Question

The business college computing center wants to determine the proportion of business students who have personal computers (PC's) at home. If the proportion is greater than 35%, then the lab will modify a proposed enlargement of its facilities. Suppose a hypothesis test is conducted and the test statistic is z= 2.6. Find the P-value for this test.

We plan to test whether the mean mRNA expression level differs between two strains of yeast, for each of 8,000 genes. We will measure the expression levels of each gene, in n samples of strain 1 and m samples of strain 2. We plan to compute a P-value for each gene, using an unpaired two-sample t-test for each gene (the particular type of test does not matter). a) What are the null hypotheses in these tests (in words)? [2] b) If, in fact, the two strains are identical, how many of these tests do we expect to produce a P-value exceeding 1/4? [2]
