After a thorough financial analysis, she determines that the new system will be cost-effective only if the mean monthly account is greater than R70. A random sample of 200 monthly accounts is drawn, for which the sample mean account is R74. The manager knows that the accounts are normally distributed, with a standard deviation of R30. Is there enough evidence at the 5% significance level to conclude that the new system will be cost effective? (Remember to use the 4-step process.)2.
