    help with null claim

    The question is this... Test the claim about the population mean at the given level of significance using the given sample statistics.

    Claim mean> 1030; a = 0.05, sample statistics (xbar) = 1035, s= 23 n = 35. This is what I have and I'm wondering if I have it right. I assumed it was a right tail test with the z test with z(little o) = 1.644. and do not reject the null hypothesis. Does this sound close?

    As the sample size is small, and you are working with the sample SD, you
    should be using the t-test, with 34 degrees of freedom.
