A group of investors wants to develop a chain of fast-food restaurants. In determining potential costs
for each facility, they must consider, among other expenses, the average monthly electric bill. They
decide to sample some fast-food restaurants currently operating to estimate the monthly cost of
electricity. They want to be 90% conﬁdent of their results and want the error of the interval estimate to
be no more than $100. They estimate that such bills range from $600 to $2,500. How large a sample
should they take?

for your part of the United States by randomly calling gasoline stations. Your random survey of 25
stations produces the following prices (all in $). Assume gasoline prices for a region are normally
distributed. Do the data you obtained provide enough evidence to reject the claim? Use a 1% level of
