Sec 9.2 Comparing two population means: independent sampling Example (Large samples) Several neurosurgeons wanted to see whether a dynamic system reduces the operative time relative to a static system. They collected the data on operative times and the summarized information, in minutes, from the data were Dynamic Static 6 . 394 1 = x 3 . 468 2 = x s 1 = 84.7 s 2 = 38.2 n 1 = 64 n 2 = 36 (a) Obtain a 98% confidence interval for the difference between the mean operative times of the dynamic and static systems. (b) At 1% significance level, do the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean operative time is less with the dynamic system than with the static system? (c) Find the p-value of the test in (b).
