Homework Help: Math

Posted by Alison on Saturday, December 22, 2012 at 2:38pm.

Let x be a random variable representing the monthly cost of joining a gym. We may assume that x has a normal distribution and that the population standard deviation is $5.20. A fitness magazine advertises that the mean monthly cost of joining a gym is $35. You work for a consumer advocacy group and are asked to test this claim. You find that a random sample of 40 health club monthly costs has a mean of $37.30. If you assume that the population mean is $35, find the standardized sample test statistic.
