1. The sample is a simple random sample. 2. The population standard deviation, , is known. 3. Either or both of these conditions is satisfied: The population is normally distributed or n > 30 . Test Statistic for Testing a Claim about a Mean with known z= x - / n Use the standard normal distribution to calculate critical values and P-values. Example
Use the Traditional Method, P-value Method and Confidence Interval Method to perform the Hypothesis Test for the following claim: We are given a simple random sample of 106 body temperatures having a mean of 98.2 F. Assume that the population standard deviation, , is known to be 0.62 F. Use a 0.05 significance level to test the common belief that the mean body temperature of healthy adults is equal to 98.6 F.
