Does the test show enough evidence to reject the findings of Robert Half International? Use a = .05. Make sure you clearly state both the null and the alternative hypotheses in full sentences. Following your calculations, clearly state the conclusion in the same manner (do not simply say "accept/reject null") and explain how you arrived at this conclusion (based on which metrics). 

Make sure you use full sentences for the items below. Do not simply say something like "x1<x2" "or "reject null" without a description and explanation of how you arrived at your conclusion.

Null hypothesis:

Alternative hypothesis:

Calculated z value:

Conclusion (justify using the metrics):
