**MathGuru**, Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 5:48pmH0: µ = 80 -->null hypothesis

H1: µ < 80 -->alternative hypothesis

Critical value for a one-tailed test (the alternative hypothesis shows a specific direction) can be found using a z-table at .05 level of significance.

Calculate the test statistic using a one-sample z-test.

With your data:

z = (76 - 80)/(10/√25)

Finish the calculation.

If the test statistic exceeds the critical value from the table, reject the null and conclude µ < 80. If the test statistic does not exceed the critical value from the table, do not reject the null (you cannot conclude a difference in this case).

I hope this will help get you started.
