15. FlightStats, Inc., collects data on the number of flights scheduled and the number of flights flown at major airports throughout the United States. FlightStats data showed 56% of flights scheduled at Newark, La Guardia, and Kennedy airports were flown during a three-day snowstorm (The Wall Street Journal,February 21, 2006). All airlines say they always operate within set safety parameters-if conditions are too poor, they don't fly. The following data show a sample of 400 scheduled flights during the snowstorm.

Airline
Did It Fly? American Continental Delta United Total
Yes 48 69 68 25 210
No 52 41 62 35 190

Use the chi-square test of independence with a .05 level of significance to analyze the data. What is your conclusion? Do you have a preference for which airline you would choose to fly during similar snowstorm conditions? Explain.

11. Four different paints are advertised as having the same drying time. To check the manufacturer's claims, five samples were tested for each of the paints. The time in minutes until the paint was dry enough for a second coat to be applied was recorded. The following data were obtained.

Paint 1 Paint 2 Paint 3 Paint 4
128 144 133 150
137 133 143 142
135 142 137 135
124 146 136 140
141 130 131 153

At the .05 level of significance, test to see whether the mean drying time is the same for each type of paint.
