From past data, the average cost of a wedding is known to be $7500, with a standard deviation of $975. To test if the true mean costs have changed, a random sample of 36 current weddings is taken. Their average is $7750. Is there evidence that currently, the true mean cost of wedding differs from the usual $7500? Perform the test at a = 0.05. 1. What are the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis for this test? A. Ho: a = 7750 Ha: a a7750 B. Ho: a a 7750 Ha: a < 7750 C. Ho: a = 7500 Ha: a aE 7500 * D. Ho: a > 7500 Ha: a aE 7500 E.
