Two independent random samples of 100 batteries of each kind are selected, and the batteries are run continuously until they are no longer operational. The sample average life for Duracell is found to be ̅ = 308 minutes. The result for the Energizer batteries is ̅ = 254 minutes. Assume = 84 minutes and = 67 minutes. Is there evidence to substantiate Duracell’s claim that its batteries last, on average, at least 45 minutes longer than Energizer batteries of the same size? Duracell batteries (1) = 100 ̅ =...
