A rental agent claims that the mean monthly rent, u , for apartments on the east side of town is less than \$675. A random sample of 21 monthly rents for apartments on the east side has a mean of \$674, with a standard deviation of \$18. If we assume that the monthly rents for apartments on the east side are normally distributed, is there enough evidence to conclude, at the 0.1 level of significance, that u is less than \$675?
