A manufacturer of alkaline batteries expects that only 5 % of his products are defective. A random sample of 300 batteries contained 10 defectives. Can we conclude the proportion of defectives in the entire lot is less than 0·5 at 5 % level of significance?

Explanation

A random sample of 300 batteries contained 10 defectives. A manufacturer of alkaline batteries expects that only 5 % of his products are defective that is testing of hypothesis is

H 0: P = 0.05 against H 1: P < 0.05

Here n = 300, numbers of defectives is 10 and

The estimated value of P is

The null hypothesis can be tested b

Explanation

Wald-Wolfowitz run test uses the data of two random samples, sample 1 is X variables of size n = 11 and sample 2 is Y variables of size m = 10 from two population F X (x) and F Y (y) respectively.

The hypothesis under the test is that the null hypothesis is the two population are identical otherwise the alternative is the population is differ.
