Project #70607 - Homework assignment BTM7106-8-2

The producers of a new toothpaste claim that it prevents more cavities than other brands of toothpaste. A random sample of 60 people use the new toothpaste for 6 months. The mean number of cavities at their next check up is 1.5. In the general population the mean # of cavities after a 6 month check up is 1.73 (@= 1.12). 


a) is it 1 or 2 tailed test? (I think one- tailed) 
b) What are the Ho and Ha for this study? I think: 
Ho: µ = µ1 or µ cavities from new toothpaste= cavities any other brand toothpaste 
Ho: µ0>µ1 or µ cavities from new toothpaste> µ cavities with any other brand toothpaste 
Ha: µ0<µ1 or µ cavities from new toothpaste<µ cavities with any other brand toothpaste 

c) Compute Zobt -I don't know how 
d) What is Z cv?- Also don't know. 
e) Should Ho be rejected (I think yes) 
f) Determine the 95% confidence interval for the population mean
