I need some help reviewing the sample problem below:
Sprinkler Systems. A manufacturer of sprinkler systems designed for fire protection claims that the average activating temperature is at least 135 degrees F. To test this claim, you randomly select a sample of 32 systems and find the mean activation temperature between 133 degrees F with a standard deviation of 3.3 degrees F. At a level of significance of 0.10, do you have enough evidence to reject the manufacturers claim?

You need to do the following:
â€¢ Post the statement of this problem.
â€¢ Discuss the importance of obtaining a random sample.
â€¢ Identify the claim and state Ho and Ha.
â€¢ State the level of significance.
â€¢ Discuss the possibility of a Type I or Type II error.

On a separate page you need to do the following:
â€¢ Copy and paste the statement of the problem and your Ho and Ha from the previous page.
â€¢ Find the test statistic.
â€¢ Find the p-value.
â€¢ Decide whether to reject the null hypothesis.
â€¢ Interpret the decision in the context of the original claim.

#### Solution Preview

Solution:
â€¢ Post the statement of this problem.
The average activating temperature is at least 135 degrees F.
â€¢ Discuss the importance of obtaining a random sample.
It is hard to get the whole population.
â€¢ Identify the claim and state Ho and Ha.
Ho: The average activating temperature is at least ...

#### Solution Summary

This solution consists of details of using one sample t-test to test the claim that the average activating temperature is at least 135 degrees F.
