Expert Answer

Step 1

Note:

Hey there! Thank you for the question. As you have posted a question with several sub-parts, as per our policy, we have solved the first 3 parts for you. If you need help with the other parts, please re-post the question and mention the parts.

Step 2

(a)

Denote μ as the true length of flight delays, in minutes. The claim by the airport is “no more than a minute” on an average, that is, no more than 60 minutes of delay.

The null hypothesis would state that the delay is no more than 60 minutes, that is, at most 60 minutes. Thus, the null hypothesis is:

H0: μ ≤ 60.

Step 3

(b)

The alternative claim is that the true average delay is of more than 60 minutes. So, the alternative hypothesis is:

H1: μ > ...
