Figure out the confidence interval or hypothesis
test problem, using a significance level not previously used Make sure that you use appropriate terminology and specify whether you are using the classical method or the p-value method.....
Route 1: Chesterfield VA, Henrico VA, via 195 N with toll attached
Route 2: Chesterfield VA, Henrico VA, via Parham road with no toll.
I wanted to test if Route 1 had a shorter mean travel time than Route 2. I attempted to decide to test this theory, by collecting ten sample commute times from each:
Route 1 Sample Commute Times (all in minutes)
40, 45, 30, 28,32,34,37,42,48,41
Route 2 Sample Commute Times (all in minutes)
The parameters that I am investigating are
µ1= Mean Commute Time for Route 1
µ2= Mean Commute Time for Route 2
Then my hypothesis test would be
H¹: µ1-µ ≤ 0
To test my hypotheses, I would need to plug the data into stat crunch, by putting in the commute times of each route in VAR 1 and VAR 2.
Determine which of these routes, would have a lower commute time.
