In this survey of 28 P.B.S.C students, an inference was made from the
population mean of how many hours a student worked weekly. The
results are as follows:
Standard deviation: 2.33
I can say with 95% confidence that the population mean of semesters
completed falls between the range of:
2.346521 < mean 6.45(claim)
Sample mean falls within the blue
highlighted area on the graph. Number in the center of the graph represents the
Null is the standard mean of the population.
Claim is the projection testing the standard mean.
Significance level: 0.0
I can say with 90% confidence that the sample mean falls
0.8640112 < µ < 3.395989
Results: Fail to Reject the Null Hypothesis
Sample does not provide enough evidence to support the claim
