The daily charges, in dollars, for a sample of 15 hotels and motels operating in South Carolina are provided on the WeissStats CD. The data were found in the report
South Carolina Statistical Abstract, sponsored by the South Carolina Budget and Control Board.
a. Use the one-mean z-test to decide, at the 5% significance level, whether the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean daily charge for hotels and motels operating in South Carolina is less than $75. Assume a population standard deviation of $22.40.
b. Obtain a normal probability plot, boxplot, histogram, and stem-and-leaf diagram of the data.
c. Remove the outliers (if any) from the data and then repeat part (a).
d. Comment on the advisability of using the z-test here.
