Answer to Question #28986 in Statistics and Probability for Reid Mortson
you are interested in studying a particular species of ant, A. spectacularis, and think that you have located a suitable colony. Unfortunately, there are seveeral closely related species that can only be distinguished by size. You know that A. spectacularis has a mean length of 0.75cm. You sample 12 ants from your colony, and determine that their mean is 0.68cm, with a standard deviation of 0.05cm. is it likely you have discovered the A. spectacularis species? why why not?
