    A taxi company manager is trying to decide if the use of radial tires instead of regular belted tires improves fuel economy. As a test, twelve cars are equipped with belted tires and the cars are driven over a prescribed test course. Without changing drivers the same cars were then equipped with the radial tires and driven once again over the test course. The gasoline consumption in kilometers/liter is recorded in the attachment.

    Can we conclude that the radial tires improve fuel economy (i.e. higher kilometers/liter)? Assume the fuel data is from normally distributed populations. State your hypotheses and use the P-value in your conclusion.
