# Hypothesis Testing of Single Mean and Single Proportion: Summary of Formulas

Note: You are viewing an old version of this document. The latest version is available here.

 If HoHo has: equal (=)(=) greater than or equal to (≥)(≥) less than or equal to (≤)(≤) then HaHa has: not equal (≠)(≠) or greater than (>)(>) or less than (<)(<) less than (<)(<) greater than (>)(>)

If α α p-value, then do not reject H o H o.

If α > α> p-value, then reject H o H o .

αα is preconceived. Its value is set before the hypothesis test starts. The p-value is calculated from the data.

αα = probability of a Type I error = P(Type I error) = probability of rejecting the null hypothesis when the null hypothesis is true.

ββ = probability of a Type II error = P(Type II error) = probability of rejecting the null hypothesis when the null hypothesis is true.

If there is no given preconceived αα, then use α=0.05α=0.05.

## Types of Hypothesis Tests

• Single population mean, known population variance (or standard deviation): Normal test.
• Single population mean, unknown population variance (or standard deviation): Student-t test.
• Single population proportion: Normal test.

#### Definition of a lens

##### Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

##### What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

##### Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

##### What are tags?

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
