What is an experiment?
A hospital conducted a study of the waiting time in its emergency room. The hospital has a main campus and three satellite locations. Management had a business objective of reducing waiting time for emergency room cases that did not require immediate attention. To study this, a random sample of 15 emergency room cases that did not require immediate attention at each location was selected on a particular day, and the waiting times (measured from check into when the patient was called into the clinic area) were collected and stored in the table. At the 0.05 level of significance, is there evidence of a difference in the mean waiting times in the four locations?

According to a certain government agency for a large country, the proportion of fatal traffic accidents in the country in which the driver had a positive blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.36. Suppose a random sample of 110 traffic fatalities in a certain region results in 49 that involved a positive BAC. Does the sample evidence suggest that the region has a higher proportion of traffic fatalities involving a positive BAC than the country at the α=0.05 level of significance?
