Determine the P-value for this test. Is there sufficient evidence to justify the rejection of Ho at the a=0.01 level? Explain and show work.

**MathGuru**, Monday, March 11, 2013 at 7:52pmUse a one-sample z-test.

z = (sample mean - population mean)/(standard deviation divided by the square root of the sample size)

With your data:

z = (522.3 - 530)/(29/√85) = ?

Finish the calculation.

Check a z-table at .01 level of significance for a two-tailed test (H1 does not show a specific direction; therefore, the test is two-tailed.)

If the z-test statistic exceeds the critical value from the z-table, reject the null and conclude H1 ≠ 530. If the z-test statistic does not exceed the critical value from the z-table, do not reject the null. If you determine the P-value, check the table using the z-test statistic. The P-value is the actual level of the test statistic.

I hope this will help get you started.
