A phone battery manufacturer claims that his battery lives are approximately normally distributed with a standard deviation equal to 0.9 years. Suppose a random sample of 10 of these batteries has a standard deviation of 1.2 years. Do you think that the standard deviation is greater than 0.9 years? Use a 0.05 level of significance.
