Hypothesis testing for the mean Calculator

Enter X Enter n (sample size) Enter standard deviation Enter H0 Enter α

100 randomly selected items were tested. It was found that the average of the sample was 980.
The standard deviation of the items tested is 80.
Test the hypothesis that the mean is exactly 1000 at α = 0.01

State the null and alternative hypothesis:

H0:  μ = 1000
HA:  μ ≠ 1000

Calculate our test statistic z:

z  =  X - μ

z  =  980 - 1000

z  =  -20

z  =  -20

z = -2.5

Determine rejection region:

Since our null hypothesis is H0:  μ = 1000, this is a two tailed test
Checking our table of z-scores for α(left); = 0.005 and α(right); = 0.995, we get:
Z left tail of = -2.3263 and Z right tail of
Our rejection region is Z < -2.3263 and Z >

What is the Answer?

Since our test statistic of -2.5 is in the rejection region, we reject H0
