1
IS THERE A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN THE AMOUNT OF CLASSIC GOLDFISH IN A BAG THAN COLORED GOLDFISH? Madeleine Calvo & Allie Eckerman AP Stats period 7

2
Population of Interest The true mean amount of goldfish in a bag of “classic” goldfish The true mean amount if goldfish in a bag of colored goldfish

3
Randomization At Target, we numbered each package of goldfish and had our calculator randomly choose the 4 total boxes of goldfish that we bought. Next, we randomly chose the 15 pre-packaged bags of goldfish and counted out the number of crackers in each bag. We separated each bag we counted into separate piles to avoid miscounting.

4
Data Analysis Ho: M 1 = M 2 Ha: M 1 ≠ M 2 M 1 = Mean amount of classic goldfish in a bag M 2 = Mean amount of colored goldfish in a bag

5
Conditions Randomness Yes, we randomly chose the bas of goldfish off the shelf at the store. Independence Yes. (N>10n) (N>10(15)) (N>150). There are more than 150 bags of each type of goldfish in the population. Therefore, we can assume 10% condition was met for both samples. Normality Our sample size is less than 30, so we cannot use the Central Limit Theorem. Therefore, we must check graphs to determine normality.

6
Checking Normality Colored Goldfish Classic Goldfish The boxplots show no major skewness or outliers so safe to assume the sampling distributions are approximately normal.

7
Data Number of Goldfish Trials

8
2 sample T-test Xbar T-Value= SD 1 =1.387 P-Value=1.852 x 10-9 n 1 =15 Xbar df= (using calculator) SD 2 = n 2 =15

9
Conclusion Since the p value is lower then any reasonable alpha level, we rejected the null hypothesis. Therefore, based on this test, we have reasonable evidence to prove that there is a difference in the true mean number of goldfish in a one ounce bag of classic goldfish vs. the true mean number of goldfish in a one ounce bag of colored goldfish.

10
Confidence Interval Since we rejected the alpha level we have to calculate a confidence interval to prove significance. (x ̄ 1 - x ̄ 2 ) ± t* (√S 1 2 /n 1 + S 2 2 /n 2 ) t* = for a 90% Confidence Interval = (4.1504, ) We are 90% confident that the true mean difference between the amount of goldfish in a classic bag vs. the amount of goldfish in a colored bag is between and goldfish.

11
Confidence Interval Conclusion To further support our claim, we ran a 90% confidence interval. Since the test did not capture zero, the test proved significant difference between the amount of classic goldfish vs. colored goldfish in a one ounce bag.

12
SO… Based on our tests, there is significant evidence to prove that a one ounce bag of colored goldfish has less goldfish than a one ounce bag of classic goldfish.
