1. A team of researchers has developed a new weight loss supplement. They want to know if patients who use the new supplement for four weeks lose any weight. The supplement has some minor side effects including mild headaches and achiness. If the researchers obtain evidence of weight loss they will proceed to produce the supplement commercially and sell it for a large profit. If they do not obtain evidence of weight loss they will end the project. [70 points]

C. What does a Type II error mean in this situation? What are the consequences of making a Type II error here?

In a survey of 80 students during the Fall 2018 semester, 29 had utilized their services. She used bootstrapping methods to construct a 95% confidence interval for the population proportion of [0.263, 0.475]. Use this information to address the following questions. [30 points]

A. Supposed the coordinator decides that she wanted to conduct a hypothesis test instead. She wants to know if the proportion who utilize Penn State Learning’s online tutoring services is different from 0.25. What would be the appropriate null and alternative hypotheses?

B. Based on the 95% bootstrap confidence interval, would you expect the coordinator to reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis from part A at the 0.05 alpha level? Do NOT conduct the hypothesis test; use the confidence interval given in the question. Explain your reasoning.
