An article titled “Teen Boys Forget Whatever It Was” appeared in the Australian newspaper The Mercury (April 21, 1997). It described a study of academic performance and attention span and reported that the mean time to distraction for teenage boys working on an independent task was 4 minutes. Although the sample size was not given in the article, suppose that this mean was based on a random sample of 50 teenage Australian boys and that the sample standard deviation was 1.4 minutes. Is there convincing evidence that the average attention span for teenage boys is less than = minutes? Test the relevant hypotheses using a = .01.
