(20 points) 9.6.3 Solution Let population A denote the crystals that are measured at the 80 ◦ level and let population B denote the crystals that are measured at the 150 ◦ level. Our null hypothesis is H : μ A = μ B , and we can use the method of paired samples as n = m = 35 . Therefore, we'll test the equivalent null hypothesis H : μ = 0 where μ = μ A- μ B . (a) The t-statistic for this experiement is t = √ 35 (10 . 07- 0) 8 . 26 = 7 . 21 The p-value is 2 Pr ( X ≥ 7 . 21) where X ∼ t 34 , which is less that...
