Question

An article published by the American Meteorological Society, gives a rating system used to classify Nor'easter storms that frequently hit New England which often cause havoc near the ocean. A severe storm has an average peak wave height of μ=16.4μ feet for waves near the shore. Suppose that a Nor'easter is in progress at the severe storm class rating. Peak wave heights are usually measured from land off piers. Suppose that a reading of 32 waves showed an average wave height of x¯=14.3 feet. Previous reports of severe storms indicate that σ=3.5 feet. Does this information suggest that the storm is decreasing below the severe rating? Use α=0.01 to test the claim.

What is the level of significance?

State the null and alternate hypotheses.
H0:H0:? p σ μ χ  Select an answer < = ≠ > 

H1:H1:? μ p χ σ  Select an answer ≠ > = <
