the average tensile strength of rubber used in making a certain brand of radial tire. The
population is normally distributed and the population standard deviation is known. She uses a
Z test to test the null hypothesis that the mean tensile strength is less than or equal to 800
pounds per square inch. The calculated Z test statistic is a positive value that leads to a pvalue of .067 for the test. If the significance level is .10, the null hypothesis would be
rejected.

the average tensile strength of rubber used in making a certain brand of radial tire. The
population is normally distributed and the population standard deviation is known. She uses a
Z test to test the null hypothesis that the mean tensile strength is 800 pounds per square inch.
The calculated Z test statistic is a positive value that leads to a pvalue of .045 for the test. If
the significance level (α) is .05, the null hypothesis would be rejected.
