A large buyer of household batteries wants to decide which of two equally priced brands to purchase. To do this he takes a random sample of 100 batteries of each brand. The lifetimes measures in hours, of the batteries are recorded in the attached file.
a. Using the given sample data, generate a 95% confidence interval for the difference between the mean lifetimes of brand 1 and brand 2 batteries. Based on this confidence interval, which brand should the buyer purchase?
b. Using the given sample data, generate a 99% confidence interval for the difference in the mean lifetimes of brand 1 and brand 2 batteries. Based on this interval, which brand should the buyer purchase?
c. How can your analysis in parts A and B be related to hypothesis testing?
