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?
Since sample size is smaller than 30, we use t-statistics
m=40.6 s= 2.7
null hypothesis: m = 42.3
alternative hypothesis: m<42.3
t-statistics = (40.6-42.3)/(2.7/241/2) = -3.0845 < -t(0.1/2, 23) = -1.738
so reject null hypothesis, that is assembly time using the new method is faster.
