To see whether people are keeping their car tires inflated to the correct level of 35 pounds per square inch (psi), a tire company manager selects a sample of 36 tires and checks the pressure. The mean of the sample is 33.5 psi, and the population standard deviation is 3 psi. Are the tires properly inflated? Use α = 0.10.

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/probability related to your Z score.
