She will reject this claim on ly if it is clearly contradicted by the sample mean. the sample deviation of 36 accounts is $43, the sample mean is $250, and the levek if significance is 5%.
a) write out the null and alternative hypotheses.

Ho: mean1 = mean2
Ha: mean1 ≠ mean2
Z = (mean1  mean2)/standard error (SE) of difference between means
SEdiff = √(SEmean1^2 + SEmean2^2)
SEm = SD/√n
If only one SD is provided, you can use just that to determine SEdiff.
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion from the Z score.
