The following two hypotheses are tested:

  • Ho: The average number of miles driven per year is 12,000.
  • Ha: The average number of miles driven per year is less than 12,000.

In a survey, 1,600 randomly selected drivers were asked the number of miles they drive yearly. Based upon the results, the p-value = 0.068.
