H&O No. 9.69, 9.70 3.Two placement exams are available that students can take to determine which math class they should begin with in their freshman year.

Weekly sales are approximately normally distributed and the population standard deviations are equal. Their hypothesis test is: Did the TV ad campaign help or hurt sales?
