Example Let X (in millimeters) equal the growth in 15 days of a tumor induced in a mouse. Assume that the distribution of X is N ( μ,σ 2 ). We shall test the null hypothesis H 0 : μ = 4 . 0 millimeters against the two-sided alternative hypothesis H 1 : μ 6 = 4 . 0 Let the sample size n = 9 and the sample mean and standard de- viation are 4.3 and 1.2 respectively. Test the null hypothesis with a significance level of α = 0 . 1 Compute the p -value. 67
