    Please answer the following question using the P value approach. Please describe your answer in detail. The answer details are important to my understanding the P value concept.

A psychologist suspected that recovering alcoholics in general had a higher mean state anxiety than the norm of 35. Do the sample data justify the suspicion? Complete the test with a 5% significant level. Use the p-value approach.
