In making aluminum castings into alternator housings, an average of 3.5 ounces per casting must be trimmed off and recycled as a raw material. A new manufacturing procedure has been proposed to reduce the amount of aluminum that must be recycled in this way. For a sample of 35 castings made with the new process, data file XR10111 lists the weights of aluminum trimmed and recycled. Based on the sample data, and using the 0.01 level, has the new procedure significantly reduced the average amount of aluminum trimmed and recycled? Identify and interpret the p-value for the test.
