The manufacturer of a particular battery pack for laptop computers claims its battery packs can function for 9 hours, on the average, before having to be recharged. A competitor claims that the manufacturer’s claim is too high. A random sample of 35 battery packs was selected and placed on test. The mean functioning time before having to be recharged was 7.4 hours with a standard deviation of 1.8 hours. Perform the appropriate test of hypothesis to determine whether the competitor is correct. Test using alpha = 0.05. Calculate the test statistic and round your answer to the hundredths place.
