Lesson 10: Hypothesis Testing for Comparing Two Means, ࠵? ࠵? and ࠵? ࠵? In previous lesson we introduced the concept of hypothesis testing via tests for one mean ࠵? . What if we want to compare two independent population means ࠵? ! and ࠵? ! ? Just like we extended the confidence interval from one mean to the confidence interval for difference in two means, now we are going extend the hypothesis testing for comparing two means ࠵? ! and ࠵? ! . Just like in the hypothesis testing for one mean ࠵? , hypothesis tests for two means also could either be two-tailed, right tail or left tail test. We used the sampling distribution of ࠵? to get the test statistic for hypothesis tests for ࠵? . Now, we are going to use the sampling distribution of ࠵? ! ࠵? ! to get the test statistic for hypothesis test for ࠵? ! ࠵? ! Depending on your alternative hypothesis (two-tailed, left or right tail), calculation of the rejection region and the p-value is different.

### 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.
