T.S. t = 0.7485 compared to t of 1.476, do not reject Ho, conclude that you do not have enough evidence to say weight is more than 15. Assume the distribution of weights is approximately normal. c) p-value = .5000 - .3133 = .1867, conclusion We do not have enough evidence to say the mean weight is more than 15 ounces. 2.
