Fonts and reading ease Does the use of fancy type fonts slow down the reading of text on a computer screen? Adults can read four paragraphs of text in the common Times New Roman font in an average time of $22$ seconds. Researchers asked a random sample of $24$ adults to read this text in the omate font named Gigi. Here are their times, in seconds:

23.2 | 21.2 | 28.9 | 27.7 | 29.1 | 27.3 | 16.1 | 22.6 | 25.6 | 34.2 | 23.9 | 26.8 |

20.5 | 34.3 | 21.4 | 32.6 | 26.2 | 34.1 | 31.5 | 24.6 | 23.0 | 28.6 | 24.4 | 28.1 |

Do these data provide good evidence that the mean reading time for Gigi is greater than $22$seconds? Carry out an appropriate test to help you answer this question.

- Use a confidence interval to draw a conclusion for a two-sided test about a population mean.

Yes, there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean reading time for Gigi is more than $22$ seconds,

Given in the question that,

23.2 | 21.2 | 28.9 | 27.7 | 29.1 | 27.3 | 16.1 | 22.6 | 25.6 | 34.2 | 23.9 | 26.8 |

20.5 | 34.3 | 21.4 | 32.6 | 26.2 | 34.1 | 31.5 | 24.6 | 23 | 28.6 | 24.4 | 28.1 |

we have to find out that Do these data provide good evidence that the mean reading time for Gigi is greater than $22$seconds.

The formula used to compute the test statistic is:

$t=\frac{\overline{x}-\mu}{\frac{s}{\sqrt{n}}}$

The null and alternative hypothesis are:

${H}_{0}:\mu =22$

${H}_{\alpha}:\mu >22$

Assume level of significance to be $0.05$

the obtained output is:

The significance level is less than the$p-value(0.000)$ in this case. As a result, the null hypothesis is ruled out. As a result, there is enough information to indicate that Gigi's average reading time is greater than $22$ seconds.
