We will make the following assumptions:
• The miles per gallon rating must be normally distributed for both the M car and the J car.
• The variance in the miles per gallon rating must be the same for both the M car and the J car.
Using the t distribution with n1 + n2 2 = 18 degrees
of freedom, the appropriate t value is t.025 = 2.101.
We will use a weighted average of the two sample
variances as the pooled estimator of σ 2. Slide 15 Example: Specific Motors

s s
s With a matchedsample design each sampled item provides a pair of data values.
The matchedsample design can be referred to as blocking.
This design often leads to a smaller sampling error than the independentsample design because variation between sampled items is eliminated as a source of sampling error. Slide 28 Example: Express Deliveries
s Inference About the Difference Between the Means of Two Populations: Matched Samples A Chicagobased firm has documents that must be quickly distributed to district offices throughout the U.S. The firm must decide between two delivery services, UPX (United Parcel Express) and INTEX (International Express), to transport its documents. In testing the delivery times of the two services, the firm sent two reports to a random sample of ten district offices with one report carried by UPX and the other report carried by INTEX.
Do the data that follow indicate a difference in mean delivery times for the two services? Slide 29 Example: Express Deliveries

With α = .05, t.025 = 2.262 (9 degrees of freedom). Reject H0 if t < 2.262 or if t > 2.262 Slide 31 Example: Express Deliveries
