    Hypothesis Testing for the Mean (Large Samples)

    1. Use the method specified to perform the hypothesis test for the population
    mean . WeatherBug say that the mean daily high for December in a large Florida cit is F. WFLA weather suspects that this temperature is not accurate. A hypothesis test is performed the determine if the mean is actually lower than F. Assume that the population standard deviation of  = F. A sample of mean daily temperatures for December over the past 40 years gives F. At  = 0.01, does the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean temperature is lower than F.

    a. Use the critical value z0 method from the normal distribution.

    4. P-value or critical z0 or t0.
    5. Rejection Region:
