Construct the indicated confidence interval for the difference between the two population means. Assume that the two samples are independent simple random samples selected from normally distributed populations. Do not assume that the population standard deviations are equal. A researcher was interested in comparing the resting pulse rates of people who exercise regularly and the pulse rates of people who do not exercise regularly. She obtained independent simple random samples of 16 people who do not exercise regularly and 12 people who do exercise regularly. The resting pulse rates (in beats per minute) were recorded and the summary statistics are as follows. 1T17Construct a 95% confidence interval for mu1 – mu2, the difference between the mean pulse rate of people who do not exercise regularly and the mean pulse rate of people who exercise regularly.

Question 18

  1.  

State what the given confidence interval suggests about the two population means. A researcher was interested in comparing the heights of women in two different countries. Independent simple random samples of 9 women from country A and 9 women from country B yielded the following heights (in inches). 1T18The following 90% confidence interval was obtained for mu1 – mu2, the difference between the mean height of women in country A and the mean height of women in country B.-4.34 in. < mu1 – mu2 < -0.03 in What does the confidence interval suggest about the population means?

Answer

   

The confidence interval includes only negative values which suggests that the mean height of women from country A is greater than the mean height of women from country B.

   

The confidence interval includes only negative values which suggests that the two population means might be equal. There doesn’t appear to be a significant difference between the mean height of women from country A and the mean height of women from country B.

   

The confidence interval includes only negative values which suggests that the mean height of women from country A is smaller than the mean height of women from country B.

   

The confidence interval includes 0 which suggests that the two population means might be equal. There doesn’t appear to be a significant difference between the mean height of women from country A and the mean height of women from country B.

Question 19

  1.  

Construct the indicated confidence interval for the difference between the two population means. Assume that the two samples are independent simple random samples selected from normally distributed populations. Also assume that the population standard deviations are equal (sigma1 = sigma2), so that the standard error of the difference between means is obtained by pooling the sample variances. A paint manufacturer wanted to compare the drying times of two different types of paint. Independent simple random samples of 11 cans of type A and 9 cans of type B were selected and applied to similar surfaces. The drying times, in hours, were recorded. The summary statistics are as follows. 1T19Construct a 99% confidence interval for mu1 – mu2, the difference between the mean drying time for paint type A and the mean drying time for paint type B.
