  1. Perform the hypothesis test.
    • If you selected Option 1:
      • Original Claim: The average salary for all jobs in Minnesota is less than $65,000.
      • Test the claim using a = 0.05 and assume your data is normally distributed and s is unknown.

    5. What is the critical value?
    6. What is your decision; reject the null or do not reject the null?
      1. Explain why you made your decision including the results for your p-value and the critical value.
    7. State the final conclusion in non-technical terms.

Please show your work for the construction of the test-statistic and
explain your process for finding the p-value and critical value. Be sure
to use the Equation Editor to format your equations.
