What is the test statistic for your hypothesis test in part (a)? (Round your answer to three decimal places.)

What is the p-value for your hypothesis test in part (a)? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)

(d)
Repeat the preceding hypothesis test using the critical value approach.
State the null and alternative hypotheses. (Enter != for ≠ as needed.)
