Question

A national grocer’s magazine reports the typical shopper spends
eight minutes in line waiting to check

out. A sample of 24 shoppers at the local Farmer Jack’s showed a
mean of 7.5 minutes with a standard

deviation of 3.2 minutes. Is it reasonable to conclude that the
waiting time at the local Farmer Jack’s is

less than that reported in the national magazine? Use the 0.05
significance level.

Use the information above to solve the following questions:

a. What is the null hypothesis statement for this problem?

b. What is the alternative hypothesis statement for this
problem?

c. What is alpha for this analysis?

d. What is the most appropriate test statistic for this problem
(choose one of the following)

• T

• Z

e. What is the value of the test statistic for the most appropriate
analysis?

f. What is the lower bound value of the critical statistic? If one
does not exist (i.e. is not applicable

for this type analysis), document N/A as your response.

g. What is the upper bound value of the critical statistic? If one
does not exist (i.e. is not applicable

for this type analysis), document N/A as your response.

h. Is it reasonable to conclude that the waiting time at the local
Farmer Jack’s is less than that

reported in the national magazine? (choose one of the
following)

• Yes

• No

i. What is the p-value for this analysis?

Answer #1

NULL HYPOTHESIS H0: MINUTES

ALTERNATIVE HYPOTHESIS Ha: MINUTES

LEVEL OF SIGNIFICANCE

T is the most appropriates test statistic because population standard deviation is known.

test statistic t= xbar-mu/s/sqrt(n)

t= 7.5-8/3.2/sqrt(24)

t= -0.5/3.2/4.90

t= -0.76563

f) Degrees of freedom= 24-1=23

Critical value of t= -1.71

g) NA

h) Since Critical value SMALLER THAN THE CALCULATED VALUE FOR LEFT TAILED TEST THEREFORE NOT SIGNIFICANT.

DECISION: DO NOT REJECT NULL HYPOTHESIS H0.

NO. It is NOT reasonable to conclude that the waiting time at
the local Farmer Jack’s is less than that

reported in the national magazine.

i) The *p*-value is **0.224568.**

Start with the Excel spreadsheet Insurance Company
An insurance company, based on past experience, estimates the
mean damage for a natural disaster in its area is $5,000. After
introducing several plans to prevent loss, it randomly samples 200
policyholders and finds the mean about per claim was $4,800 with a
standard deviation of $1,300. Does it appear that prevention plans
were effective in reducing the mean amount of a claim? Use a 0.05
significance level. Use this information to determine...

A local retailer claims that the mean waiting time is less than
7 minutes. A random sample of 20 waiting times has a mean of 5.5
minutes with a standard deviation of 2.1 minutes. At α = 0.01, test
the retailer's claim. Assume the distribution is normally
distributed. Round the test statistic to the nearest
thousandth.
a) State the Null and Alternate Hypotheses.
b) Is this a left, right or two-tailed test?
c) Find the sample test statistic.
d) Use...

A large national survey shows that the waiting times for fast
food restaurants is approximately normally distributed with a mean
of μ = 4.2 minutes and a standard deviation of σ = 0.9 minutes. A
fast food company claims that their mean waiting time in line is
less than 4.2 minutes. To test the claim, a random sample of 95
customers is selected, and is found to have a mean of 3.7 minutes.
We will use this sample data to...

Debates have been ongoing if a traditional classroom settings
provide a more effective way to deliver educational content over
more modern alternatives such as online or hybrid online course
offerings. In order to shed light on this debate an experiment was
conducted over a fifteen-week period. In total, 90 students were
randomly separated into 3 different courses. In other words, 30
students were in a traditional classroom for a semester, 30 were
asked to take the course in a hybrid...

A paper included analysis of data from a national sample of
1,000 Americans. One question on the survey is given below.
"You owe $3,000 on your credit card. You pay a minimum payment
of $30 each month. At an Annual Percentage Rate of 12% (or 1% per
month), how many years would it take to eliminate your credit card
debt if you made no additional charges?"
Answer options for this question were: (a) less than 5 years;
(b) between 5...

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.
2. A survey of 225 randomly chosen commuters are asked...
