Suppose the distance of each jump is a random variable that follows a normal distribution with mean ? and variance ?2. He jumps 8 times and records the following distances. Jump Distance (meters) 1 8.79 2 8.87 3 8.82 4 8.49 5 8.74 6 8.32 7 8.84 8 8.50 The athlete says that he is better than Carl Lewis who jumped an average distance of 8.50 throughout his career. Test that hypothesis through the following steps: a.) Re-state the hypothesis in terms of what it says about the population parameters. b.) Calculate the t-statistic for the hypothesis test c.)
