The results for a sample of 100 business majors receiving a bachelor's degree in 2018 showed a mean starting salary of \$51,288 with a sample standard deviation of \$5,200. Conduct a hypothesis test to determine whether the mean starting salary for business majors in 2018 is greater than the mean starting salary in 2017. Use
