# Hypothesis testing for mean

Not what you're looking for?

I am looking at this problem that suggests that people will follow a 24 hour cycle of sleeping and waking even if they are not exposed to the usual pattern of sunlight.

Their cycles at the end of the study were 25, 27, 25, 23, 24, 25, 26, and 25.

How would we use the steps of hypothesis testing to do this and sketch the distributions involved.
