    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Consider the following hypothesis test:

    Ho (null hypothesis): µ = 15
    Ha (alternative hypothesis): µ ≠ 15

    A sample of 25 gives a sample mean of 14.2 and sample standard deviation of 5. Answer the following questions regarding the hypothesis test.

    a) At α = 0.05, what is the rejection rule?
    b) Compute the value of the test statistic
    c) What is the p-value?
    d) What is your conclusion?
