Unformatted text preview: Chapter 10 Comparisons Involving Means Learning Objectives 1. Be able to develop interval estimates and conduct hypothesis tests about the difference between two population means when 1 σ and 2 σ are known. 2. Know the properties of the sampling distribution of 1 2 x x . 3. Be able to use the t distribution to conduct statistical inferences about the difference between two population means when 1 σ and 2 σ are unknown. 4. Learn how to analyze the difference between two population means when the samples are independent and when the samples are matched. 5. Understand the principles of experimental design. 6. Be able to analyze a completely randomized design. 7. Understand how the analysis of variance procedure can be used to determine if the means of more than two populations are equal. 8. Know the assumptions necessary to use the analysis of variance procedure. 9. Understand the use of the F distribution in performing the analysis of variance procedure. 10. Know how to set up an ANOVA table and interpret the entries in the table. 11. Be able to use output from computer software packages to solve analysis of variance problems.
