# Minitab Notes for Activity 6

## Performing the Hypothesis Test (Questions 13-14)

- Go to Stat / Basic Statistics / 1 Proportion
- Click the Summarized Data radio button
- Enter the number of trials (n) and successes (x). Note, Minitab calls successes
"events".
- Click Options
- The confidence level is the complement of the signficance level.
- The test proportion is the value claimed in the null hypothesis
- Check to make sure the alternative hypothesis is set correctly (see
question 9)
- Always check the box to base the test and interval on the
normal distribution (note that Minitab may complain about a small sample
size, but we're not getting into non-parametric hypothesis testing at
this point, so we're going to force the normal approximation).
