If the researcher uses a hypothesis test to evaluate the treatment effect, what z-score would be obtained for this sample?

To determine

To find: The value of z-score.

Explanation

Given info:

The sample size n=16, population mean μ=40, population standard deviation σ=8 and sample mean M=43

Calculation:

The z-score is obtained as follows:
