Slide 13 Example 2: Specific Motors s 95% Confidence Interval Estimate of the Difference Between Two Population Means: Small­Sample Case 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.
