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 conclude that the mean waiting time is less than 3 minutes?A) State the null hypothesis and the alternate hypothesis.Answer:Hoµ ≥ 3 MinutesH1µ < 3 MinutesB) State the decision rule.Answer: Reject Ho if Z< 1.65C)Answer: Z= X - µ = 1.767 found by: 3.0 - 2.75 = 1.767σ / √n 1 / √50D) Answer: Ho is rejected.E) What is the p-value? Interpret itAnswer: We can conclude that the mean waiting time is less than 3 minutes at the .05 significance level. If H0 is were to be true, there would be no chance in getting a statistic this small.Chapter 12 Exercise 30There are four auto body shops in a community and all claim to promptly serve customers.To check if there is any difference in service, customers are randomly selected from each repair shop and their waiting times in days are recorded.
