3. Develop a null hypothesis and an alternative hypothesis. Conduct a hypothesis test to determine whether the mean duration of unemployment in Philadelphia is greater than the national mean duration of 14.6 weeks. Use a .01 level of significance. What does the outcome mean?

4. Is there a relationship between the age of an unemployed individual and the number of weeks of unemployment? Why or why not?
