A normal tomato will gain an average of 2 ounces per week during the growing season. A sample of 100 tomatoes is given a special hormone to increase their growth. The average weight gain of tomatoes in the sample was 3 ounces with a standard deviation of 1 ounce. Conduct a hypothesis test to determine if the hormone increased the tomatoes weight gain (Hint:

Regression, Hypotheses Testing and Null and Alternate Hypotheses are investigated.
