Topic: Two independent population proportions 1919 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 120. A marketing research company surveyed grocery shoppers in the east and west coasts to
see the percentage of the customers who prefer chicken to other meat. The data are given
below. Determine the 95% confidence interval for the difference between the proportion of
customers who prefer chicken at the West Coast and the proportion of customers who prefer
chicken at the East Coast.

Topic: Two independent population proportions 1920 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 121. Two hospital emergency rooms use different procedures for triage of their patients. We
want to test the claim that the mean waiting time of patients is the same for both hospitals.
The 40 randomly selected subjects from one hospital produce a mean of 18.3 minutes. The 50
randomly selected patients from the other hospital produce a mean of 25.31 minutes. Assume
a σa = 2.1 minutes and σb = 2.92 minutes. Setup the null hypothesis to determine if there is a
difference in the mean waiting time between the two hospitals.
A. µa  µb = 0
B. µa  µb ≠ 0
C. µa  µb > 0
D. µa  µb < 0 AACSB: Reflective Thinking

Topic: Two independent population means 1921 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 123. Two hospital emergency rooms use different procedures for triage of their patients. We
want to test the claim that the mean waiting time of patients is the same for both hospitals.
The 40 randomly selected subjects from one hospital produce a mean of 18.3 minutes. The 50
randomly selected patients from the other hospital produce a mean of 25.31 minutes. Assume
a σa = 2.1 minutes and σb = 2.92 minutes. What do you conclude about the waiting time for
patients in the two hospitals testing at α = .001?
A. There is a significant difference in waiting times
B. There is no significant difference in waiting times

Topic: Two independent population means 124. A test of spelling ability is given to a random sample of 10 students before and after they
completed a spelling course. The mean score before the course was 119.60 and after the
course the mean score was 130.80. The standard deviation of the difference was 16.061.
