You find that a random sample of 82 cereal servings has a mean sodium content of 232 milligrams with a standard deviation of 10 milligrams. At α = 0.01 , can you conclude that the mean sodium content per serving of cereal is more than 230 milligrams? (a) (DESIGN) State your Hypothesis Ho: μ ≤ 230 Ha: μ > 230 (d) (DESIGN) Determine decision rule (pvalue method) Reject Ho if p-value < α (.01) (e) (DATA) Conduct the test and circle your decision Z ≈ t = (232-230)/(10/sqrt(82)) = 1.81 p-value =P(Z>1.81) = 0.0351 > α (b) (DESIGN) State Significance Level of the test (c) (DESIGN) Determine the statistical model (test statistic)
