**Question description**

According to a 2009 study published in the Journal of Urban Economics, the average commuting distance of all community college students is approximately 5 miles each way; however, I believe __the average commute exceeds than 5 miles for HCC SouthShore students__. 20 statistics students at the HCC – SouthShore campus were surveyed. The average commuting distance for this sample was 10 miles each way with a standard deviation of 8 miles. Is there sufficient evidence (at α = 0.05) that the average commuting distance of all HCC SouthShore campus students is more than 5 miles?
