Question Description

To date, you have staunchly avoided placing any advertisements on your website. However, with revenues declining, you are considering relenting on this position. Before making a full commitment, you decide to try to determine whether the presence of ads has any negative impacts on your sales. Therefore, you make a deal with an advertiser to show a 10-second pop-up ad (that pops up and plays when the site is first visited and then becomes a banner ad on the page) intermittently over a period of one month. Suppose you’ve decided to show the ad during business hours (9:00 a.m.– 5:00 p.m.), and not show the ad any other time during the month.
