environmentalists believe this figure is too high and conducted a survey of 40 randomly
selected Americans. They find a mean of 113.03 gallons and a standard deviation of 25.99
gallons. Calculate the appropriate test statistic to test the hypotheses.

bottles that move along a filling line. The machine that dispenses dressing is working properly
when 8 ounces are dispensed. The standard deviation of the process is 0.15 ounces. A sample
of 48 bottles is selected periodically, and the filling line is stopped if there is evidence that the
mean amount dispensed is different from 8 ounces. Suppose that the mean amount dispensed
in a particular sample of 48 bottles is 7.983 ounces. Calculate the test statistic.
