Hypothesis Testing:Oh Baby! Gifts & Oxnard accounting majors

The Web-based company Oh Baby! Gifts have a goal of processing 95 percent of its orders on the same day they are received. If 365 out of the next 375 orders are processed on the same day, would this prove that they are exceeding their goal, using α = .01? Explain your decision.


At Oxnard University, a sample of 18 senior accounting majors showed a mean cumulative GPA of 3.35 with a standard deviation of 0.25. At α = .05 in a two-tailed test, does this differ significantly from 3.25 (the mean GPA for all business school seniors at the university)? Explain.
