Problem #2 (20 Points) 13

A two-mile section of a rural, two-lane, two-way highway has a posted speed of 45 mph.

The Traffic Engineer in-charge of this highway is interested in studying the speed

characteristics of vehicles using this section of highway. A spot speed study was

conducted at a location where traffic flow was thought to be characteristics of the entire

two-mile section. The Traffic Engineer started tabulating the statistics of this study,

however, he stopped short of completing the whole process. The following is the

frequency table.

Problem #3 (20 Points) f

A traffic engineer is attempting to learn whether there are speed differences associated

with different days of the week for the same spot location. One set of data obtained for a

typical week indicates that a sample of 21 speeds obtained on a Wednesday had a mean

value of 32.0 MPH k d a variance of 26.9. A second sample of 27 speeds taken Friday,

indicated a mean value of 36.7 MPH and a variance of 29.1. If it is assumed that the

speeds are sampled fiom normal populations with the s k e variance, are the populations

equal at the 5 percent level of significance?' ,

coefficient of hction equal to 0.50, and a level roadway, calculate the speed at impact.
