There is inadequate evidence to conclude the two population means are different. 9.3 p value = 2(1.0 0.9582) = 0.0836 9.4 (a) 2 2 2 2 2 1 1 2 2 1 2 ( 1) ( 1) (7) 4 (14) 5 ( 1) ( 1) 7 14 p n S n S S n n + + = = + + = 22 1 2 1 2 2 1 2 ( ) ( ) (42 34) 0 3.8959 1 1 1 1 22 8 15 p X X t S n n  = = = + + (b) df = ( n 1 1) + ( n 2 1) = 7 + 14 = 21 (c) Decision rule: df = 21.

There is enough evidence to conclude that the first population mean is larger than the second population mean. (e) We are sampling from two independent normal distributions having equal variances.

There is not enough evidence to conclude that light bulbs produced by machine 1 have a different average life expectancy from light bulbs produced by machine 2. (b) p value = 2(1.0 0.6517) = 0.6966 The probability of obtaining samples whose means differ by 13 hours or more when the null hypothesis is true is 0.6966. 9.6 (a) H : 1 2 where Populations: 1 = new machine, 2 = old machine The average breaking strength of parts produced by the new machine is not greater than the average breaking strength of parts produced by the old machine.
