Question

Suppose you are a civil engineer, specializing in traffic volume control for the City of Grand Rapids. Your department has been receiving a multitude of complaints about traffic wait times for a certain intersection in the heart of downtown. To see if these claims are valid, you want to monitor the true average wait time at that intersection. Over the course of a few months, you record the average number of minutes a car waits at the intersection between 4:00 PM and 5:00 PM. With a sample size of 9 cars, the average wait time is 8.271 minutes with a standard deviation of 1.5558 minutes. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the true average wait time for a car at the intersection between 4:00 PM and 5:00 PM. Question 3 options: 1) ( -7.075 , 9.467 ) 2) ( 7.098 , 9.444 ) 3) ( 7.075 , 9.467 ) 4) ( 7.752 , 8.79 ) 5) ( 5.965 , 10.577 )

PART I
Internet speeds are a heavily advertised selling point of
Internet Service Providers. You notice that although you are paying
for a certain speed, the true speed seems to vary depending on
where you are in your house. In order to estimate the true average
speed you are getting in your house, you go to 12 random spots
around your house and record the speed (in MBs per second) shown
from a test at 'www.speedtest.net'. You see that the...

You own a small storefront retail business and are interested in
determining the average amount of money a typical customer spends
per visit to your store. You take a random sample over the course
of a month for 45 customers and find that the average dollar amount
spent per transaction per customer is $90.422 with a standard
deviation of $13.895. When creating a 90% confidence interval for
the true average dollar amount spend per customer, what is the
margin of...

You work on a traffic management team for the city. There has
been a proposal to add a new lane to a road near a busy
intersection. As part of the research into whether or not to build
the new lane, the team would like to know how many cars, on
average, pass through this intersection at peak hour each day (5 pm
to 6 pm). Your colleague has developed the hypothesis that the
population mean is 887. You intend...

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) collects data
on wait time at each of its airport security checkpoints. For
flights departing from Terminal 9 at John F. Kennedy International
Airport (JFK) between 3:00 and 4:00 PM on Wednesday, the mean wait
time is 10 minutes, and the maximum wait time is 18 minutes.

Based on your recommendations, Mr. Miller improved shop
operations and successfully reduced the number of customer
complaints. To maintain good service, Mr. Miller asked you to keep
monitoring the wait times of oil change customers
at the shop.
First, you decide to create an x-bar chart to
monitor the central tendency (i.e., mean). But you know that we
sometimes overlook a problem if we use only an x-bar chart.
Therefore, you decide to create an R-chart to
monitor the process...

PLEASE ANSWER ALL question
Suppose you are the manager of Speedy Oil Change which claims
that it will change the oil in customers’ cars in less than 30
minutes on average. Further suppose that several complaints have
been filed from customers stating that their oil change took longer
than 30 minutes. Upper-level management at Speedy Oil Change
headquarters has requested that you investigate the complaints. To
begin your investigation, you randomly audit 36 oil changes
performed by Speedy Oil Change...
