2 2 Slide IS 310 – Business Statistics Inferences on Two Populations In the past, we dealt with one population mean and one population proportion. However, there are situations where two populations are involved dealing with two means. Examples are the following: O We want to compare the mean salaries of male and female graduates (two populations and two means). O We want to compare the mean miles per gallon(MPG) of two comparable automobile makes (two populations and two means)
