Chapter 10 Statistical Inference about Means and Proportions with Two Populations Outline: Estimation of the difference between means of two populations: 1. Point estimator of the difference between the means of the populations. 2. Sampling distribution of the point estimator. 3. Interval estimate of μ 1 2 : Large Sample Case. 4. Interval estimate of μ 1 2 : Small Sample Case. Hypothesis tests about the difference between the means of two populations: Independent Samples. Inferences about the difference of means: Matched Samples. Point Estimator for μ 1 2 1. Select a simple random sample of size n 1 from population 1 and compute . 2. Select a simple random sample of size n 2 from population 2 and compute . 3. Compute the point estimator: .

Sampling Distribution of : Expected Value of: The point estimator of the difference of means () is Standard Deviation of: (Aside) An easier way to remember is that where σ 1 = standard deviation of population 1 σ 2 = standard deviation of population 2 n 1 = sample size from population 1 n 2 = sample size from population 2 Interval Estimate of μ 1 2 : Large Sample (n 1 > 30 and n 2 > 30) σ 1 known and σ 2 known
where 1- α is the confidence coefficient σ 1 unknown and σ 2 unknown where

Example: Par, Inc. Par, Inc. is a manufacturer of golf equipment and has developed a new golf ball to provide extra distance . In a test of the driving distance using a mechanical device, a sample of golf balls was compared with a sample of golf balls from a competitor (Rap, Ltd.) Sample Statistics Sample #1 Sample #2 Par, Inc. Rap, Ltd . Sample Size n 1 = 120 balls n 2 = 80 balls Mean = 235 yards = 218 yards Standard Dev. s 1 = 15 yards s 2 = 20 yards Point Estimate of the difference between the populations, where μ 1 is the mean driving distance of golf balls from Par, Inc.;
