The confidence interval is nothingless than or equalsmu 1 minus mu 2less than or equals nothing. (Type an integer or decimal rounded to three decimal places as needed.) Interpret the confidence interval. Choose the correct answer below. A. With 10% confidence, the difference between the population mean waiting time between the two banks falls below the lower confidence interval. B. With 90% confidence, the difference between the population mean waiting time between the two banks falls in this interval. C.

With 90% confidence, the difference between the population mean waiting time between the two banks falls outside this interval.

Answer #1

A. Upper H 0: mu 1 equals mu 2 Upper H 1: mu 1 not equals mu 2

T stat = 2.92

B. Reject Upper H 0. There is sufficient evidence that the mean waiting time between the two branches differ

B. It is the probability of obtaining a sample that yields a t test statistic farther away from 0 in the positive direction than the computed test statistic if there is no difference in the mean waiting time between Bank A and Bank B

D. Both sampled populations are approximately normal.

B. With 90% confidence, the difference between the population mean waiting time between the two banks falls in this interval.

A bank calculated the waiting time (to be served) for a random
sample of 18 customers one day. The mean waiting time for the
sample was 3.1 minutes and the standard deviation of the waiting
times was 1.3 minutes. The bank is aiming for wait times less than
4 minutes. For the test with hypotheses H0:μ= 4 vs Ha:μ <4, the
P-value is 0.0046.19.
Part 1: Circle Yes or No if this hypothesis
test is significant at the following levels:...

A bank with branches located in a commercial district of a city
and in a residential area has the business objective of developing
an improved process for serving customers during the noon-to-1
P.M. lunch period. Management decides to first study the waiting
time in the current process. The waiting time is defined as the
number of minutes that elapses from when the customer enters the
line until he or she reaches the teller window. Data are collected
from a random...

4. A bank manager has developed a new system to reduce the time
customers spend waiting for teller service during peak hours. The
manager hopes that the new system will reduce waiting times from
the current 9 to 10 minutes to less than 6 minutes. a. Set up the
null and alternative hypotheses needed if we wish to attempt to
provide evidence supporting the claim that the mean waiting time is
shorter than six minutes. b. The mean and the...

A bank branch located in a commercial district of a city has
developed an improved process for serving customers during the
noon-1:00pm lunch period. The waiting time of all customers during
this hour is recorded over the period of a week. A random sample of
30 customers is selected and their waiting time is recorded (see
data file Bank 1). At the 0.05 level of significance is there
evidence that the population mean waiting time is less than 5
minutes?...
