Question

A
pizza delivery chain advertises that it will deliver your pizza 25
minutes from when the order is placed. A random sample of 13
customers recorded the time it took for their pizzas to be
delivered and found that the mean time was 27.2 minutes, with a
standard deviation of 4.3 minutes. Assume the population of
delivery times is normally distributed and test the claim that the
mean pizza delivery time is 25 minutes using a 5% level of
significance.

a: state hypotheses

b: verify conditions that hold

c: calculate test statistic

d: calculate the p value

Answer #1

Solution :

= 25

=27.2

S =4.3

n = 13

This is the two tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H_{0} : =
25

H_{a} :
25

Test statistic = t

= ( - ) / S / n

= (27.2-25) / 4.3 / 13

= 1.845

Test statistic = t = 1.845

P-value = 0.0899

= 0.05

P-value >

0.0899 > 0.05

Fail to reject the null hypothesis .

There is not sufficient evidence to claim that the population mean μ is different than 25, at the 0.05 significance level.

Domino’s Pizza in Big Rapids, Michigan, advertises that they
will deliver your pizza in less than 15 minutes of placing an order
or it is free. A sample of 25 customers is selected at random. The
average delivery time in the sample was 14 minutes with a sample
standard deviation of 4 minutes. Test to determine if we can infer
at the 5% significance level that the Domino’s claim is
correct.

A local pizza place claims that they average a delivery time of
7.32 minutes. To test this claim, you order 11 pizzas over the next
month at random times on random days of the week. You calculate the
average delivery time and sample standard deviation from the 11
delivery times (minutes), and with the sample mean and sample
standard deviation of the time (minutes), you create a 95%
confidence interval of (7.648, 9.992). (delivery time is normally
distributed)

A local eat-in pizza restaurant wants to investigate the
possibility of starting to deliver pizzas. The owner of the store
has determined that home delivery will be successful only if the
average time spent on a delivery does not exceed 31 minutes. The
owner has randomly selected 15 customers and delivered pizzas to
their homes in order to test whether the mean delivery time
actually exceeds 31 minutes. The average delivery time was 32
minutes with a standard deviation of...

A local pizza restaurant located close to a college campus
advertises that their delivery time to a college dormitory is less
than for a local branch of a national pizza chain. In order to
determine whether this advertisement is valid, you and some friends
have decided to order 10 pizzas from the local pizza restaurant and
10 pizzas from the national chain, all at different times.
The delivery times in minutes are shown in the following table

has determined that home delivery will be successful only if the
average time spent on a delivery does not exceed 40 minutes. The
owner has randomly selected 17 customers and delivered pizzas to
their homes in order to test whether the mean delivery time
actually exceeds 40 minutes. Suppose the p-value for the test was
found to be .0270. State...

A local eat-in pizza restaurant wants to investigate the
possibility of starting to deliver pizzas. The owner of the store
has determined that home delivery will be successful if the average
time spent on the deliveries does not exceed 33 minutes. The owner
has randomly selected 21 customers and has delivered pizzas to
their homes in order to test if the mean delivery time actually
exceeds 33 minutes. Suppose the P-value for the test was found to
be 0.0270. State...

possibility of starting to deliver pizzas. The owner of the store
has determined that home delivery will be successful if the average
time spent on the deliveries does not exceed 38 minutes. The owner

Question 4
You have recorded the minutes it takes for the delivery of
your pizza during the last 10 Fridays, and the times are: {39, 28,
20, 27, 36, 37, 23, 35, 43, 42}.
State first any assumptions and then calculate a 95%
confidence interval of the population mean of delivery time.
