    finding p value




    Here's what is given:
    SE of .1
    Average mean: 5.4 ft (100 penguins tested)
    significance level: 5% (0.05)

    find p-value and testis there is evidence that the average height of penguins is greater than 5 feet?

    Heres what i did:

    test stat: (5.4-5)/.1 = 4
    p - value: Used calculator and got: 1 or 0 which both seem very very incorrect even if one of them were right.

    What am i doing wrong?

    The p-value is close to zero with that data, so the calculator may express it as exactly zero.
