Too much TV? A father is concerned that his teenage son is watching too much television each day, since his son watches an average of 2 hours per day. His son says that his TV habits are no different than those of his friends. Since this father has taken a stats class, he knows that he can actually test to see whether or not his son is watching more TV than his peers. The father collects a random sample of television watching times from boys at his son's high school and gets the following data:

1.9    2.3    2.2    1.9    1.6    2.6    1.4    2.0    2.0    2.2

Is the father right? That is, is there evidence that other boys average less than 2 hours of television per day? Conduct a hypothesis test, making sure to state your conclusions in the context of the problem.
