The director of research and development is testing a new medicine. She wants to know if there is evidence at the 0.02 level that the medicine relieves pain in more than 346 seconds. For a sample of 58 patients, the mean time in which the medicine relieved pain was 352 seconds. Assume the population standard deviation is 23. Find the P-value of the test statistic.
