...8 - mean)^2

<br>

<br>Then you take the number, and divide by 8= and that is the standard deviation!

<br>

<br>

<br>Now, you can calculate the test statistic which will be the T test

<br>

<br>You take the hypothesized mean (12 ) and subtract the actual mean and divide by the standard deviation

<br>

<br>t = mean hypothesized - mean actual/standard deviation

<br>

<br>You will have to compare ...
