Question

- Pizza companies are competitive in the amount of time it takes
to deliver the pizza. Is there a significant difference in the
average time it takes to deliver a pizza between Pizza Hut and
Dominos? The following data was collected from a sample of
deliveries of both companies; test the hypothesis at a 0.01 level
of significance with 10 degrees of freedom(assume unequal
variances). Pizza Hut: sample mean = 18.68, sample standard
deviation = 1.64, sample size = 5 Dominos: sample mean = 20.23,
sample standard deviation = 2.74, sample size = 7. Find the
corresponding critical value(s) at a 0.01 level of significance.
±2.575 ±2.33 ±2.764 ±3.169

Answer #1

Solution :

df = 9.8~10

= 0.01

/ 2 = 0.01 / 2 = 0.005

t _{0.005,10} =
**3.169**

**Critical value =**
**3.169**

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 delivery company claims that the mean time it takes to deliver
frozen food between two particular cities is 4 hours. A consumer
advocacy group wishes to show at the 5% level that the mean time is
greater than 4 hours. A random sample of 50 deliveries yielded a
sample mean of 4.2 hours with a standard deviation
of 0.5 hours.
1. Set up the null and alternative hypotheses.
2. Compute the test statistic.
3. State the p-value for the...

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 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 carpet company advertises that the average time it takes to
deliver carpet to its customers is less than 15 days. A sample of
80 past customers is taken. The average delivery time in the sample
was 16.1 days. The standard deviation of the population is known to
be 5.6 days. Conduct a hypothesis test analysis to determine
whether there is statistically significant data to show that it
takes longer than 15 days for delivery. What is the p-value?

Could you show me the steps on how this is completed?
A pizza store claims they will deliver your pizza in no more
than 20 minutes. I don’t believe this is true. I found 7 people who
recorded the time it takes for a pizza to get delivered. The
average time was 22.7 minutes with a standard deviation of 4.3
minutes. Perform a hypothesis test assuming the population
distribution is normal using a 0.05 level of significance to see if...

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 40 minutes. The owner
has randomly selected 42 customers and has delivered pizzas to
their homes in order to test if the mean delivery time actually
exceeds 40 minutes. Suppose the P-value for the test was found to
be 0.0281. State...

You wish to estimate the population mean amount of time in hours
it takes to repair a device. You want to be 90% confident that the
sample mean is within 1.25 hours of the population mean. Assume
that the population standard deviation 4.7 hours. What is the
minimum sample size needed?

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)

Suppose that the amount of time a laboratory worker takes to
complete a particular task is approximately distributed with a
known mean of 203 and a known standard deviation of 18. A new
protocol for completing the task has been suggested, that is
believed to reduce the mean time until completion of the task. Use
this information to answer the following. Part (a) (WebWorkiR)
Consider using a significance level of 5%, taking a sample size of
22, and using the...
