Hypothesis Testing Procedure

An automotive part must be machined to close tolerances to be acceptable to customers. Production specifications call for a maximum variance in the lengths of the parts of .0004. Suppose the sample variance for 3 parts turns out to be S2 = .0005. Use a=.05 to test whether the population variance specification is being violated.
