Question 847:Grand Strand Family Medical Center is specifically set up to treat minor medical emergencies
for visitors to the Myrtle Beach area. There are two facilities, one in the Little River Area and the other in Murrells Inlet. The Quality Assurance Department wishes to compare the mean waiting time for patients at the two locations. Samples of the waiting
times, reported in minutes, follow:
Location Waiting Time
Little River 31.73 28.77 29.53 22.08 29.47 18.60 32.94 25.18 29.82 26.49
Murrells Inlet 22.93 23.92 26.92 27.20 26.44 25.62 30.61 29.44 23.09 23.10 26.69 22.31
Assume the population standard deviations are not the same. At the .05 significance level,
is there a difference in the mean waiting time?
