© 2010 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 11-106 A sampling method is independent when the individuals selected for one sample do not dictate which individuals are to be in a second sample. A sampling method is dependent when the individuals selected to be in one sample are used to determine the individuals to be in the second sample. Dependent samples are often referred to as matched-pairs samples.

All rights reserved 11-107 For each of the following, determine whether the sampling method is independent or dependent. a)A researcher wants to know whether the price of a one night stay at a Holiday Inn Express is less than the price of a one night stay at a Red Roof Inn. She randomly selects 8 towns where the location of the hotels is close to each other and determines the price of a one night stay. b)A researcher wants to know whether the “state” quarters (introduced in 1999) have a mean weight that is different from “traditional” quarters. He randomly selects 18 “state” quarters and 16 “traditional” quarters and compares their weights. Parallel Example 1: Distinguish between Independent and Dependent Sampling

All rights reserved 11-108 a)The sampling method is dependent since the 8 Holiday Inn Express hotels can be matched with one of the 8 Red Roof Inn hotels by town. b)The sampling method is independent since the “state” quarters which were sampled had no bearing on which “traditional” quarters were sampled.

© 2010 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 11-129 This is a matched-pairs design since the hotel prices come from the same ten cities. To test the hypothesis, we first compute the differences and then verify that the differences come from a population that is approximately normally distributed with no outliers because the sample size is small. The differences (Hampton - La Quinta) are: 24 53 100 40 -10 71 77 70 39 50 with = 51.4 and s d = 30.8336. Solution

© 2010 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 11-135 Step 4: Because this is a two-tailed test, the P-value is two times the area under the t-distribution with n-1=10-1=9 degrees of freedom to the right of the test statistic t 0 =5.27. That is, P-value = 2P(t > 5.27) ≈ 2(0.00026)=0.00052 (using technology). Approximately 5 samples in 10,000 will yield results as extreme as we obtained if the null hypothesis is true.

All rights reserved 11-181 When the population variances are assumed to be equal, the pooled t-statistic can be used to test for a difference in means for two independent samples. The pooled t-statistic is computed by finding a weighted average of the sample variances and using this average in the computation of the test statistic. The advantage to this test statistic is that it exactly follows Student’s t-distribution with n 1 +n 2 -2 degrees of freedom. The disadvantage to this test statistic is that it requires that the population variances be equal.

The shape of the F-distribution depends upon the degrees of freedom in the numerator and denominator. This is similar to the  2 distribution and Student’s t- distribution, whose shapes depend upon their degrees of freedom.

All rights reserved 11-267 To test hypotheses regarding two population standard deviations,  1 and  2, we can use the following steps, provided that 1.the samples are obtained using simple random sampling, 2.the sample data are independent, and 3.the populations from which the samples are drawn are normally distributed. Test Hypotheses Regarding Two Population Standard Deviations

© 2010 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 11-268 Step 1: Determine the null and alternative hypotheses. The hypotheses can be structured in one of three ways: Two-TailedLeft-TailedRight-Tailed H 0 :  1 =  2 H 1 :  1 ≠  2 H 1 :  1 <  2 H 1 :  1 >  2 Note:  1 is the population standard deviation for population 1 and  2 is the population standard deviation for population 2.

© 2010 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 11-280 A researcher wanted to know whether “state” quarters had a standard deviation weight that is less than “traditional” quarters. He randomly selected 18 “state” quarters and 16 “traditional” quarters, weighed each of them and obtained the data on the next slide. A normal probability plot indicates that the sample data could come from a population that is normal. Test the researcher’s claim at the  = 0.05 level of significance. Parallel Example 2: Testing Hypotheses Regarding Two Population Standard Deviations

© 2010 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 11-282 Step 1: The researcher wants to know if “state” quarters have a standard deviation weight that is less than “traditional” quarters. Thus H 0 :  1 =  2 versus H 1 :  1 <  2 This is a left-tailed test. Step 2: The level of significance is  = 0.05. Solution

© 2010 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 11-283 Step 3: The standard deviation of “state” quarters was found to be 0.0497 and the standard deviation of “traditional” quarters was found to be 0.0689. The test statistic is then Solution

© 2010 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 11-284 Step 4: Since this is a left-tailed test, we determine the critical value at the 1-  = 1-0.05 = 0.95 level of significance with n 1 -1=18-1=17 degrees of freedom in the numerator and n 2 -1=16-1=15 degrees of freedom in the denominator. Thus, Note: we used the table value F 0.05,15,15 for the above calculation since this is the closest to the required degrees of freedom available from Table VIII. Solution: Classical Approach

© 2010 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 11-285 Step 5: Since the test statistic F 0 = 0.52 is greater than the critical value F 0.95,17,15 =0.42, we fail to reject the null hypothesis. Solution: Classical Approach

© 2010 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 11-286 Step 4: Using technology, we find that the P-value is 0.097. If the statement in the null hypothesis were true, we would expect to get the results obtained about 10 out of 100 times. This is not very unusual. Solution: P-Value Approach

© 2010 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 11-287 Step 5: Since the P-value is greater than the level of significance,  = 0.05, we fail to reject the null hypothesis. Solution: P-Value Approach

© 2010 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 11-288 Step 6: There is not enough evidence to conclude that the standard deviation of weight is less for “state” quarters than it is for “traditional” quarters at the  = 0.05 level of significance. Solution
