The Old Farmer’s Almanac stated that the average consumption of water per person per day was 123 gallons. To test the hypothesis that this figure may no longer be true, a researcher randomly selected 16 people and found that they used on average 119 gallons per day and s = 5.3. At α = 0.05, is there enough evidence to say that the Old Farmer’s Almanac figure might no longer be correct? Use the P-value method.
Perform each of the following steps.
a. State the hypotheses and identify the claim.
b. Find the critical value(s).
c. Find the test value.
d. Make the decision.
e. Summarize the results.
Use the traditional method of hypothesis testing unless otherwise specified.
Assume that the population is approximately normally distributed.
