**Chapter 9** Hypothesis Testing and Estimation for Two Population Parameters

**Chapter 9 - Chapter Outcomes** After studying the material in this chapter, you should be able to: Use sample data to test hypotheses that two population variances are equal. Discuss the logic behind, and demonstrate the techniques for, using sample data to test hypotheses and develop interval estimates about the difference between two population means for both independent and paired samples.

**Chapter 9 - Chapter Outcomes(continued)** After studying the material in this chapter, you should be able to: Carry out hypotheses tests and establish interval estimates, using sample data, for the difference between two population proportions.

**Hypothesis Tests for Two Population Variances** HYPOTHESIS TESTING STEPS • Formulate the null and alternative hypotheses in terms of the population parameter of interest. • Determine the level of significance. • Determine the critical value of the test statistic. • Select the sample and compute the test statistic. • Compare the calculated test statistic to the critical value and reach a conclusion.

**Independent Samples** Independent samples are those samples selected from two or more populations in such a way that the occurrence of values in one sample have no influence on the probability of the occurrence of values in the other sample(s).

**Paired Samples Hypothesis Testing and Estimation** Paired samples are samples selected such that each data value from one sample is related (or matched) with a corresponding data value from the second sample. The sample values from one population have the potential to influence the probability that values will be selected from the second population.
