1) A psychologist is interested in knowing whether adults who were bullied as children differ from the general population in terms of their empathy for others. On a problemnaire designed to measure empathy, the mean score for the general population is 30.6. Random sampling of 70 scores obtained from individuals who were bullied yielded a mean of 39.5 and a standard deviation of 6.6. (Use these numbers only for this problem!)

Test at the .05 level of significance.

Summarize the data into the appropriate test statistic.

What are the degrees of freedom? (numeric value only)
