The SAT subject tests in chemistry and physics for two groups of 15 students each electing to take these tests are given below.
s = 114 s = 103
n = 15 n = 15
a. To use the two-sample t test with a pooled estimate of σ2, you must assume that the two population variances are equal. Test this assumption using the F test for equality of variances. What is the approximate p-value for the test?
b. Construct a 90% confidence interval for the variance ratio.
c. Now use the two-sample t test to detect a difference between the two population means. State the null and alternative hypotheses for the test. Test using α = 0.01 and state your conclusions.
d. Find the approximate p-value for the test.
e. Find a 99% confidence interval for (????1−????2). Interpret the interval.
