Statement of a problem № m41251


Consider the normal distribution with unknown mean μ and unknown variance σ2, and suppose that it is desired to test the following hypotheses: H0: μ ≤ μ0, H1: μ>μ0. Suppose that it is possible to observe only a single value of X from this distribution, but that an independent random sample of n observations Y1, . . . , Yn is available from the normal distribution with known mean 0 and the same variance σ2 as for X. Show how to carry out a test of the hypotheses H0 and H1 based on the t distribution with n degrees of freedom.
