ____________%.

3.

Suppose I want to create a new decision rule that says, “If the number of heads is less than H, then I will choose p=0.3; otherwise I will choose p=0.6.” Here H is an integer in the range 0 through 15. Is it possible for me to choose H so that the new test has a smaller significance level as well as a higher power than the test in Problem 1?

-Maybe; there is not enough information to decide.
-Yes.
-No

will be problem 1 is the write in the problem 2

2.

so The power of the test in Problem 1 is ____________%.

-Thank you all..All the best!!!

Just note this -I never post wrong answers- that second answer thread begin with 'Q3' by this username 'stat001' was not posted by me,I suspect some schizophrenic did that..

hahahahahahahahahah

Thank you stat001 I used it just for check up, and it really helps, bnecause its important for me, as for many others. But I would like to say, that the someone who gives wrong answers by your nickname - it's not HE or SHE - IT, IT and even not schizophrenic, because schisophrenic is a person, this one "example" - only IT...

• science -

i posted some wrong answers sorry for that i will not do that again plz show some compassion

i know who you are stat001 and why you are posting answers i know you completely there is no respect in getting certificates if you don't obey the honor codes
