Identify the null and alternative hypothesis in the following scenario.
To determine if battery 1 lasts longer than battery 2, the mean lasting times, of the two competing batteries are compared. Twenty batteries of each type are randomly sampled and tested. Both populations have normal distributions with unknown standard deviations.
Select the correct answer below: H0:μ1μ2,Ha:μ1<μ2
H0:μ1μ2,Ha:μ1>μ2
H0:μ1μ2,Ha:μ1<μ2
H0:μ1=μ2,Ha:μ1μ2
H0:μ1μ2,Ha:μ1>μ2

The manager of the store in the preceding exercise calculated the residual for each point in the scatterplot and made a dotplot of the residuals.
The distribution of residuals is roughly Normal with a mean of $0 and standard deviation of $22.92.

The college physical education department offered an advanced first aid course last semester. The scores on the comprehensive final exam were normally distributed, and the z scores for some of the students are shown below: Robert, 1.10 Juan, 1.70 Susan, -2.00 Joel, 0.00 Jan, -0.80 Linda, 1.60 If the mean score was μ=150μ=150 with standard deviation σ=20,σ=20, what was the final exam score for each student?
