As part of the quality control process, samples of parts are periodically taken for measurement to see if they conform to specifications. In one sample the diameter of a part is measured with the following results:
x_m1 = 3.56 mm, σ_1 = 0.06 mm, n_1 = 20
A second sample is taken with the following results:
x_m2 = 3.58 mm, σ_2 = 0.03 mm, n_2 = 23
Examine these data to determine if they yield the same results with a confidence level of 90 percent. Repeat for a confidence level of 95 percent.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 3, 2020, 6:10 pm ad1c9bdddf
