Round your answer to one decimal place. 42.5 – 22.3 = 20.2 =20.2 Interpret this value in terms of the annual cost of attending private and public colleges. $20,200 c.

8) . Periodically, Merrill Lynch customers are asked to evaluate Merrill Lynch financial consultants and services. Higher ratings on the client satisfaction survey indicate better service with 7 the maximum service rating. Independent samples of service ratings for two financial consultants are summarized here.

9) Bank of America's Consumer Spending Survey collected data on annual credit card charges in seven different categories of expenditures: transportation, groceries, dining out, household expenses, home furnishings, apparel, and entertainment. Using data from a sample of 42 credit card accounts, assume that each account was used to identify the annual credit card charges for groceries (population 1) and the annual credit card charges for dining out (population 2). Using the difference data, the sample mean difference was = $850, and the sample standard deviation was = $1123. a. Formulate the null and alternative hypotheses to test for no difference between the population mean credit card charges for groceries and the population mean credit card charges for dining out. : - Select your answer -mu is greater than 0mu is greater than or equal to 0mu is equal to 0mu is not equal to 0mu is less than 0mu is less than or equal to 0Item 1 : - Select your answer -mu is greater than 0mu is greater than or equal to 0mu is equal to 0mu is not equal to 0mu is less than 0mu is less than or equal to 0Item 2 b. Use a .05 level of significance. Can you conclude that the population means differ? DIFFER
