A New York Times article titled For Runners Soft Ground Can Be Hard on the Body considered two perspectives on whether runners should stick to hard surfaces or soft surfaces following an injury One position supported running on soft surfaces to relieve joints that were in recovery from injury The second position supported running on hard surfaces since soft surfaces can be uneven which may make worse those injuries a soft surface was intended to help Suppose we are given sufficient funds to run an experiment to study this topic With no studies to support either position which of the following hypotheses would be appropriate O The first position is more sensible so this should be a one sided test In this case we should form the alternative hypothesis around the second position O The second position makes the more sense so this should be a one sided test In this case we should form the alternative hypothesis around the first position O Because we would be interested in any difference between running on hard and soft surfaces we should use a two sided hypothesis test O Because there is uncertainty we should postpone defining the hypotheses until after we collect data to guide the test Statistics

Several years ago 47 of parents who had children in grades K 12 were satisfied with the quality of education the students receive A recent poll asked 1 105 parents who have children in grades K 12 if they were satisfied with the quality of education the students receive Of the 1 105 surveyed 468 indicated that they were satisfied Construct a 95 confidence interval to assess whether this represents evidence that parents attitudes toward the quality of education have changed What are the null and alternative hypotheses Ho P versus H p Type integers or decimals rounded to two decimal places as needed Use technology to find the 95 confidence interval We are 95 confident the proportion of parents who had children in grades K 12 that were satisfied with the quality of education the students receive is between and Type integers or decimals rounded to two decimal places as needed What is the correct conclusion O A Since the interval does not contain the proportion stated in the null hypothesis there is insufficient evidence that parents attitudes toward the quality of education have changed OB Since the interval contains the proportion stated in the null hypothesis there is sufficient evidence that parents attitudes toward the quality of education have changed OC Since the interval contains the proportion stated in the null hypothesis there is insufficient evidence that parents attitudes toward the quality of education have changed O D Since the interval does not contain the proportion stated in the null hypothesis there is sufficient evidence that parents attitudes toward the quality of education have changed Statistics
