    Consider the following hypotheses test.

    Ho: m ³ 80
    Ha: m < 80

    A sample of 121 provided a sample mean of 77.3. The population standard deviation is known to be 16.5.

    a. Compute the value of the test statistic.
    b. Determine the p-value; and at 93.7% confidence, test the above hypotheses.
    c. Using the critical value approach at 93.7% confidence, test the hypotheses.

    a. Compute the value of the test statistic.

    Given xbar=77.3, sigma=16.5 and n=121. Then the value of the test statistic is

    z=(xbar-80)/sigma*sqrt(n)
    ...
