1. A simple random sample of 35 working mothers is obtained, and the average daily time they spend talking with their children is 45.9 minutes with a sample standard deviation of minutes. With a 0.01 significance level, we wish to test the claim that the daily mean time all working mothers spend talking with their children is more than 42 minutes. (a) Express the claim and its opposite in symbolic forms. (b) Identify the null hypothesis Ho and alternative hypothesis ( c) Verify the necessary requirements, and if met, compute the value of the appropriate test statistic. 11.2 H1.
(d) Make a decision about Ho, and state tho right conclusion about tho claim.
