1. In a random sample of 60 computers, the mean repair cost is $150 with a standard deviation of $36. Construct a 99% confidence interval for the population mean.

5. The Metropolitan Bus Company claims that the mean waiting time for a bus during rush hour is less than 7 minutes. A random sample of 20 waiting times has a mean of 5.6 minutes with a standard deviation of 2.1 minutes. If mean wait times are normally distributed, test the bus company’s claim at alpha=.01.
6. A local group claims that the police issue at least 60 speeding tickets a day in their area. To prove their point they randomly selected two weeks. Their research yields the numbers of tickets issued for each day. The data are listed below. At alpha= .01, test the group’s claim. 70 48 41 68 69 55 70 57 60 83 32 60 72 58
