Researchers at a National Weather Center in the north-eastern United States recorded the number of 90° days each year since records first started in 1875. The numbers form a normal shaped distribution with a mean of μ = .9.6 and a standard deviation of σ = 1.9. To see if the data showed any evidence of global warming, they also computed the mean number of 90° days for the most recent n = 4 years and obtained M = 11.85. Do the data indicate that the past four years have had significantly more 90° days than would be expected for a random sample from this population? Use a one-tailed test with α = .05.
