The average age of online consumers a few years ago was 23.3 years. As older individuals gain confidence with the Internet, it is believed that the average age has increased. We would like to test this belief.
a) Write appropriate hypotheses.
b) We plan to test the null hypothesis by selecting a random sample of 40 individuals who have made an online purchase this year. Do you think the necessary assumptions for inference are satisfied? Explain.

d) Explain (in context) what this P-value means.
