(12 pts) A company is satisfied with the performance of the Accounts Receivable division of their company, if bills to customers are paid within 4 calendar weeks of the date of mailing. In order to measure perfomance, a random sample of 15 bills is sampled from a large number of customer billings. The time till the receipt of payment is shown below. Determine if this data indicates whether or not the Accounts Receivble division is Days till Bill was paid. 26 26 28 24 23 27 29 30 29 33 31 26 25 30 28 mean = 27.67 stdev = 2.74 Using the template from file "onesam.xls": Template for Confidence Interval Sample Sample Sample Mean SD n alpha Enter ===> 27.67 2.74 15 0.05 Confidence Interval is 26.15 to 29.19 Since 28 days is included in the confidence interval, we accept the Null Hypothesis (i.e. functioning satisfactorily. (Use = .05). . the department is functioning satisfactorily). 2. (12 pts) An auditor would like to determine the average cost per day of business trips taken by company employees to within five dollars. Based on past data, the standard deviation of the average cost per day on business trips is approximately thirty dollars.

(12 pts) An automobile dealership knows from experience that most people will want to test drive a car before buying it. Accordingly their goal is get half of the serious sales prospects to test drive a vehicle when they visit the dealership.
