## Homework Statement

Analyzing 1000 events (each event is one radioactive decay of an unknown sample), we notice that the time between two consecutive events is larger than 1 second in 30% of the cases while in 5% it is longer than 2 seconds. Can we, at 5% risk level deny the hypothesis, that the characteristic decay time is 1 second long?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I really don't know how to begin here. I really don't. I do assume that I will have to use either Student distribution or Chi-squared distribution. But I have no idea how to start and what to do :/

Please help!
