Question: A simple random sample of 25 filtered 100 mm cigarettes is

A simple random sample of 25 filtered 100-mm cigarettes is obtained, and the tar content of each cigarette is measured. The sample has a standard deviation of 3.7 mg (based on Data Set 10 in Appendix B). Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that the tar content of filtered 100-mm cigarettes has a standard deviation different from 3.2 mg, which is the standard deviation for unfiltered king-size cigarettes.
Identify the null hypothesis, alternative hypothesis, test statistic, P-value or critical value(s), conclusion about the null hypothesis, and final conclusion that addresses the original claim. Assume that a simple random sample is selected from a normally distributed population.
