Q:
# A technician compares repair costs for two types of microwave ovens (type I and type II). He believes that the repair cost for type I ovens is greater than the repair cost for type II ovens. A sample of 60 type I ovens has a mean repair cost of $85.79, with a standard deviation of $15.13. A sample of 56 type II ovens has a mean repair cost of $78.67, with a standard deviation of $17.84. Conduct a hypothesis test of the technician's claim at the 0.1 level of significance. Let μ1 be the true mean repair cost for type I ovens and μ2 be the true mean repair cost for type II ovens.Step 1 of 4: State the null and alternative hypotheses for the test.Step 2 of 4: Compute the value of the test statistic. Round your answer to two decimal places.Step 3 of 4: Determine the decision rule for rejecting the null hypothesis H0. Round the numerical portion of your answer to three decimal places.Step 4 of 4: Make the decision for the hypothesis test. Reject or Fail to Reject Null Hypothesis

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: Since p value <0.1 accept the claim that oven I repair costs are moreStep-by-step explanation:The data given for two types of ovens are summarised below:Group Group One Group Two

standard error of difference = 3.065 t = 2.3234
p value = 0.0219If p value <0.10 reject null hypothesis4) Since p value <0.1 accept the claim that oven I repair costs are more
