Unreasonable because sample is not large enough and population standard deviations are not equal. 10.30 a. H 0 : u1=u2 H a : u1<u2 α = 0.05 S = √(n-1)s 2 +(n-1)s 2 /(n 1 +n 2 )-2 =√(21.4783) = 4.6 T = mean1 – mean2/(S√(1/n + 1/n) = -1.59 Df = 10+15-2 = 23 T=1.71 -1.59>1.71 90% confidence interval = X1-X2+t*S√(1/n +1/n) = -6.24 - .24 10.34 P1: male, n=30, x=37.1 and s=38.5 P2: female, n=30, x=55.8 and s=48.3 α = 0.01 S = √((n-1)S +(n-1)S)/(n1+n2 -2) = 43.68 T = x1-x2/S(√(1/n1)+(1/n2)) = 1.61 df = 10+15-2 = 58 t = -2.390 -1.6139 > -2.390 @ 1 percent significance the data is inconclusive. 10.40
