The number of cell phone users has increased dramatically since 1987. According to the Semi-annual Wireless Survey, published by the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association, the mean local monthly bill for cell phone users in the United States was $49.94 in 2007. Last year's local monthly bills, in dollars, for a random sample of 75 cell phone users are given on the WeissStats CD. Use the technology of your choice to do the following.
a. Obtain a normal probability plot, boxplot, histogram, and stem-and-leaf diagram of the data.
b. At the 5% significance level, do the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that last year's mean local monthly bill for cell phone users decreased from the 2007 mean of $49.94? Assume that the population standard deviation of last year's local monthly bills for cell phone users is $25.
c. Remove the two outliers from the data and repeat parts (a) and (b).
d. State your conclusions regarding the hypothesis test.
