Suppose the number of beds filled per day in a mediumsized
hospital is normally distributed. A hospital administrator tells
the board of directors that, on the average, at least 184 beds are
filled on any given day. One of the board members believes that the
average is less than 184 and she sets out to test to determine if
she is correct. She secures a random sample of 16 days of data
(shown below). Use α = 0.05 and the sample data to test
the board member’s theory. Assume the number of filled beds per day
is normally distributed in the population.
