At a very large firm, the clerk-typists were sampled to see whether salaries differed among departments for workers in similar categories. In a sample of 50 of the firm’s accounting clerks, the average annual salary was $16,010. The firm’s personnel office insists that the average salary paid to all clerk-typists in the firm is $15,650 and that the standard deviation is $1800. At the 0.05 level of significance, can we conclude that the accounting clerks receive, on average, a different salary from that of the clerk-typists?
a. Solve using the p-value approach.
