Should the null hypothesis of a weight gain of less than 5 pounds for the population be rejected? That depends on how conservative you want to be. If you had decided beforehand on a significance level of p < 0.05, the null hypothesis could not be rejected. In national use, a vocabulary test is known to have a mean score of 68 and a standard deviation of 13. A class of 19 students takes the test and has a mean score of 65. Is the class typical of others who have taken the test? Assume a significance level of p < 0.05. There are two possible ways that the class may differ from the population. Its scores may be lower than, or higher than, the population of all students taking the test; therefore, this problem requires a...
