Listed below are the numbers of years it took for a random sample of college students to earn bachelor’s degrees (based on data from the National Center for Education Statistics). Use a 0.01 significance level to test the claim that for all college students, the mean time required to earn a bachelor’s degree is greater than 4.0 years. Is there anything about the data that would suggest that the conclusion might not be valid?
