Step 1

The claim is provided as that the mean,   life of a certain type of tire is more than 30,000 miles.

a. The claim, mathematically, can be represented as;

b. The null and the alternative hypotheses are stated as shown below, respectively,

Step 2

c. A type I error will occur if the actual mean life of a certain type of tire is less than or equal to 30,000 miles but the null hypothesis is rejected.

A type II error will occur if the actual mean life of a certain ty...
