Question

In each part, we have given the value obtained for the test statistic, z, in a one-mean z-test.We have also specified whether the test is two tailed, left tailed, or right tailed. Determine the P-value in each case and decide whether, at the 5% significance level, the data provide sufficient evidence to reject the null hypothesis in favor of the alternative hypothesis.

a. z = -1.25; left-tailed test

b. z = 2.36; right-tailed test

c. z = 1.83; two-tailed test
