*z*-test

returns
a test decision for the null hypothesis that the data in the vector `h`

= ztest(`x`

,`m`

,`sigma`

)`x`

comes
from a normal distribution with mean `m`

and a
standard deviation `sigma`

, using the *z*-test.
The alternative hypothesis is that the mean is not `m`

.
The result `h`

is `1`

if the test
rejects the null hypothesis at the 5% significance level, and `0`

otherwise.

)*z*-test with additional
options specified by one or more name-value pair arguments. For example,
you can change the significance level or conduct a one-sided test.
