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. Be able to develop interval estimates and conduct hypothesis tests about the difference between two population proportions. 6. Know the properties of the sampling distribution of 1 2 p p .

Percentage reduction: 6/172 = 3.5%. Management should be encouraged by the fact that steps taken in 2003 reduced the population mean duration of baseball games. However, the statistical analysis shows that the reduction in the mean duration is only 3.5%. The interval estimate shows the reduction in the population mean is 1.5 minutes (.9%) to 10.5 minutes (6.1%). Additional data reduction in the population mean is 1....
