Given is the outcome s of S∼B(n,p) (n known, p fully unknown) and two numbers 0<a≤b<1. Required are probabilities α<(s), αa,b(s), and α>(s) of the hypotheses H<: p<a, Ha,b: a≤p≤b, and H>: p>b, such that their sum is equal to 1. The degenerate case a=b(=c) is of special interest. A method, optimal with respect to a class of functions, is derived under Neyman–Pearsonian restrictions, and applied to a case from medicine.
