Unformatted text preview: 11.2 Inferences About Two Means, Independent Samples 1) Two sample Z test (comparison of two means) When testing if two population means are equal ( 1 = 2 ) we use the two sample Z statistic: Z = 2 2 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 ) ( ) ( n n x x +--- note: both 1 and 2 are known Note: 1- 2 is the hypothesized difference between the means, which is assumed to be zero for the TI 2-sample Z test. This statistic has a standard normal distribution. TI: 2-SampZTest PHStat: Two sample test for the mean both 1 and 2 known Example: 1 x = 84 2 x = 91 n 1 = 16 n 2 = 16 1 = 8 2 = 4 test: Ho: 1 = 2 Ha: 1 < 2 = .05 The above values yield a z = -3.1305 ( 1 x- 2 x ) And a pval = 0.000873 2) Two Sample t test For the two sample t we use the statistic: t = 2 2 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 ) ( ) ( n s n s x x +--- This will have the standard t distribution if 1 = 2 Example: 1 x = 84 2 x = 91 n 1 = 16 n 2 = 16 s 1 = 8 s 2 = 4 test: Ho: 1 = 2 Ha: 1 < 2 = .05 TI: 2-SamptTest...
