What can be concluded at the the αα = 0.10 level of significance level of significance?

- For this study, we should use Select an answer z-test for a population proportion t-test for a population mean
- The null and alternative hypotheses would be:

H0:H0: ? μ p Select an answer ≠ < > =

H1:H1: ? p μ Select an answer ≠ < = >

- The test statistic ? z t = (please show your answer to 3 decimal places.)
- The p-value = (Please show your answer to 4 decimal places.)
- The p-value is ? ≤ > αα
- Based on this, we should Select an answer reject fail to reject accept the null hypothesis.
- Thus, the final conclusion is that ...
- The data suggest that the population mean wait time for men who
wear a tie is not
**significantly**more than 10 at αα = 0.10, so there is statistically insignificant evidence to conclude that the population mean wait time for men who wear a tie is more than 10. - The data suggest the population mean is not
**significantly**more than 10 at αα = 0.10, so there is statistically insignificant evidence to conclude that the population mean wait time for men who wear a tie is equal to 10. - The data suggest the populaton mean is
**significantly**more than 10 at αα = 0.10, so there is statistically significant evidence to conclude that the population mean wait time for men who wear a tie is more than 10.

- The data suggest that the population mean wait time for men who
wear a tie is not
