A large furniture store has begun a new ad campaign on local television. Before the campaign, the long term average daily sales were \$24,819. A random sample of 40 days during the new ad campaign gave a sample mean daily sale of x(bar)=\$25,910 with sample standard deviation s=\$1917. Does this indicate that the population mean daily sales is now more than \$24,819? Use a 1% level of significance.

1. MathGuru

Use a one-sample z-test.

Ho: µ = 24819 ---> null hypothesis
Ha: µ > 24819 -->alternate hypothesis

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

z = (25910 - 24819)/(1917/√40) = ?

Finish the calculation.

Check a z-table at .01 level of significance for a one-tailed test.
If the z-test statistic exceeds the critical value from the z-table, reject the null and conclude µ > 24819. If the z-test statistic does not exceed the critical value from the z-table, do not reject the null.

I hope this will help get you started.
