Question
Test the given claims using the traditional method of hypothesis testing.
 
Various temperature measurements are recorded at different times for a particular city. The mean of 20°C is obtained for 40 temperatures recorded on 40 different days. Assuming that the standard deviation is 1.5°C, test the claim that the population mean is 22°C. Use a 0.05 significance level.
