Question: 2 luke is on the track and field team and...

Question details

2) Luke is on the Track and Field team and Angeline is on the weightlifting team at their community college. Luke can run a mile in 248 seconds, the mean mile time on the team is 273 seconds with a standard deviation of 15 seconds. Angeline can lift (dead lift) 335 lbs, whereas the team can lift a mean of 315 lbs and varies with a standard deviation of 9.9 lbs. Luke and Angeline are trying to decide who is a better athlete when compared to the other athletes on their team. In weightlifting the goal is to lift more, but when a running a mile you want a smaller/faster time. Decide who the better athlete is and support with statistical analysis (hint: use z-scores).
