), we need to minimize . 24 n A + . 24 n B . This is 0.163 for choice (1) and 0.107 for choice (2). Choice (2) has smaller width. (b) By looking at the expression above, the CI width is minimized when 1 n A + 1 n B is as small as possible with n A + n B = 100. Based on part(a), the width is smaller for the values of n A and n B that are closer together. Thus the ’natural’ conjecture is that the CI width can be minimized if n A = n B = 50. This is the correct answer. It is primarily for this reason that most scientific studies comparing 2 (or more) groups have equal sample sizes.
