A hospital conducted a study of the waiting time in its emergency room. The hospital has a main campus and three satellite locations. Management had a business objective of reducing waiting time for emergency room cases that did not require immediate attention. To study this, a random sample of 15 emergency room cases that did not require immediate attention at each location were selected on a particular day, and the waiting time (measured from check-in to when the patient was called into the clinic area) was measured. The results are stored in ERWAITING

a. At the 0.05 level of significance, is there evidence of a difference in the mean waiting times in the four locations?
b. If appropriate, determine which locations differ in mean waiting time.
c. At the 0.05 level of significance, is there evidence of a difference in the variation in waiting time among the four locations?

The owner of a restaurant serving Continental-style entrées has the business objective of learning more about the patterns of patron demand during the Friday-to-Sunday weekend time period. Data were collected from 630 customers on the type of entrée ordered and the type of dessert ordered and organized into the following table:

USA Today reported on when the decision of what to have for dinner is made. Suppose the results were based on a survey of 1,000 respondents and considered whether the household included any children under 18 years old. The results are cross-classified in the following table:

At the 0.05 level of significance, is there evidence of a significant relationship between when the decision is made of what to have for dinner and the type of household?

Starbucks Coffee Co. uses a data-based approach to improving the quality and customer satisfaction of its products. When survey data indicated that Starbucks needed to improve its package sealing process, an experiment was conducted (data extracted from L. Johnson and S. Burrows, “For Starbucks, It’s In the Bag,” Quality Progress, March 2011, pp. 17–23) to determine the factors in the bag-sealing equipment that might be affecting the ease of opening the bag without tearing the inner liner of the bag. One factor that could affect the rating of the ability of the bag to resist tears was the plate gap on the bag sealing equipment. Data was collected on 19 bags in which the plate gap was varied. The results are stored in STARBUCKS.

a.    Construct a scatter plot.
b.    Assuming a linear relationship, use the least-squares method to determine the regression coefficients b0 and b1.
c.    Interpret the meaning of the slope, b1,  in this problem.
d.    Predict the tear rating when the plate gap is equal to 0.
