Slide 43 of PowerPoint

The Medical Rehabilitation Education Foundation reports that the average cost of rehabilitation for stroke victims is \$24,672. To see if the average cost of rehabilitation is different at a particular hospital, a researcher selects a random sample of 35 stroke victims at the hospital and finds that the average cost of their rehabilitation is  \$26,343. The standard deviation of the population is \$3251. At α = 0.01, can it be concluded that the average cost of stroke rehabilitation at a particular hospital is different from \$24,672?
