# In planning a study of the birth weights of babies whose mothers did not see adoctor before delivery, a researcher states the hypotheses as$\begin{array}{c}{H}_{0}:\mu <1000\text{grams}\\ {H}_{a}:\mu =900\text{grams}\end{array}$

The problem is incorrect as the population mean value is $1000$ as per the null hypothesis and is less than $900$ as per the alternative hypothesis.

See the step by step solution

## Step 1: introduction

Given,

In planning a study of the birth weights of babies whose mothers did not see a

doctor before delivery, a researcher states the hypotheses as

$\begin{array}{r}{H}_{0}:\mu <1000\text{grams}\\ {H}_{a}:\mu =900\text{grams}\end{array}$

## Step 2: explanation

Calculating the hypothesis,

population mean value is $1000$ as per the null hypothesis

role="math" localid="1651657895247" $⇒{H}_{0}:\mu =1000$

population mean value is less than $900$ as per the alternative hypothesis

role="math" localid="1651657899211" $⇒{H}_{a}:\mu <900$

The problem is incorrect as the population mean value is $1000$ as per the null hypothesis and is less than $900$ as per the alternative hypothesis.
