Expert Answer

Step 1

Hello. Since your question has multiple sub-parts, we will solve the first three sub-parts for you. If you want remaining sub-parts to be solved, then please resubmit the whole question and specify those sub-parts you want us to solve.

 

1.Here, the average salary of all substitute teachers in every school district is required to be tested. The sample size is 8. The population standard deviation is unknown.

Step 2

2.Since the population standard deviation is unknown and the sample size is small, the appropriate test to test the mean is one sample t-test with n-1 degrees of freedom.

The test is one-sided (left-tailed).

Step 3

3.The conditions that have to be satisfied to test the mean using one sample t-test are:

  • The sample is drawn from a ...
