# Question: The Transportation Security Administration would like to compare the average

The Transportation Security Administration would like to compare the average amount of time it takes passengers to pass through airport security at Philadelphia versus Orlando during peak times. A random sample of 25 travelers in Philadelphia spent an average of 14.6 minutes to pass through airport security with a sample standard deviation of 5.8 minutes. A random sample of 27 travelers in Orlando spent an average of 11.5 minutes to pass through airport security with a sample standard deviation of 4.9 minutes.
a. Perform a hypothesis test using α = 0.05 to determine if the average time to pass through security in Philadelphia is more than the average time to pass through security in Orlando. Assume the population variances for time through security at these two locations are equal.
b. Approximate the p value using Table 5 in Appendix A and interpret the results.
c. Determine the precise p value using Excel.
d. Verify your results using PHStat.
e. What assumptions need to be made in order to perform this procedure?
