using the z test.
2. Test the difference between two means for
independent samples, using the t test.
3. Test the difference between two means for
dependent samples.

9.1 Testing the Difference Between
Two Means: Using the z Test
Assumptions:
1. The samples must be independent of each
other. That is, there can be no relationship
between the subjects in each sample.
2. The standard deviations of both
populations must be known, and if the
sample sizes are less than 30, the
populations must be normally or
approximately normally distributed.

Example 9-1: Hotel Room Cost
A survey found that the average hotel room rate in New
Orleans is \$88.42 and the average room rate in Phoenix is
\$80.61. Assume that the data were obtained from two
samples of 50 hotels each and that the standard
deviations of the populations are \$5.62 and \$4.83,
respectively. At α = 0.05, can it be concluded that there is
a significant difference in the rates?
Step 1: State the hypotheses and identify the claim.
H0: μ1 = μ2 and H1: μ1  μ2 (claim)
Step 2: Find the critical value.
The critical value is z = ±1.96.

Step 4: Make the decision.
Reject the null hypothesis at α = 0.05, since
7.45 > 1.96.
Step 5: Summarize the results.
There is enough evidence to support the claim
that the means are not equal. Hence, there is a
significant difference in the rates.

Example 9-2: College Sports Offerings
A researcher hypothesizes that the average number of
sports that colleges offer for males is greater than the
average number of sports that colleges offer for females.
A sample of the number of sports offered by colleges is
shown. At α = 0.10, is there enough evidence to support
the claim? Assume 1 and 2 = 3.3.

Step 1: State the hypotheses and identify the claim.
H0: μ1 = μ2 and H1: μ1  μ2 (claim)
Step 2: Compute the test value.
Using a calculator, we find

Step 3: Find the P-value.
For z = 1.06, the area is 0.8554.
The P-value is 1.0000 - 0.8554 = 0.1446.
Step 4: Make the decision.
Do not reject the null hypothesis.
Step 5: Summarize the results.
There is not enough evidence to support the
claim that colleges offer more sports for males
than they do for females.
