b) Yes, since the 95% confidence interval did not contain the value 0, we would conclude the mean active concentration depends on the choice of catalyst. 5-12. 1) The parameter of interest is the difference in mean active concentration, μ μ 1 2 - 2) H 0 : μ μ 1 2 0 - = or μ μ 1 2 = 3) H 1 : μ μ 1 2 0 - or μ μ 1 2 4) α = 0.05 5) The test statistic is z x x n n 0 1 2 0 1 2 1 2 2 2 = - - + ( ) σ σ 6) Reject H 0 if z 0 < - z α /2 = - 1.96 or z 0 > z α /2 = 1.96 7) x 1 = 63.56 x 2 = 67.81 δ = 0 σ 1 = 3 σ 2 = 3 n 1 = 10 n 2 = 10 0 2 2 (63.56 67.81) 0 3.17 (3) (3) 10 10 z - - = = - + 8) Since - 3.17 < - 1.96 reject the null hypothesis and conclude the mean active concentrations do differ significantly at α = 0.05. P-value = 2(1 (3.17)) 2(1 0.99924) 0.00152 = - = The conclusions reached by the confidence interval of problem 5-10 and the test of hypothesis conducted here are the same. A two-sided confidence interval can be thought of as representing the “acceptance region” of a hypothesis test, given that the level of significance is the same for both procedures. Thus if the value δ falls outside the confidence interval, it is the same result as rejecting the null
