The management of White Industries is considering a new method of assembling its golf cart. The present method requires 42.3 minutes, on the average, to assemble a cart. The mean assembly time for a random sample of 24 carts, using the new method, was 40.6 minutes, and the standard deviation of the sample was 2.7 minutes. Using the .10 level of significance, can we conclude that the assembly time using the new method is faster?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 3, 2020, 8:45 pm ad1c9bdddf
We can set up
Null hypothesis H0: mu=42.3
Alternative hypothesis Ha: mu<42.3
Given xbar=40.6, s=2.7 and n=24. Use t-test, we ...
