Two different analytical tests can be used to determine the impurity level in steel alloys. Nine specimens are tested using both procedures, and the results are shown in the following tabulation.
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline Specimen & Test-1 & Test-2 \\ \hline 1 & 1.2 & 1.4 \\ \hline 2 & 1.6 & 1.7 \\ \hline 3 & 1.5 & 1.5 \\ \hline 4 & 1.4 & 1.3 \\ \hline 5 & 1.8 & 2.0 \\ \hline 6 & 1.8 & 2.1 \\ \hline 7 & 1.4 & 1.7 \\ \hline 8 & 1.5 & 1.6 \\ \hline 9 & 1.4 & 1.5 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
Find the \(\displaystyle{95}\%\) confidence interval for the mean difference of the tests, and explain it.

Step 1
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline Test-1(X) & Test-2(Y) & (x-\bar{x}) & (x-\bar{x})^{2} & (y-\bar{y}) & (y-\bar{y})^{2} \\ \hline 1.2 & 1.4 & -0.31111 & 0.09679 & -0.24444 & 0.05975 \\ \hline 1.6 & 1.7 & 0.08889 & 0.00790 & 0.05556 & 0.00309 \\ \hline 1.5 & 1.5 & -0.01111 & 0.00012 & -0.14444 & 0.02086 \\ \hline 1.4 & 1.3 & -0.11111 & 0.01235 & -0.34444 & 0.11864 \\ \hline 1.8 & 2.0 & 0.28889 & 0.08346 & 0.35556 & 0.12642 \\ \hline 1.8 & 2.1 & 0.28889 & 0.08346 & 0.45556 & 0.20753 \\ \hline 1.4 & 1.7 & -0.11111 & 0.01235 & 0.05556 & 0.00309 \\ \hline 1.5 & 1.6 & -0.01111 & 0.00012 & -0.04444 & 0.00198\\ \hline 1.4 & 1.5 & -0.11111 & 0.01235 & -0.14444 & 0.02086\\ \hline \end{array}\)
Step 2
The mean is given by
\(\displaystyle\overline{{{x}}}={\frac{{{1}}}{{{n}}}}\sum{x}\)
Test 1

\(\displaystyle\overline{{{x}}}={\frac{{{13.6}}}{{{9}}}}={1.511}\)
Test 2
\(\displaystyle\overline{{{y}}}={\frac{{{14.8}}}{{{9}}}}={1.644}\)
The standard deviation is given by
\(\displaystyle\sigma=\sqrt{{{\frac{{{1}}}{{{n}-{1}}}}\sum{\left({x}-\overline{{{x}}}\right)}^{{{2}}}}}\)
Test 1
\(\displaystyle\sigma=\sqrt{{{\frac{{{0.30889}}}{{{8}}}}}}={0.1965}\)
Test 2
\(\displaystyle{s}_{{{2}}}=\sqrt{{{\frac{{{0.5622}}}{{{8}}}}}}={0.2651}\)
The \(\displaystyle{95}\%\) CI is given by
\(\displaystyle{C}.{I}.={\left(\overline{{{x}}}-\overline{{{y}}}\right)}\pm{t}_{{{0.05},\ {8}}}\sqrt{{{\frac{{{{s}_{{{1}}}^{{{2}}}}}}{{{n}_{{{1}}}}}}+{\frac{{{{s}_{{{2}}}^{{{2}}}}}}{{{n}_{{{2}}}}}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{C}.{I}.={\left({1.511}-{1.644}\right)}\pm{2.306}\sqrt{{{\frac{{{\left({0.1965}\right)}^{{{2}}}}}{{{9}}}}+{\frac{{{\left({0.2651}\right)}^{{{2}}}}}{{{9}}}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{C}.{I}.={\left[-{0.387},\ {0.120}\right]}\)
It shows that the true difference between the mean of test 1 and test 2 will lie within -0.387 and 0.120.

Is there a relationship between confidence intervals and two-tailed hypothesis tests? Let e be the level of confidence used to construct a confidence interval from sample data. Let \(\alpha\) be the level of significance for a two-tailed hypothesis test. The following statement applies to hypothesis tests of the mean. (A corresponding relationship between confidence intervals and two-tailed hypothesis tests also is valid for other parameters such as p, \(mu_{1}-\mu_{2}\), or \(p_{1}-p_{2}\), which we will study in Section 9.3, 10.2, and 10.3.) Whenever the value of k given in the null hypothesis falls outside the \(\displaystyle{c}={1}-\alpha\) confidence interval for the parameter, we reject \(H_{0}\). For example, consider a two-tailed hypothesis test with \(\alpha =0.01\ \text{and}\ H_{0}:\mu =20 H_{1}:\mu 20\) sample mean \(\displaystyle{x}¯={22}\) from a population with standard deviation \(\displaystyle\sigma={4}\).
(a) What is the value of c\(\displaystyle{c}={1}-\alpha\);. Using the methods, construct a \(\displaystyle{c}={1}-\alpha\); confidence interval for μ from the sample data. What is the value of \(\mu\); given in the null hypothesis (i.e., what is k)? Is this value in the confidence interval? Do we reject or fail to reject \(H_0\) based on this information?
(b) using methods, find the P-value for the hypothesis test. Do we reject or fail to reject \(H_0\)? Compare your result to that of part (a).

In there a relationship between confidence intervals and two-tailed hypothesis tests? The answer is yes. Let c be the level of confidence used to construct a confidence interval from sample data. Let * be the level of significance for a two-tailed hypothesis test. The following statement applies to hypothesis tests of the mean: For a two-tailed hypothesis test with level of significance a and null hypothesis \(H_0 : mu = k\) we reject Ho whenever k falls outside the \(c = 1 — \alpha\) confidence interval for mu based on the sample data. When A falls within the \(c = 1 — \alpha\) confidence interval. we do reject \(H_0\). For a one-tailed hypothesis test with level of significance Ho : mu = k and null hypothesiswe reject Ho whenever A falls outsidethe \(c = 1 — 2\alpha\) confidence interval for p based on the sample data. When A falls within the \(c = 1 — 2\alpha\) confidence interval, we do not reject \(H_0\). A corresponding relationship between confidence intervals and two-tailed hypothesis tests is also valid for other parameters, such as \(p,\mu_1 — \mu_2,\) and \(p_1, - p_2\). (b) Consider the hypotheses \(H_0 : p_1 — p_2 = O\) and \(H_1 : p_1 — p_2 =\) Suppose a 98% confidence interval for \(p_1 — p_2\) contains only positive numbers. Should you reject the null hypothesis when alpha = 0.05? Why or why not?

When σ is unknown and the sample size is \(\displaystyle{n}\geq{30}\), there are tow methods for computing confidence intervals for μμ. Method 1: Use the Student's t distribution with d.f. = n - 1. This is the method used in the text. It is widely employed in statistical studies. Also, most statistical software packages use this method. Method 2: When \(\displaystyle{n}\geq{30}\), use the sample standard deviation s as an estimate for σσ, and then use the standard normal distribution. This method is based on the fact that for large samples, s is a fairly good approximation for σσ. Also, for large n, the critical values for the Student's t distribution approach those of the standard normal distribution. Consider a random sample of size n = 31, with sample mean x¯=45.2 and sample standard deviation s = 5.3. (c) Compare intervals for the two methods. Would you say that confidence intervals using a Student's t distribution are more conservative in the sense that they tend to be longer than intervals based on the standard normal distribution?
