Question

The manager of a grocery store has taken a random sample of 100 customers. The average length of time it took the customers in the sample to check out was 4.9 minutes with a sample standard deviation of 0.5 minutes. Conduct a test to determine whether or not the mean waiting time of all customers is significantly more than 5 minutes.

Use a significance level of α = 0.01.

Answer #1

Here we have to test that

n = 100

Sample mean =

Sample standard deviation = s = 0.5

Here population standard deviation is not known so we will use here t test.

Test statistic:

t = -2

**Test statistic = -2**

Degrees of freedom = n - 1 = 99

alpha = 0.01

P value from excel using command:

=T.DIST.RT(2,99)

= 0.0241 (Round to 4 decimal)

**P value = 0.0241**

Here P value = 0.0241 > alpha = 0.01

So we fail to reject null hypothesis H0.

**Conclusion: There is not sufficient evidence to conclude
that the mean waiting time of all customers is significantly more
than 5 minutes.**

The manager of a grocery store has taken a random sample of 100
customers. The average length of time it took the customers in the
sample to check out was 3.1 minutes. The population standard
deviation is known to be 0.5 minute. We want to test to determine
whether or not the mean waiting time of all customers is
significantly more than 3 minutes.
The test statistic is _____.
a. 1.64
b. 2.00
c. 1.96
d. .056

The manager of a grocery store has taken a random sample of 4
customers. The average length of time it took the customers in the
sample to check out was 6 minutes. The population standard
deviation is known to be 0.1 minutes. We want to test to determine
whether or not the mean waiting time of all customers is
significantly more than 7 minutes. Use a significance level of
(alpha = 0.01). Please show work.

The manager of a grocery store has taken a random sample of 100
customers. The average length of time it took the customers in the
sample to check out was 3.1 minutes. The population standard
deviation is known at 0.5 minutes. We want to test to determine
whether or not the mean waiting time of all customers is
significantly different than 3 minutes. Use α = 0.05.

The manager of a grocery store has taken a random sample of 100
customers to determine whether or not the mean waiting time of all
customers is significantly more than 3 minutes. She observes that
the average length of time it took the customers in the sample to
check out was 3.1 minutes. The population standard deviation is
known to be 0.5 minutes.

2. The manager of a grocery store has taken a random sample of
100 customers. The average length of time it took the customers in
the sample to check out was 3.1 minutes. The population mean is 3.5
minutes and the population standard deviation is known to be 0.5
minutes. We would like to know if there is evidence of a change in
average check out time. Explain in the context of this question

The manager of a grocery store has taken a random sample of 196
customers. The average length of time it took these 196 customers
to check out was 3 minutes. It is known that the standard deviation
of the population of checkout times is 1 minute. The margin of
error is 0.140. Find the 95% confidence interval for the true
average checkout time (in minutes).A. 1 to 5B. 2.86 to 3.14 C. 2.883 to 3.117D. 2.990 to 3.010

46.FOR NEXT 3 QUESTIONS USE THE FOLLOWING DIRECTION:
Manager of a grocery store wants to test to determine whether
the mean waiting time of its customers is significantly more than 4
minutes. He takes a random sample of 36 customers and finds that
the average length of time it took the customers in the sample to
check out was 4.6 minutes. A national study estimates that standard
deviation of length of time of grocery store customers is 1.8
minutes.

The population mean waiting time to check out of a supermarket
has historically been 4 minutes. In an effort to reduce the waiting
time, you, as store manager, conducted an experiment with infrared
cameras that use body heat and in-store software to determine how
many lanes should be opened. To test the effectiveness of this
process, you selected a random sample of 100 customers and recorded
their waiting time. For this sample, the mean waiting time to check
out was...

A local grocery store manager was tracking the amount of water
customers purchased during the current pandemic. The store manager
had read an article that stated the mean amount of water purchased
by Americans was 5.7 gallons, but the store manager claims that
customers at the store purchase more than 5.7 gallons of water. To
test this claim, the store manager identified a sample of 25
customers and found that the mean amount of water purchased by the
sample was...
