    Olive Garden Swiss Chalet
    Sample size 50 45
    Sample mean $22 $18
    Standard deviation $3.00 $3.25

    How do I create interval estimate for the difference between the average fees of the 2 restaurants at a confidence co-effiecent at 95 %

    What do I need to do to find out the difference in amount spent at the restaurants (sample means)? What test statistic do I use? I thought I should use the z-test because the sample size was greater than 30.

    This is a test of difference in sample means
    Usually we use t test, but in this question you might use z stat as well, given the large sample size.

    Find the 95% confidence interval for the difference between the two means
    Let Md=µ1-µ2= 22-18 = 4
    In the general formula, the estimated standard error, SMd, is computed assuming that the variances in the two populations are equal. when n1 ≠ n2. The ...
