In a recent year, scores on a standardized test for high schools student with a 3.50 to 4.00 grade point average were normally distributed, with a meanof 37.9 and a standard deviationof 2.4. A student with a 3.50 to 4.00 grade point average who took the standardized test is randomly selected.

*A microwave oven repairer says that the mean repair cost for damaged microwave ovens is less than $110. You work for the repairer and want to test this claim. You find that a random sampleof five microwave ovens has a mean repair cost of $115 and a standard deviation of $12.50. At a=0.05, do you have enough to support the repairer’s claim? Assume the population is normally distributed.
