Breyers is a major producer of ice cream and would like to test the hypothesis that the average American consumes more than 17 ounces if ice cream per month. A random sample of 15 Americans was found to consume an average of 18.2 ounces of ice cream last month. The standard deviation for this sample was 3.9 ounces. Breyers would like to set α = 0.10. The conclusion for this hypothesis test would be that because the test statistic is ________________________________.

▸ more than the critical value, we can conclude that the average amount of ice cream consumed per month is not greater than 17 ounces

▸ more than the critical value, we can conclude that the average amount of ice cream consumed per month is greater than 17 ounces

▸ less than the critical value, we can conclude that the average amount of ice cream consumed per month is greater than 17 ounces

▸ less than the critical value, we cannot conclude that the average amount of ice cream consumed per month is greater than 17 ounces
