Unformatted text preview: AMS312 Spring_ 2010 April 19th Chapter 7 (Section 7.5): Two-sample problems: Review: Inference on two population means, paired samples: the paired differences follow a normal distribution Example 1. Do fraternities help or hurt your academic progress at college? To investigate this question, 5 students who joined fraternities in 1998 were randomly selected. It was shown that their GPA before and after they joined the fraternities are as follows. Please test the hypothesis at =0.05 Student 1 2 3 4 5 Before 3 4 3 3 2 After 2 3 3 2 1 Diff. 1 1 1 1 Solution: : : = d a d H H Assumption : the difference follows a normal distribution. 05 . , 5 , 447 . , 8 . = = = = n S X d d Test statistic : 1 ~-- = n H d d t n S X T 4,0.025 4.02 2.776 T t = = We reject H at =0.05 and conclude fraternities does hurt Review: Inference on two population means, independent samples: Pooled variance t-test: Both samples are from normal populations. Furthermore, 2 2 2 1 2 = = (we can test this using the F-test), population variances are unknown but equal.
