Step 1

The given expression is 34:16. Note that, 34represents three fourth and16 represents one sixth. Draw the fraction bars for 34and16 as follows. 34=141414...
16=16...............

Step 2

Recall that, the rule for dividing fractions that, “When dividing fractions, take the reciprocal of the second fraction, then multiply. That implies, 34:16=34×61
=184
=92 or 412 So, the answer for the given expressionusing fractionbars can be drawn as follows. 141414...
34616=412 or 4+12111112
16...............

The article “Modeling of Urban Area Stop-andGo Traffic Noise” presents measurements of traffic noise, in dBA, from 10 locations in Bangkok, Thailand. Measurements, presented in the following table, were made at each location, in both the acceleration and deceleration lanes.
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline \text{Location} & \text{Acceleration} & \text{Decelaration} \\ \hline 1 & 78.1 & 78.6 \\ \hline 2 & 78.1 & 80.0 \\ \hline 3 & 79.6 & 79.3 \\ \hline 4 & 81.0 & 79.1 \\ \hline 5 & 78.7 & 78.2 \\ \hline 6 & 78.1 & 78.0 \\ \hline 7 & 78.6 & 78.6 \\ \hline 8 & 78.5 & 78.8 \\ \hline 9 & 78.4 & 78.0 \\ \hline 10 & 79.6 & 78.4 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
Can you conclude that there is a difference in the mean noise levels between acceleration and deceleration lanes?
