# The management of a taxi cab company is trying to decide if they should switch from biastires to radial tires to improve fuel economy. Each of 10 taxis was equipped with one of thetwo tire types and driven on a test course. Without changing drivers, tires were thenswitched to the other tire type and the test course was repeated. The fuel economy (in mpg)for the 10 cars is as follows:CarRadialBias32.127.1236.131.5332.330.4429.526.934.329.931.928.733.430.234.631.835.233.61032.729.9Because switching tires on the taxi fleet is expensive, management does not want toswitch unless a hypothesis test provides strong evidence that the mileage will beimproved. State the appropriate null and alternate hypotheses, and find the P-value.A cost-benefit analysis shows that it will be profitable to switch to radial tires if themean mileage improvement is greater than 2 mpg. State the appropriate null andalternate hypotheses, and find the P-value, for a hypothesis test that is designed to forma.b.the basis for the decision whether to switch.
