We are 95% confident that the difference between the mean driving distances of Par, Inc. balls and Rap, Ltd. balls lies in the interval of 11.86 to 22.14 yards.**Using Excel to Develop an Interval Estimate**of m1 – m2: Large-Sample Case • Formula Worksheet Note: Rows 16-121 are not shown.**Using Excel to Develop an Interval Estimate**of m1 – m2: Large-Sample Case • Value Worksheet Note: Rows 16-121 are not shown.**Interval Estimate of 1 - 2:Small-Sample Case (n1 < 30**and/or n2 < 30) • Interval Estimate with 2 Assumed Known where:**Interval Estimate of 1 - 2:Small-Sample Case (n1 < 30**and/or n2 < 30) • Interval Estimate with 1 and 2 Estimated by s1 and s2 where:**Example: Specific Motors**Specific Motors of Detroit has developed a new automobile known as the M car. 12 M cars and 8 J cars (from Japan) were road tested to compare miles-per- gallon (mpg) performance. The sample statistics are: Sample #1 Sample #2 M CarsJ Cars Sample Size n1 = 12 cars n2 = 8 cars Mean = 29.8 mpg = 27.3 mpg Standard Deviation s1 = 2.56 mpg s2 = 1.81 mpg**Example: Specific Motors**• Point Estimate of the Difference Between Two Population Means 1 = mean miles-per-gallon for the population of M cars 2 = mean miles-per-gallon for the population of J cars Point estimate of 1 - 2 = = 29.8 - 27.3 = 2.5 mpg.**Example: Specific Motors**• 95% Confidence Interval Estimate of the Difference Between Two Population Means: Small-Sample Case We will make the following assumptions: • The miles per gallon rating must be normally distributed for both the M car and the J car. • The variance in the miles per gallon rating must be the same for both the M car and the J car. Using the t distribution with n1 + n2 - 2 = 18 degrees of freedom, the appropriate t value is t.025 = 2.101. We will use a weighted average of the two sample variances as the pooled estimator of 2.**Example: Specific Motors**• 95% Confidence Interval Estimate of the Difference Between Two Population Means: Small-Sample Case = 2.5 + 2.2 or .3 to 4.7 miles per gallon. We are 95% confident that the difference between the mean mpg ratings of the two car types is from 0.3 to 4.7 mpg (with the M car having the higher mpg).**Using Excel to Develop an Interval Estimate**of m1 – m2: Small-Sample Case • Formula Worksheet**Using Excel to Develop an Interval Estimate**of m1 – m2: Small-Sample Case • Value Worksheet**Hypothesis Tests about the Differencebetween the Means of**Two Populations: Independent Samples • Hypotheses H0: 1 - 2< 0 H0: 1 - 2> 0 H0: 1 - 2 = 0 Ha: 1 - 2 > 0 Ha: 1 - 2 < 0 Ha: 1 - 2 0 • Test Statistic Large-Sample Small-Sample**Example: Par, Inc.**• Hypothesis Tests About the Difference Between the Means of Two Populations: Large-Sample Case Par, Inc. is a manufacturer of golf equipment and has developed a new golf ball that has been designed to provide “extra distance.” In a test of driving distance using a mechanical driving device, a sample of Par golf balls was compared with a sample of golf balls made by Rap, Ltd., a competitor.

In testing the delivery times of the two services, the firm sent two reports to a random sample of ten district offices with one report carried by UPX and the other report carried by INTEX. Do the data that follow indicate a difference in mean delivery times for the two services?**Example: Express Deliveries**Delivery Time (Hours) District OfficeUPXINTEXDifference Seattle 32 25 7 Los Angeles 30 24 6 Boston 19 15 4 Cleveland 16 15 1 New York 15 13 2 Houston 18 15 3 Atlanta 14 15 -1 St. Louis 10 8 2 Milwaukee 7 9 -2 Denver 16 11 5**Example: Express Deliveries**• Inference about the Difference between the Means of Two Populations: Matched Samples Let d = the mean of the difference values for the two delivery services for the population of district offices • HypothesesH0: d = 0, Ha: d • Rejection Rule Assuming the population of difference values is approximately normally distributed, the t distribution with n - 1 degrees of freedom applies.

Reject H0 if t < -2.262 or if t > 2.262**Example: Express Deliveries**• Inference about the Difference between the Means of Two Populations: Matched Samples • ConclusionReject H0.

Before the new campaign began, a telephone survey of 150 households in the test market area showed 60 households “aware” of the client’s product. The new campaign has been initiated with TV and newspaper advertisements running for three weeks. A survey conducted immediately after the new campaign showed 120 of 250 households “aware” of the client’s product. Does the data support the position that the advertising campaign has provided an increased awareness of the client’s product?**Example: MRA**• Point Estimator of the Difference between the Proportions of Two Populations p1 = proportion of the population of households “aware” of the product after the new campaign p2 = proportion of the population of households “aware” of the product before the new campaign = sample proportion of households “aware” of the product after the new campaign = sample proportion of households “aware” of the product before the new campaign**Example: MRA**• Interval Estimate of p1 - p2: Large-Sample Case For = .05, z.025 = 1.96: .08 + 1.96(.0510) .08 + .10 or -.02 to +.18 • Conclusion At a 95% confidence level, the interval estimate of the difference between the proportion of households aware of the client’s product before and after the new advertising campaign is -.02 to +.18.
