7. [P = 0.0195] 8. In a certain area, regulations require that the chlorine level in wastewater discharges be less than 100 μ g/L. In a sample of 85 wastewater specimens, the mean chlorine concentration was 98 μ g/L and the standard deviation was 20 μ g/L. Let μ represent the mean chlorine level. A test is made of versus . a) Find the P- value. [P=0.1788] b) Do you believe it is plausible that the mean chlorine concentration is greater than or equal to 100 μ g/L, or are you convinced that it is less? Explain your reasoning. 9. Incinerators can be a source of hazardous emissions into the atmosphere. Stack gas samples were collected from a sample of 50 incinerators in a major city. Of the 50 samples, only 18 met environmental standard for the concentration of a hazardous
