Step 1

A. Hypotheses:

Denote µ as the population mean salary for family practitioners in LA. The claim is that mean salary of for family practitioners in LA is greater than the national average. The hypotheses that is appropriate to this claim are as follows:

Null hypothesis:

H0: µ = 178,258

That is, the mean salary of for family practitioners in LA is same as the national average.

Alternate hypothesis:

H1: µ > 178,258

That is, the mean salary of for family practitioners in LA is greater than the national average.

Step 2

B. Compute the values of the test statistics.

The formula for test statistic is,

Step 3

Where x-bar is the sample means, µ0 hypothesized mean, s is the sample standard deviation and n is sample size, respectively.

Substitute x-bar = 192,340...
