To determine whether themean nicotine content of a brand of cigarettes is greater than the advertised value of 1.4 milligrams, a health advocacy program tests:
Ho: mu = 1.4
Ha: mu > 1.4
The calculated value of the test statistic is z = 2.42.
==> How do I calculate the pvalue from just this zstatistic? Thanks for your help!

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion related to the Z score.
