Medical research has shown that repeated wrist extension beyond 20 degrees increases the risk of wrist and hand injuries. Each of 24 students at Cornell University used a proposed new computer mouse design, and while using the mouse, each student’s wrist extension was recorded. Data consistent with summary values given in the paper “Comparative Study of Two Computer Mouse Designs” (Cornell Human Factors Laboratory Technical Report RP7992) are given. Use these data to test the hypothesis that the mean wrist extension for people using this new mouse design is greater than 20 degrees. Are any assumptions required in order for it to be appropriate to generalize the results of your test to the population of Cornell students? To the population of all university students?
