Unformatted text preview: Chapter 11 Inferences About Population Variances Learning Objectives 1. Understand the importance of variance in a decision-making situation. 2 Understand the role of statistical inference in developing conclusions about the variance of a single population. 3. Know that the sampling distribution of ( n- 1) s 2 / 2 has a chi-square distribution and be able to use this result to develop a confidence interval estimate of 2 . 4. Be able to compute p-values using the chi-square distribution. 5. Know how to test hypotheses involving 2 . 6. Understand the role of statistical inference in developing conclusions about two population variances. 7. Know that the sampling distribution of 2 2 1 2 / s s has an F distribution and be able to use this result to test hypotheses involving two population variances. 8. Be able to compute p-values using the F distribution. 11 - 1 Chapter 11 Solutions: 1. a. 11.070 b. 27.488 c. 9.591 d. 23.209 e. 9.390 2. s 2 = 25 a.
