We wish to test a claim that the average age of men MBA students across various M

is greater than 28 years.For this we collect data on average ages of men MBA studen
40 MBA programs in the US.
STEP 1:FORMULATE HYPOTHESIS
NULL HYPOTHEIS H0: mu < or =
ALTERNATE HYPOTHESIS HA: mu >
//ONE TAIL TEST
STEP 2:CALCULATE T STATISTIC

sample size,n= 40
sample mean,x bar= 32.625
population mean,mu= 28
sample standard deviation,s= 8.574522

t statistic= 3.411393

STEP 3:CALCULATE CUTOFF VALUES FOR T STATISTIC

Taking alpha= 0.05


degree of freedom,n-1= 39
CUTOFF VALUE= 1.684875
//FROM T DISTRIBUTION TABLE
STEP 4:CHECK IF T STATISTIC FALLS IN THE REJECTION REGION

YES

RESULT:
REJECT NULL HYPOTHESIS
DO NOT REJECT ALETRNATE HYPOTHESIS
