Excel exercise 1, page 114: The Macburger restaurant chain claims that the mean waiting time of customers for service is normally distributed with a mean of 3 minutes and a standard deviation of 1 minute. The quality- assurance department found in a sample of 50 customers at the Warren Road MacBurger that the mean waiting time was 2.75 minutes. At the .05 significance level, can we say that the mean waiting time is less than 3 minutes? (a left-tailed test)

ex1,p114 Page 2 Conclusion Reject Ho p-value 0.0385 Null hypothesis: The population mean waiting time equals three minutes. (H 0 : m = 3) Alternative hypothesis: The population mean is less than three minutes. (H a : m < 3) -- "left tailed" There is enough evidence to support the conclusion that the mean waiting time is less than 3 minutes. The result we have observed (Sample mean =2.75 minutes) would occur fewer than 4 times in one hundred samples of this size if the null hypothesis were true. The p-value (0.0385) is the probability that the null hypothesis would be rejected if it were true. As the p-value is smaller than alpha, we will reject the null hypothesis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
