c. The results of a survey conducted by Purchasing revealed that the mean age of a purchasing manager is 46.2.This seems too young to you and you want to conduct a test to determine if the average age of a purchasing manager is older than 46.2.
d. According to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics Consumer Expenditure Survey, the average family spends $3,465 annually on meals at home.
