The difference in the average volumes of Memphis and Louisville airports is almost 55% of average volume of Memphis airport. C. Develop a 95% confidence interval of the difference between the daily population means for the two airports. 17 . P eriodically, Merrill Lynch customers are asked to evaluate Merrill Lynch financial consultants and services (2000 Merrill Lynch Client Satisfaction Survey). 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.

whether the consultant with more experience has the higher population mean service rating. Consultant A n1=16 xbar1= 6.82 s1=0.64 Consultant B n1=10 xbar1= 6.25 s1=0.75 a. State the null and alternative hypothesis. Ho: μA = μB Ha: μA > μB b. Compute the value of the test statistic. t-statistic = 1.992 c. What is the p-value? p-value = P(t > 1.992) = 0.031 d. What is your conclusion? Since the p-value is < 0.05, Reject Ho. There is significant evidence that the consultant with more experience has the higher population mean service rating. 13.
