# SFU Stat Normal Distributions Questions

The Six StepsStep 1
Null Hypothesis
Alternative Hypothesis
H0 :
HA :
Step 2
The t-statistic:
x!µ
t-statistic = p
s/ n
Since the histogram suggests that the data are normally distributed, the t
statistic has a Student-t distribution. Critical value can be obtained from
the Student t-table.
Step 3
! = 0.05

Step 4 Decision Rule.
Reject H0 if t < !t!,n!1 = !t0.05,50!1 = !1.676 (use d.f. = 50). Step 5 Value of the test statistic: (i) Solving by hand. From the histogram, x̄ = 11.744 and s = 2.042. Thus t = x!µ ps n = 11.744 ! 12 2.042 p 50 = !0.886 66 (ii) Using the computer. EViews Commands. To carry out the t-test, click on the View button, then choose Descriptive Statistics & tests / Simple Hypothesis Tests. Type in the value of "12" in the edit box next to the Mean. 67 68 69 EViews Output The EViews output also shows that t = !0.886. 70 Step 6. Since t = !0.886 > !t0.05,50!1 = !1.676, we fail to reject H0.
There is (evidence, not enough evidence) to claim that the owner’s claim —
that the average waiting time is less than its advertised time of 12 minutes
— is true.
