Since the breaking strength of a fiber is required to be at least 150 psi, we consider two hypotheses: • H : the breaking strength is greater or equal to 150: 150 μ ≥ (will also accept μ =150). • H 1 : the breaking strength is smaller than 150: 150 μ < . We would accept the fiber only if the null hypothesis H fails to be rejected (i.e., is accepted) or H 1 could be rejected. b).
