The accompanying data table lists measured voltage amounts supplied directly to a family’s home. The power supply company states that it has a target power supply of 120 volts. Using these home voltage amounts, test the claim that the mean is 120 volts. Use a 0.05 significance level. Calculate the test statistic.

    Ugh, this isn't an incredibly user-friendly format... Anyway, the first thing to do is compute the mean of the sample, so take the average of the "Volts" data (see the pic below). We'll use a \(Z\) test to compare this sample mean to the predicted mean. \[Z=\frac{123.763-120}{0.295858}\approx12.7\]

    If you're at all familiar with the standard normal distribution, the conclusion should be obvious, but if you're not, consult a table of \(z\) scores, like the one linked here: http://www.rochester.edu/college/psc/clarke/201/ztable2.jpg Notice that our calculated \(Z\) is not even listed.
