Based on a sample of 75 people, the sample mean GPA was 2.86 with a standard deviation of 0.07. The p-value is: ____ (to 2 decimals)

Based on this we: reject the null hypothesis or fail to reject the null hypothesis?

Answer #1

Here, we are testing whether the mean GPA of night students is smaller than 2.9, therefore the null and the alternate hypothesis here are given as:

**Therefore E is the correct answer here.**

This is clearly a **left tailed test** as can be
seen from the alternate hypothesis.

b) The test statistic here is computed as:

Now for n - 1 = 74 degrees of freedom, we get the p-value from the t distribution tables as:

p = P( t_{74} < -4.9487 ) = approx. 0

**Therefore p -value = 0**

Based on this the test is significant and **we can reject
the null hypothesis here.**
