Let X be the oral surgery insurance claims

n = 25

Xmean = 275.55

SD = 78.11

H0: μx ≤ 250

H1: μx > 250, α = 0.05

Decision Rule:

If (275.55 - 250)/(78.11/5) > Z(1 - 0.05), we reject H0.

If 1.63 ≯ 1.645, we don't reject H0.

Decision:

With a confidence of 95%, we conclude that the sample doesn't prove a violation of the guideline.

I we work with that grade of confidence, this isn't a closed decision!

No, because ObamaCare would give the people their out-of-pocket money back after stealing it from the hard-working successfull Americans.
