# Hypothesis Testing

### Hypothesis Testing and Power Functions

5.5.8 Let us say the life of a tire in miles, say X, is normally distributed with mean 0 and standard deviation 5000. Past experience indicates that 0=30,000. The manufacturer claims that the tires made by a new process have mean 0 >30,000. It is possible that 0=35,000. check his claim by testing H0: 0=30,000 against H1: 0 >
