since population standard deviation is known, we can use Z

Test stat Z = (x-bar - mean)/(standard deviation/sqrt(n))

Z = (16.2 - 15)/(5.6/sqrt(49))

If you calculate this correctly , you should get Z = 1.50

The critical values are Z = 2.43 and Z = -2.43 since this is a
two-tailed test. The critical value was found looking up .9925 on the
chart. Took .015/2 = .0075 and then 1-. 0075 to get .9925. It was
alpha/2 because of the two-tailed test.

Since 1.5 < 2.43, accept Ho

P-value was .133614. Using the
chart it's .1336. In any event, since that value is greater than alpha
for the test, accept Ho
