$3.00$2.00Question : Last month the waiting time at the drive through window of a fastfood restaurant was 3.7 minutes. The franchise has installed a new process intended to reduce waiting time. After the installation, a random sample of 64 orders is selected. The sample mean waiting time is 3.57 minutes with a sample standard deviation of 0.8 minutes. At a 5% level of significance, is there sufficient evidence that the population mean waiting time is now less than 3.7 minutes? What is your conclusion?

A recent issue of AARP Bulletin reported that the average weekly pay for a woman with a high school diploma
$4.00$3.00Question : Hypothesis Testing
A recent issue of AARP Bulletin reported that the average weekly pay for a woman with a high school diploma was $520. Suppose you would like to determine if the average weekly pay for all working women is significantly greater than that for women with a high school diploma. Data providing the weekly pay for a sample of 50 working women are available in the Excel file (Weekly Pay). Formulate the null and alternative hypotheses and conduct the appropriate test. What is your conclusion?

Congress regulates corporate fuel economy and sets an annual gas mileage for cars.
$3.00$2.00Question: Congress regulates corporate fuel economy and sets an annual gas mileage for cars. A company with a large fleet of cars hopes to meet the goal of 30.4 mpg or better for their fleet of cars. To see if the goal is beingmet, they check the gasoline usage for 46 company trips chosen at random, finding a mean of 31.4 mpg and a standard deviation of 2.57 mpg. Is this strong evidence that they have attained their fuel economy goal? Use 0.05 as the level of significance. pValue = 0.006. State an appropriate conclusion. Choose the correct answer below.

The life in hours of an electronic sensor is known to be approximately Normally distributed
$3.00$2.00Question:
The life in hours of an electronic sensor is known to be approximately Normally distributed, with population standard deviation = hours. A random sample of 10 sensors resulted in the following data: 500,550,560,575,525,505,510,540,550,545.
 Is there evidence to support the claim that mean life exceeds 520 hours? Use a fixedlevel test with alpha = 0.05.
 What is the Pvalue of this test? Conclude the same of part (a)?
 What is the Betavalue for this test if the true mean life is 535 hours?
 What sample size would be required to ensure that Beta does not exceed 0.10 if the true mean life is 540 hours?
 Construct a 95% onesided lower CI on the mean life.
 Use the CI found in part e) to test the hypothesis.
