The current no-smoking regulations in office buildings require workers who smoke to take breaks and leave the building in order to satisfy their habits. A study indicates that such workers average 32 minutes per day taking smoking breaks. The standard deviation is 8 minutes.
To help reduce the average break, rooms with powerful exhausts were installed in the buildings. To see whether these rooms serve their designed purpose, a random sample of 110 smokers was taken. The total amount of time away from their desks was measured for 1 day. Test to determine whether there has been a decrease in the mean time away from their desks. Compute the p-value and interpret it relative to the costs of Type I and Type II errors.
