Management 5006 Statistics Handout Hypothesis Testing Procedures for the Difference of two Population Means Hypothesis Testing Procedures for the Difference of two Population means (When σ 1 and σ 2 are known). Two-Tail Hypothesis Test Procedure Upper-Tail Hypothesis Test Procedure Lower-Tail Hypothesis Test Procedure 1. H 0 : μ 1 = μ 2 or μ 1 - μ 2 = 0 1. H 0 : μ 1 = μ 2 or μ 1 - μ 2 = 0 1. H 0 : μ 1 = μ 2 or μ 1 - μ 2 = 0 2. H 1 : μ 1 μ 2 or μ 1 - μ 2 0 2. H 1 : μ 1 > μ 2 or μ 1 - μ 2 > 0 2. H 1 : μ 1 < μ 2 or μ 1 - μ 2 < 0 3. α = .05, alpha could be any value. 3. α = .05, alpha could be any value. 3. α = .05, alpha could be any value. 4. α/2 = .025 4. not applicable 4. not applicable 5.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
