# Null Hypothesis Sample Deviation Effects

2)Your company has recently changed suppliers of a certain raw material in an effort to reduce the number of defective units being produced at your plant. During the past year, the sampling has indicated a daily mean of 21.2 defective units. After testing the new suppliers raw materials for 30 days, it was found that the mean during the trial period was 19.8 with a sample deviation of 5. Testing at the 5% level of significance, has the change in suppliers had the desired effect?
