Question: Variation in the life of a battery is expected but

Variation in the life of a battery is expected, but too much variation would be of concern to the consumer, who would never know if the purchased battery might have a very short life. A random sample of 30 AA batteries of a particular brand produced a standard deviation of 350 hours. If a standard deviation of 288 hours (12 days) is considered acceptable, does this sample provide sufficient evidence that this brand of battery has greater variation than what is acceptable at the 0.05 level of significance? Assume battery life is normally distributed.
