You are strongly encouraged to work in groups to ensure you collect adequate data.
This assignment is worth 10% and must be uploaded to the Assignment 2 Turnitin link by 23/09/2018 .
Data Collection
You will need to be mindful of a few issues. I’m sure you will discover more during the course of the investigation.
? What is an adequate sample size?
? How will you devise a way to randomly sample items?
? What price will you use?
? How will you ensure that products are matched between stores?

2. Load Data and Packages [R Chunk]: Report your R code used to load your data and the packages required to reproduce the report. (Not assessed)
3. Summary Statistics [R Chunk]: Use R to summarise the measurement variables from the investigation. Include an appropriate plot to help visualise the data. Describe the trend.
4. Hypothesis Test [R Chunk] : Use R to perform an appropriate hypothesis test to determine which supermarket is the cheapest. You need to explain your choice of hypothesis test, any assumptions and the significance level.
5. Interpretation [Plain text]: Interpret the results of the hypothesis test by stating its hypotheses, considering assumptions, interpreting the p-value and confidence intervals and commenting on the statistical significance of the findings.
