**PsyDAG**, Monday, December 17, 2012 at 11:36pmIt depends on what question you are asking.

Ho: mean = 81%

Ha: mean ≠ 81%

Two-tailed

Ho: mean = $3.00

Ha: mean > $3.00

I'm not sure what you mean by right-tailed or left-tailed. I don't use those specific terms.

**PsyDAG**, Tuesday, December 18, 2012 at 12:52amUpon further thought, right-tailed may be the equivalent to positively skewed (deviant scores at higher values). If so, the second Ha would be right-tailed.

The mean is influenced by deviant scores, like a fulcrum (balance point). Thus Ha for "more than $3.00" would be looking for a higher mean and "right-tailed."
