Question: A health researcher read that a 200 pound male can burn

A health researcher read that a 200-pound male can burn an average of 546 calories per hour playing tennis. Thirty-six males were randomly selected and tested. The mean of the number of calories burned per hour was 544.8. Test the claim that the average number of calories burned is actually less than 546, and find the P-value. On the basis of the P-value, should the null hypothesis be rejected at α = 0.01? The standard deviation of the population is 3. Can it be concluded that the average number of calories burned is less than originally thought?
