Q7. Law enforcement officers in a city have claimed that over 40% of all robberies committed by those who have a history of drug abuse and/or alcohol abuse. The Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency recently reported that in a random sample of 96 robberies, 40 were found to be committed by people who had drugs and/or alcohol abuse problems. Does this data substantiate the law enforcement officers’ claim at a 5% level of significance (i.e., alpha=0.05)? [8 points]
since the 96 robberies is more than 30, I would use the z test. the z test requires a standard deviation. am i looking at this wrong?
i have no idea what u said, but u did mention the proportion testing, so i pulled out the text and did it their way. can you check if I did it right?
H0: p < or = 0.40
H1: p > 0.40 (claim)
alpha = 0.05
critical value = 1.65
p-hat = 40/96 = 0.416
p = 0.40
q = 0.60
z = (p-hat - p)/sqr(pq/n) = (0.416 - 0.4)/sqr(0.40*0.60/96) = 0.33
0.33 < 1.65
there is not enough evidence to support the claim
I'm sure I did it right, I'm just not too sure about the last part with the claiming and evidence part
