The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that the mean cost of raising a child from birth to age 2 in arural area is \$8390. You believe this value is incorrect, so you select a random sample of 900 children(age 2) and find that the mean cost is \$8275. Assume the standard deviation for the cost of raising achild from birth to age 2 is \$1540. Test your claim at the .05 level of significance.1.4.2.3.5.3.) You receive a brochure from a large university. The brochure indicates that the mean class size for fulltime faculty is less than 32. You want to test this claim.
