To conduct a one sample test of means and use the z distribution as the test statisticA) We need to know the population standard deviation. B) We can use the sample standard deviation provided n is at least 30. C) We need np to be at least 5. D) Both A and B are correct. 8

The p-value isA) The same as the population proportion. B) The same as the significance level. C) The fraction of the population that has a particular characteristic. D) The probability of finding a value of the test statistic this extreme when the null hypothesis is true. 9
