An engineer has designed a valve that will regulate water pressure on an automobile engine. The valve was tested on 120 engines and the mean pressure was 5 lbs/square inch. Assume the variance is known to be 1. If the valve was designed to produce a mean pressure of 5.1 lbs/square inch, is there sufficient evidence at the 0.02 level that the valve performs below the specifications?State the null and alternative hypotheses for the above scenario.
