An SRS of 16 Orange County Schools' juniors had a mean SAT MATH of x = 500; and a Standard Deviation of s=100. We know that the population of SAT Math scores for juniors in the district is approximately normaly distributed. We wish to determine a 90% confidence interval for the mean SAT math score mu for the population of all juniors in the district.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question: 1. For the SAT MATH Data above, find the power of the test against the alternative mu=500 at the 5percent significance level. Assume that Sigma=100.

How do I find the alternative? I know power... mu = 500... what is 5% significance level mean?
