Hypothesis Testing for Ford Motor Taurus; Random sample of 300 beer drinkers

Ford Motor Company wishes to estimate the mean dollar amount of damage done to a new model Taurus as a result of a 10 mph crash into the rear bumper of a parked car. 36 Tauruses are test crashed into parked cars and the dollar amount of damage done to each is recorded. The results are: a. Does the sample data provide evid

Test Airport baggage scanning machine claims of 580 bags per hour

The manufacturer of an airport baggage scanning machine claims it can handle an average of 580 bags per hour. At alpha (?) = .01, would a sample of 18 randomly chosen hours with a mean of 525 and a standard deviation of 45 support the manufacturer's claim? Do both by hand and with Excel.
