Module 3 Homework Assignment
1. Determine whether the hypothesis test involves a sampling distribution of means that is a normal distribution, Student t distribution or neither. The sample data appear to come from a normally distributed population with σ = 28. Explain.
Claim: μ = 977.
Sample data: n = 25, = 984, s = 25. Explain.
