# Question #2016528: Testing Hypothesis with the Z-statistic

Question: Prosecutors in sexual assault cases are often hampered by stereotypical notions that jurors have about rape. A researcher administered a rape myth scale to a group of subjects and then had them read a scenario depicting a rape case. In the case, a female is out at a bar and meets a guy. They have a nice conversation and at the end of the evening, she agrees to give this man her phone number. Unbeknownst to her, the man follows her home, breaks into her house and rapes her. Subjects were then asked to rate on a scale of 1 to 10, whether they agreed that a rape had occurred in this scenario. The higher the score, the more likely it was that the subject believed that the female in the scenario was raped. The researcher analyzed the scores of the rape myth scale and organized the subjects into two groups: high rape myth and low rape myth. Test the hypothesis that the high rape myth group will be less likely to agree that a rape occurred in the scenario compared to the low rape myth group. (10)
