The administrator at your local hospital states that on weekends the average wait time for emergency room visits is 11 minutes. Based on discussions you have had with friends who have complained about how long they wait to be seen in the ER over a weekend, you dispute the administrator’s claim. You decide to test your hypothesis. Over the course of a few weekends, you record the wait time for 28 randomly selected patients. The average wait time for these selected patients is 12 minutes with a standard deviation of 2.5 minutes. Do you have enough evidence to support your hypothesis that the average ER wait time is longer than 11 minutes? Conduct your test with a 5% level of significance.​
