# The mean income per person in the United States is \$44,000, and the distribution of incomes follows a normal distribution.

The mean income per person in the United States is \$44,000, and the distribution of incomes follows a normal distribution. A random sample of 15 residents of Wilmington, Delaware, had a mean of \$48,000 with a standard deviation of \$10,500. At the 0.100 level of significance, is that enough evidence to conclude that residents of Wilmington, Delaware, have more income than the national average?

1. State the null hypothesis and the alternate hypothesis.

1. State the decision rule for 0.100 significance level. (Round your answer to 3 decimal places.)
