Math SAT: Suppose the national mean SAT score in mathematics was 515. In a random sample of 40 graduates from Stevens High, the mean SAT score in math was 508, with a standard deviation of 35. Test the claim that the mean SAT score for Stevens High graduates is the same as the national average. Test this claim at the 0.10 significance level.

(a) What type of test is this?

This is a left-tailed test.This is a two-tailed test.     This is a right-tailed test.

(b) What is the test statistic? Round your answer to 2 decimal places.
tx =

(c) Use software to get the P-value of the test statistic. Round to 4 decimal places.
P-value =

(d) What is the conclusion regarding the null hypothesis?

reject H0fail to reject H0

(e) Choose the appropriate concluding statement.

There is enough data to justify rejection of the claim that the mean math SAT score for Stevens High graduates is the same as the national average. There is not enough data to justify rejection of the claim that the mean math SAT score for Stevens High graduates is the same as the national average.     We have proven that the mean math SAT score for Stevens High graduates is the same as the national average.

The statistical software output for this problem is:

Hence,

a) This is a two-tailed test.

b) Test statistic = -1.26

c) P-value = 0.2134

d) Fail to reject Ho

e) There is not enough data to justify rejection of the claim that the mean math SAT score for Stevens High graduates is the same as the national average.
