Call the significance level `(1-alpha)`%
Let ` z_(1-alpha)` be the `(1-alpha)`th percentile of the standard Normal distribution
a) The critical region to detect `mu>0` where `Z` ~ N`(mu,1)` is given by
`z: z in [z_(1-alpha),oo)`
Convert the value of `x`to a z-score` `:
Test statistic = `(x-82)/0.1`
The critical regi` `on for `x` is given by
`x: (x-82)/0.1 in [z_(1-alpha),oo)`
ie `x: x in [0.1z_(1-alpha) + 82,oo)`
b) The critical region to detect `mu != 0` where `Z` ~ N`(mu,1)`
is given by
`z: |z| in [z_(1-alpha/2),oo)`
Convert the value of `x` to a z-score:
Test statistic = `(x-44)/0.01`
The critical region for `x` is given by
`x: |(x-44)/0.01| in [z_(1-alpha/2),oo)`
ie `x: x in [0.01z_(1-alpha/2) + 44,oo)` or `x: x in [44 - 0.01z_(1-alpha/2),-oo)`
c) The critical region to detect `mu<0` where `Z` ~ N`(mu,1)`
is given by
`z: z in [-z_(1-alpha),-oo)`
Convert the value of `x` to a z-score:
Test statistic = ` (x-17)/0.05`
The critical region for `x`is given by
`x: (x-17)/0.05 in [-z_(1-alpha),-oo)`
ie `x: x in [17 - 0.05z_(1-alpha),-oo)`
a) test statistic (x-82)/0.1
critical region [z(1-alpha),infinity)
b) test statistic (x-44)/0.01
critical region [z(1-alpha/2),infinity) or [-z(1-alpha/2),-infinity)
c) test statistic (x-17)/0.05
critical region [-z(1-alpha),-infinity)
