8. _____ (15 points) The UMUC bookstore states the average textbook costs \$75. A randomly selected sample of 16 new textbooks at the UMUC bookstore had a mean price of \$82.54 and sample standard deviation of \$15.50. Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that the mean price of textbooks at the UMUC bookstore is significantly more than \$75 (use the p-value method). Show your work.

a. Give the symbolic null & alternative hypotheses. Use proper notation.

H0: ______________________ HA: ______________________
