Homework Help: Statistics confidence coefficient calculation

  1. Nov 30, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Suppose you receive calls that follow a Poisson process model Y(t).
    There are two hypotheses, Hypothesis1: E[Y(t)] = λ1t = 71t and Hypothesis 2: E[Y(t)] = λ2t = 74t. Let t = 30 the number of calls be 2175.

    Find and compute a significance level α such that both Hypothesis1 and Hypothesis2 are accepted.

    2. Relevant equations

    α = P( (u - E[Y] /stdY > c / stdY)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    hypothesis 1: u= 71 std = sqrt(71)

    hypothesis 2: u = 74 std = sqrt(74)

    Am I suppose to take the minimum value of the p values of each?
