1. Discuss examples where you would use test of hypothesis at your personal or professional life, in your education or society for the following situations:

(a) For two population means and discuss if the example would use large samples or small samples.

Perhaps a student who is writing a thesis or a college professor might be interested in investigating the following research question: Do male and female college students differ with respect to their fastest reported driving speed? They could take a random sample of the population of all female college students (n1 = 30) and a population of all male college student (n2 = 30).

Let μf = the average fastest speed of all female college students

Let μm = the average fastest speed of all ...

#### Solution Summary

By responding to the two scenarios, this solution provides examples of where you would use the test of hypothesis.
