2 Confidence Interval for the Difference between Two Population Means µ 1 - µ 2 Assume X 1 and X 2 are independent populations; we have two samples drawn from X 1 and X 2 with sizes n 1 and n 2 respectively. § Interval Estimation with Large-Sample Size (for both n 1 and n 2 ) A ( 29 % 100 1 a - Confidence Interval for 2 1 m m - is 2 2 2 1 2 1 2 2 1 n n z X X s s a + ± - . Note: When 2 i s is unknown, use 2 i s instead. § Interval Estimation with Small-Sample Size and Unknown 2 i s (either one or both n i are small) Assumptions: - both populations of X 1 and X 2 are normal - common population variance, 2 2 2 2 1 s s s = = A ( 29 % 100 1 a - Confidence Interval for 2 1 m m - is 2 1 2 ; 2 2 1 1 1 2 1 n n s t X X p n n + ± - - + a . where s p is the pooled estimated standard deviation calculated as follows, ( 29 ( 29 2 1 1 2 1 2 2 2 2 1 1 - + - + - = n n s n s n s p Confidence Interval for Binomial Proportion p § For large sample size n A ( 29 % 100 1 a - Confidence Interval for p is n pq z p 2 ˆ a ±
