The average depth of the Hudson Bay is 305 feet. Climatologists were interested in seeing if the effects of warming and ice melt were affecting the water level. Fifty-five measurements over a period of weeks yielded a sample mean of 306.2 feet. The population variance is known to be 3.57. Can it be concluded at the 0.05 level of significance that the average depth has increased? Is there evidence of what caused this to happen?

d. Make the decision.

Use diagrams to show the critical region (or regions), and use the traditional method of hypothesis testing unless otherwise specified.
