### Statistics Question

Create an equation for which the appropriate test of the statistical hypothesis would require the use of a z-score. (For the population mean for the variable of interest, you may invent a hypothetical population mean for the sake of this equation.) o Clearly identify the independent and dependent variables you would analyze.
