### Re: statistics

Hi cassrl;

What have you done with this problem? What is the null hypthesis and the alternative one? Do you know how to start the problem? How to get z here? Is it a two tailed test or a one tailed? Can I see a little of your work?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
