Question

A traffic engineer recently found that the average morning commute time from Los Lunas to Albuquerque was 30 minutes. A previous study conducted in 1990 found the same average morning commute time to be 22 minutes. Does the difference of eight minutes prove that the average morning commute really is longer? Explain.

Answer #1

**Here' the answer. Please don't hesitate to give a
"thumbs up" in case you're satisfied with the answer**

Mean = 30 min

Previous mean = 22 min

Is the difference of 8 minutes prove commute really is longer ? We can't say a yes or no. It really is dependent on the standard deviation, which if very large means that the value of mean of 22 minutes may vary hugely and therefore may have number of instances where time taken was above 30 minutes. Hence, the difference of 8 minutes can't prove that the average morning commute really is longer, until we get the standard deviation of morning commute time.

Los Angeles workers have an average commute of 30 minutes.
Suppose the LA commute time is normally distributed with a standard
deviation of 12 minutes. Let X represent the commute time for a
randomly selected LA worker. Round all answers to 4 decimal places
where possible.
a. What is the distribution of X? X ~ N(,)
b. Find the probability that a randomly selected LA worker has a
commute that is longer than 35 minutes.
c. Find the 90th percentile...

From a national perspective, it was
reported that students living off-campus took an average of 32.0
minutes to travel to school. A recent study of 25 randomly chosen
students living off-campus here at Humber College took an average
of 34.5 minutes with a standard deviation of 3.0 minutes.
a. With this sample
data and the assumption that the distribution of travel times
follow a normal distribution, develop the 98% confidence interval
for the average time it takes for students here...

On average, commuters in Phoenix, Arizona, area require m= 40.0
minutes to get to work. Assume that for all commuters the times to
get to work are normally distributed with the standard deviation of
s= 10 minutes. Joe is an average Phoenix resident and goes to work
every day.
What is the probability that on any given day it will take Joe
over 45 minutes to get to work?
What is the probability that it will take Joe exactly 40.0...

1. A city official claims that the proportion of all commuters
who are in favor of an expanded public transportation system is
50%. A newspaper conducts a survey to determine whether this
proportion is different from 50%. Out of 225 randomly chosen
commuters, the survey finds that 90 of them reply yes when asked if
they support an expanded public transportation system. Test the
official’s claim at α = 0.05.
