5 Step Hypothesis Test

A recent article in Vitality magazine reported that the mean amount of leisure time per week for American men is 40.0 hours. You believe this figure is too large and decide to conduct your own test. In a random sample of 60 men, you find that the mean is 37.8 hours of leisure per week and that the standard deviation of the sampl

Hypothesis test for mean spending habits of $375

Families of size 4 spent a population mean of $360 on a visit to an amusement park, standard deviation of $50 in October 2000. Operators want to know whether families will spend more in 2001.
