Consider the following measure

Consider the following measures based on independently drawnsamples from normally distributed populations: Use Table 4.

Sample 1: 1formula81.mml = 249, and n1 = 51

Sample 2: 1formula82.mml = 236, and n2 = 26

a. Construct the 95% interval estimate for the ratio of thepopulation variances. (Round “F” value and final answers to 2decimal places.)

Confidence interval _____ to _____

b. Using the confidence interval from Part a, test if the ratioof the population variances differs from one at the 5% significancelevel. Explain.

The 95% confidence interval (does not contain /contains) the value 1.

Thus, we (can, cannot) conclude that the populationvariances differ at the 5% significance level.


I assume that 249 and 236 are sample variance and not samplestandard deviation


Test and CI for Two Variances


Null hypothesis        σ(First) / σ(Second) = 1Alternative hypothesis σ(First) / σ(Second) ≠ 1Significance level      α = 0.05

F method was used. This method is accurate for normal dataonly.
