D) t-value with df = n - 1.

E) none of the above

16. If I want to test the null hypothesis that the mean is 100 versus the alternative that it is greater than 100, and I get a

E) H0: = 25,000, H1: 25,000

If you want to carry out a statistical test at = 0.01, to test whether the population mean is equal to 500 or not,

A) do not reject the null hypothesis

B) reject the null hypothesis

C) not enough information to determine

D) only reject when the test statistic is negative

E) none of the above
