The environmental protection agency releases figures on urban air

The Environmental Protection Agency releases figures on urban air soot in selected cities in the
United States. For the city of St Louis, the EPA claims that the average number of micrograms suspended particles per cubic meter of air is 82. Suppose St Louis officials have been working with business, commuters, and industries to reduce this figure. These city officials hire an environmental company to take random measures of air soot over a period of several weeks. The resulting data follow. Use these data to determine whether the urban air soot in St Louis is significantly lower than it was when the EPA conducted its measurements, assuming you want to take only 3% risk of committing a Type I error.
