Statistic

A restaurant that bills its house account monthly is concerned that the average monthly bill exceeds $200 per account. A random sample of twelve accounts is selected, resulting in the sample mean of $220 and a sample standard deviation of $12. The researchers have determined that they should test that the mean bill exceeds $200 at the 5% level of significance.

    Mean: 220.00
    SD: 12.00
    α: 0.05

    H0:<=200 H1:>200
    Reject H0 if t > 1.796

    t=(220.00 - 200.0)/(12.00/sq 12)

    t= 20.00 / 3.46

    t= 5.77

    Reject H0 because t value is greater than 1.796
