An automobile manufacturer substitutes a different engine in cars that were known to have an average miles-per-gallon rating of 31.5 on the highway. The manufacturer wants to test whether the new engine changes the miles-per-gallon rating of the automobile model. A random sample of 100 trial runs gives x-bar = 29.8 miles per gallon and s = 6.6 miles per gallon. Using the 0.05 level of significance, is the average miles-per-gallon rating on the highway for cars using the new engine different from the rating for cars using the old engine?
