1) A light bulb producing company states that its lights will last an average of 1200 hours with a standard deviation of 200 hours. A sample of 100 light bulbs from the company were tested and the researcher found that the average life of each light bulb was 1050 hours. At a 95% confidence level, determine whether these light bulbs are in compliance with the company's claim.

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 related to the Z score for your alpha level.
