8. By stopwatch method, the completion time for a particular task in an assembly line is measured
for a sample of 40 workers. The results are summarized below. The production manager has
determined that a median completion time of 3.75 minutes or less is acceptable. He would
however pull out workers for further training if the median time is found to be greater than 3.75
minutes. Will training be necessary?
