Here, you use a one-sided, one-sample t-test.

It's one-sided because we're testing that the mean is greater than \$220,000, not just not equal to it, and it's one-sample because we're comparing the sample mean of one sample to a predetermined number. We use a t-test because we don't know the population standard deviation, but we can figure out the standard deviation of the sample.

Our null hypothesis is: The mean selling price in the Denver area is less than or equal to \$220,000.

Our alternative hypothesis is: The mean ...
