1. Formulate and present the rational for a hypothesis test that Par could use to compare the driving distances of the current and new gold balls.
2. Analyze the data to provide the hypothesis testing conclusion. What is the p-value for your test? What is your recommendation for Par. Inc?
3. Provide descriptive statistical summaries of the data for each model.
4. What is the 95% confidence interval for the population mean of each model, and what is the 95% confidence interval for the difference between the means of the two populations?
5. Do you see a need for larger samples sizes and more testing with the golf balls? Discuss
