Among children under the age of 7, 134 out of 548 tested positive for the H1N1 virus in a large school district. For children between the ages of 7 and 12, 28.4% out of 750 tested positive for H1N1. Construct the 95% confidence interval for the difference in percent infections between children under the age of 7 and 7 or older.


Two sample mean problem:


Two groups of laboratory rats are raised in different size cages. Group A rats were raised in cages four times as large as the rats in Group B. Based on the data below, use a 90% to determine if there is a difference in the body weights. Be sure to interpret your confidence interval in the context of the problem.

ANSWERS


22.


Ho: mu <= 650

Ha: mu > 650


z* = 1.17

p = .121


Fail to reject, there is not enough evidence to suggest that the daily cost is more than $650.  We cannot reject the claim.


2 Sample Proportion CI


-.039 +/- .049 = (-.088,.010)


2 Sample Mean CI


26 +/- 14.23 = (11.8,40.2)
