Thus: Since all Xi’s are normally distributed independent random variables with mean it turns out is also normally distributed, with mean and variance . and variance , Following the above, has a normal distribution with mean and variance . Again, we standard by subtracting its mean and dividing it by its variance, yielding 2. a) vs. Since b) , 5% significance we do not reject vs. Since c) , 10% significance we reject vs. Since at the 5% level. at the 10% level. , 5% significance we reject at the 5% level. d) Test the equality of variances at =0.8391, Since Therefore, the above assumption is reasonable. significance level. , we do not reject the hypothesis of equal variances.
