Question

A city planner working on bikeways designs a questionnaire to obtain information about local bicycle commuters. One of the questions asks how long it takes the rider to pedal from home to his or her destination. A sample of local bicycle commuters yields the following times, in minutes.
a. Find a 90% confidence interval for the mean commuting time of all local bicycle commuters in the city. (Note: The sample mean and sample standard deviation of the data are 25.82 minutes and 7.71 minutes, respectively.)
b. Interpret your result in part (a).
c. Graphical analyses of the data indicate that the time of 48 minutes may be an outlier. Remove this potential outlier and repeat part (a). (Note: The sample mean and sample standard deviation of the abridged data are 24.76 and 6.05, respectively.)
d. Should you have used the procedure that you did in part (a)? Explain your answer.
