posted by .

Suppose that the average grade for all people who take this course in statistics is 83 with a standard deviation of 3.5. If your particular class has an average of 89, can you conclude that your class is better than average at the 90 percent confidence level?

  • Hypothesis -

    You need to consult your statistics text for the methods involved. However, I will start you out.

    Since you are only concerned with whether the class (mean 2) scored higher, it is a one-tailed test.

    Ho: mean 1 = mean 2
    H1: mean 1 < mean 2

    I'll leave the rest to you.
