Write a brief document that describes your problem and how you intend to obtain the data.  In Week 5, you will write a paper that describes the results of performing this hypothesis test.

You may obtain your own data (highly recommended) or you can make use of a published data set that is found in the text, online, or found with StatDisk or Stat Crunch. Be sure that if you do, you will be able to meet all the expectations of the Project Assignment.
