The mean price of a Big Mac in the U.S. in May 2009 was $3.57. For purposes of this exercise, assume it is reasonable to regard the sample as representative of European McDonald’s restaurants. Does the sample provide convincing evidence that the mean May 2009 price of a Big Mac in Europe is greater than the reported U.S. price? Test the relevant hypotheses using a = .05.
