A random sample 49 adult coyotes in a region of northern Minnesota showed the average age to be XXXX = 2.05 years with sample standard deviation s=0.82 years. However, it is throught that the overall population mean age of coyotes is μ=1.75. Does the sample data indicate that coyotes in this region of northern Minnesota tend to live longer than the average of 1.75 years? Use ∝ = 0.02.


would the hypothesis be this:

Ho: μ = 1.75
Hi: μ ≠ 1.75

or something else? like I said... I can do the calculations I just have trouble figuring out what the hypothesis is.
