Q4

A paint manufacturing company claims that the mean drying time for its paints is not longer than 45 minutes. A random sample of 20 gallons of paints selected from the production line of this company showed that the mean drying time for this sample is 49.50 minutes with a standard deviation of 3 minutes. Assume that the drying times for these paints have a normal distribution. Using the 1% significance level, would you conclude that the company’s claim is true? (10 marks) A researcher estimates that the average height of the buildings of 30 or more stories in a large city is at least 700 feet. A random sample of 10 buildings is selected, and the heights in feet are shown. At α = 0.025, is there enough evidence to reject the claim?
