# Testing of Hypothesis for Variance with P-Value Method

A random sample of 51 observations was selected from a normally distributed population. The sample mean was = 88.6, and the sample variance was s2 = 38.2. Does the sample show sufficient reason to conclude that the population standard deviation is not equal to 8 at the 0.05 level of significance? Use the p-value method.
