# Hypothesis test for a population mean

Monitoring the ecological health of the Everglades-the bottom temperatures are recorded at the Garfield Bight station and the mean of 19.7 degrees C is obtained for 62 temperatures on 62 different days. Assuming sigma=1.6 degrees C, test claim that the pop mean is less than 20.0 degrees C. Use a 0.05 significance level to calculate test statistic.

Monitoring the ecological health of the Everglades-the bottom temperatures are recorded @ the Garfield Bight station and the mean of 19.7 degrees C is obtained for 62 temperatures on 62 different days. Assuming o=1.6 degrees C, test claim that the pop mean is less than 20.0 degrees C. Use a 0.05 significance level to calculate test statistic.

Solution:

This is a one tailed test of hypothesis using the Z or standard normal distribution as the reference distribution for the test ...
