    Suppose that the medical staff indicates that the results of a given laboratory procedure must be available 30 minutes after the physician submits a request for the service. In this situation, if the results arrived 30 minutes or less after the request, we regard the performance of the laboratory as timely. If results arrived more than 30 minutes after the request, we regard the performance as tardy. Focusing on the day, evening, and night shifts, suppose that we selected a random sample and obtained the following results:

    Shift
    Performance Day Evening Night
    Timely 100 80 40
    Tardy 20 30 40

    If 0.05, use these results to test the proposition that the performance of the laboratory is independent of shift. After finding standard deviation and mean, give a brief analysis of the description of the data set.
