A pharmaceutical manufacturer is concerned that the impurity concentration in pills does not exceed 3%. It is known that from a particular production run, impurity concentrations follow a normal distribution with standard deviation 0.4%. A random sample of 64 pills from a production run was checked, and the sample mean impurity concentration was found to be 3.07%.
a. Test, at the 5% level, the null hypothesis that the population mean impurity concentration is 3% against the alternative that it is more than 3%.
b. Find the probability of a 5%-level test rejecting the null hypothesis when the true mean impurity concentration is 3.10%.
