We need to hire more people and not pay existing employees overtime during peak demands!)

Solution Preview

The question is, if hiring more employees will eliminate the overtime for current employees during peak and normal harvests?

H0: 10 (new employees) = 0 (overtime)
H1: 10 (new employees) ≠0 (overtime)

Adding 10 employees will eliminate the overtime for current employees.
Adding 10 employees will not eliminate the overtime for current employees.

More time is needed to harvest ...
