t test for single mean is given by the formula,


\left|t\right|\ =\ \frac{\overline{x}\ -\ \mu}{\frac{s}{\sqrt{n-1}}}


Where \overline{x} is the sample mean, µ is the population mean, s is the SD and n is the number of observations. 


Plugging in \overline{x} = 153.7, \mu = 146.3

s = 17.2, n = 22 in the above formula we get the calculated t value is \frac{153.7\ -\ 146.3}{\frac{17.2}{\sqrt{21}}}\ =\ \frac{7.4}{\frac{17.2}{4.58}}\ =\ \frac{7.4}{3.75}\ \approx1.97


Tabulated Value = 1.72( at 5% level of significance with 21 degrees of freedom)  as shown in the table below.


Since the Calculated value > Tabulated value, we reject Ho(Null hypothesis).
