Question

A scrap metal dealer claims that the mean of his cash sales is “no more than $80,” but an Internal Revenue Service agent believes the dealer is untruthful. Observing a sample of 20 cash customers, the agent finds the mean purchase to be $91, with a standard deviation of $21. Assuming the population is approximately normally distributed, and using the 0.05 level of significance, is the agent’s suspicion confirmed?
