In this problem, you will determine what the experimenter should conclude.

Using the 5% level of significance (alpha):

A) Determine the null and research hypotheses;

B) Select the correct template (templates for the Single Sample t-test, the Independent Samples t-test, and the ANOVA are included in the tabs that follow this tab);

C) Complete each of the blank cells in the template selected (round to two decimal places).

D) State your conclusion, making reference to the test statistic, the critical value, the effect size, and your hypotheses.
