How tall are college hockey players? The average height has been 68.3 inches. A random sample of 14 hockey players gave a mean height of 69.1 inches. We may assume that x has a normal distribution with mu = 0.9 inch. Does this indicate that the population mean height is different from 68.3 inches? Use 5% level of significan
The hypothesis is that the Southerners are less educated than the population at large. Now keep in mind that because this is a one tailed test, you can interchange the null and the alternate hypothesis. Also, null is usually given the benefit of the doubt. Thus the '=' sign goes with the null. In this case because we have to pro
