#### Solution Preview

a. Conduct a test of hypothesis to determine whether the mean salary of the teams was different from $50.0 million and use

a .05 significance level.

Ho: M = 50

Ha: M =/= 50

This is a two tailed test, and please refer to EXCEL for calculation.

The mean is M = SUM(salary)/30 = 56.67

The population standard deviation is SD = SQRT(SUM(Salary-M)^2/n) = ...

#### Solution Summary

This solution goes through each of the steps of hypothesis testing to determine mean salary of the teams and mean attendance.
