Chapter 9 Testing the Difference Between Two Means, Two Proportions, and Two Variances McGraw-Hill, Bluman, 7th ed., Chapter 9 1 This the last day the class meets before spring break starts. Please make sure to be present for the test or make appropriate arrangements to take the test before leaving for spring break Bluman, Chapter 9 2 Chapter 9 Overview Introduction 9-1 Testing the Difference Between Two Means: Using the z Test 9-2 Testing the Difference Between Two Means of Independent Samples: Using the t Test 9-3 Testing the Difference Between Two Means: Dependent Samples 9-4 Testing the Difference Between Proportions 9-5 Testing the Difference Between Two Variances Bluman, Chapter 9 3 Chapter 9 Objectives 1. Test the difference between sample means, using the z test. 2. Test the difference between two means for independent samples, using the t test. 3. Test the difference between two means for dependent samples. 4. Test the difference between two proportions. 5. Test the difference between two variances or standard deviations. Bluman, Chapter 9 4 Section 9-1 Introduction Pepsi vs. Coke 9.1 Testing the Difference Between Two Means: Using the z Test Assumptions: 1. The samples must be independent of each other. That is, there can be no relationship between the subjects in each sample. 2. The standard deviations of both populations must be known, and if the sample sizes are less than 30, the populations must be normally or approximately normally distributed.

Assume that the data were obtained from two samples of 50 hotels each and that the standard deviations of the populations are $5.62 and $4.83, respectively. At α = 0.05, can it be concluded that there is a significant difference in the rates? Step 1: State the hypotheses and identify the claim. H0: μ1 = μ2 and H1: μ1 μ2 (claim) Step 2: Find the critical value. The critical value is z = ±1.96. Bluman, Chapter 9 11 Example 9-1: Hotel Room Cost A survey found that the average hotel room rate in New Orleans is $88.42 and the average room rate in Phoenix is $80.61. Assume that the data were obtained from two samples of 50 hotels each and that the standard deviations of the populations are $5.62 and $4.83, respectively. At α = 0.05, can it be concluded that there is a significant difference in the rates?

Reject the null hypothesis at α = 0.05, since 7.45 > 1.96. Step 5: Summarize the results. There is enough evidence to support the claim that the means are not equal. Hence, there is a significant difference in the rates. Bluman, Chapter 9 14 Chapter 9 Testing the Difference Between Two Means, Two Proportions, and Two Variances Section 9-1 Example 9-2 Page #475 Bluman, Chapter 9 15 Example 9-2: College Sports Offerings A researcher hypothesizes that the average number of sports that colleges offer for males is greater than the average number of sports that colleges offer for females. A sample of the number of sports offered by colleges is shown. At α = 0.10, is there enough evidence to support the claim? Assume 1 and 2 = 3.3. Bluman, Chapter 9 16 Example 9-2: College Sports Offerings Step 1: State the hypotheses and identify the claim. H0: μ1 = μ2 and H1: μ1 μ2 (claim) Step 2: Compute the test value. Using a calculator, we find For theXmales: = 8.6 and 1 = 3.3 1 X2 For the females: = 7.9 and 2 = 3.3 Substitute in the formula. z X 1 X 2 1 2 1 2 n1 2 2 n2 Bluman, Chapter 9 8 .6 7 .9 0 3 .3 50 2 3 .3 1 .0 6 2 50 17 Example 9-2: College Sports Offerings Step 3: Find the P-value. For z = 1.06, the area is 0.8554. The P-value is 1.0000 - 0.8554 = 0.1446. Step 4: Make the decision. Do not reject the null hypothesis. Step 5: Summarize the results. There is not enough evidence to support the claim that colleges offer more sports for males than they do for females.
