## Elementary Statistics (12th Edition)

a) $0.80$ b) We must consider the normal chance that the population is skewed.
a) Firs we find the value of $\hat{p}$. For this, we first must find the standard deviation: $σ=\sqrt{(0.5)(0.5)64}=0.0625.$ Hence: $\hat{p}=zσ+μ=0.6028.$ We now need to find the value of z so that we can find the power of the test: $z=\frac{\hat{p}−p}{\sqrt{\frac{-p^2+p}{n}}}$ Plugging in the values and then using the table of z-scores, we find that the sample proportion is: $1−0.1977\approx0.80$ b) The reason we consider the shaded area is that we only care about the area of the new curve that is not included in the typical population curve. We must consider the fact that there may be an abnormally high number of girls in the normal population of a study.
