Tom Sevits is the owner of the Appliance Patch. Recently Tom observed a difference in the dollar value of sales between the men and women he employs as sales associates. A sample of 40 days revealed the men sold a mean of $1,400 worth of appliances per day with a standard deviation of $200. For a sample of 50 days, the women sold a mean of $1,500 worth of appliances per day with a standard deviation of $250. At the . 05 significance level can Mr. Sevits conclude that the mean amount sold per day is larger for the women? 2. Of 150 adults who tried a new peach-flavored peppermint patty, 87 rated it excellent. Of 200 children sampled, 123 rated it excellent.
