    2. The Greasy Spoon Restaurant has an automatic hamburger patty machine, a new addition to their kitchen intended to save time, effort and money. The manufacture had designed the machine so each patty weighs 4 ounces. To test the equipment, 32 hamburgers were prepared and found to have a mean weight of 4.2 ounces and a standard deviation of 0.6 ounces. Test at alpha=0.1, the restaurant's claim that the machine always dispenses more than 4 ounces and so they should raise the burger prices.
