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.

Two-tailed test:

**a.** z = -1.66 **b.** z = 0.52
