# Chi square

A manufacturer of phone batteries claims that his batteries' lives are approximately normally distributed with a standard deviation equal to 0.9 years. If 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 0.05 level of significance
