A swimming school claimed that the average seven-year-old would be able to swim across an Olympic-sized pool in less than 2 minutes after taking lessons from their instructors. To test this claim, a consumer psychologist arranged for eight randomly selected seven-year-old children to take lessons at the school and recorded how long it took each child to swim across a pool at the end of the lessons. The average time (in seconds) was a 95 with a sum of squares of 4200. What conclusion would the psychologist draw following a two-tailed t test for a single sample using 120 seconds as the "known" population mean and the .05 significance level.
