# Hypothesis Testing - Which Condition is More Important

Hello,

I have a question where the sample is n=25, However, the question provides the population mean and the standard deviation.

After several hypothesis questions, part b asks:

Your test in part (a) required two important assumptions in addition to the assumption that the value of is known.
What are they?

I stated:

1 – That a random sample is selected from the target population.
2 – That the distribution of the population is approximately normal. If N>-30, due to the CLT this condition guarantees that the distribution of the population is approximately normal. In this case we are given the population mean and σ.

Which of these assumptions is most important to the validity of your conclusion in part (a)
