The owner of a local chain of grocery stores is always trying to minimize the time it takes her customers to check out. In the past, she has conducted many studies of the checkout times, and they have displayed a normal distribution with a mean time of 12 minutes and a standard deviation of 2.3 minutes. She has implemented a new schedule for cashiers in hopes of reducing the mean checkout time. A random sample of 28 customers visiting her store this week resulted in a mean of 10.9 minutes. Does she have sufficient evidence to claim the mean checkout time this week was less than 12 minutes? Use a = 0.02
