Full time Ph.D. Students receive an average salary of $12,837 with a standard deviation of$1500 according to the U.S. Department of Education.

$\displaystyle H_0:\mu=12,837$ vs. $\displaystyle H_1:\mu>12,837$

the approximate test statistic, via the central limit theorem, is $\displaystyle Z={13445-12837\over 1500/\sqrt{44}}$

The critcal region is $\displaystyle (1.645,\infty)$
