In Exercises, 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. Right-tailed test: a. z = 1.24 b. z = -0.69

Question

In Exercises, 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.

Right-tailed test:

a. z = 1.24 b. z = -0.69
