1)
Find the sample mean and sample standard deviation using Minitab using descriptive statistics.
2)
The store manager found that the average growth rate in 80s was 6.00%. Using the data, prove
if the average growth rate for the sample period was same as that of 80s.
3)
Prove if the average growth rate was less than 6

Step 1

1).

The sample mean and standard deviation can be obtained using Minitab is as follows:

Step-by-step procedure to obtain the sample mean and standard deviation is given below:

• Choose Stat > Basic Statistics > Display Descriptive Statistics.
• In Variables enter the columns Variable as Sales.
• Click OK.
Step 2

The output obtained using Minitab is represented as follows:

From the above output, the sample mean and standard deviation are 5.35 and 0.82 respectively.

Step 3

2).

The null and alternative hypotheses are stated below:

Null hypothesis: The sample average growth rate is same as that of 80&rs...
