An engineering firm is evaluating their back charges. They originally believed their average back charge was $1800. They are concerned that the true average is higher, which could hurt their quarterly earnings. They randomly select 40 customers, and calculate the corresponding sample mean back charge to be $1950. If the standard deviation of back charges is $500, and alpha = 0.05, should the engineering firm be concerned?
