where:

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

- 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.

- 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.

- The miles per gallon rating must be normally

- 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).

- With a matched-sample design each sampled item provides a pair of data values.
- The matched-sample design can be referred to as blocking.
- This design often leads to a smaller sampling error than the independent-sample design because variation between sampled items is eliminated as a source of sampling error.

- Inference about the Difference between the Means of Two Populations: Matched Samples
A Chicago-based firm has documents that must be quickly distributed to district offices throughout the U.S. The firm must decide between two delivery services, UPX (United Parcel Express) and INTEX (International Express), to transport its documents. 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?

MRA (Market Research Associates) is conducting research to evaluate the effectiveness of a client’s new advertising campaign. 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?
