Each part of this exercise provides a scenario for a hypothesis test for a population mean. Decide whether the z-test is an appropriate method for conducting the hypothesis test. Assume that the population standard deviation is known in each case.
a. A normal probability plot of the sample data shows no outliers and is quite linear. The sample size is 12.
b. Preliminary data analyses reveal that the sample data contain an outlier. It is determined that the outlier is a legitimate observation and should not be removed. The sample size is 17.
