Data Set 3 in Appendix B includes a sample of 106 body temperatures with a mean of 98.20°F and a standard deviation of 0.62°F. Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that the mean body temperature of the population is equal to 98.6°F, as is commonly believed. Is there sufficient evidence to conclude that the common belief is wrong?
Use either the P-value method or the critical value method for testing hypotheses. Identify the null and alternative hypotheses, test statistic, P-value (or range of P-values), critical value(s), and state the final conclusion that addresses the original claim.
