Randomly selected statistics students were given five seconds to estimate the value of a product of numbers with a summary of the results of both groups given below. Does the order of the numbers appear to have an effect on the variances? Use a 0.05 significance level to test the difference between variances of the two samples. Use the traditional method to perform the test.

Order 1: Estimates from 40 Students Given: 1 X 2 X 3 X 4 X 5 X 6 X 7 X 8
n = 28 x-bar = 28,344.9 s = 5,667.9

Order 2: Estimates from 42 Students Given: 8 X 7 X 6 X 5 X 4 X 3 X 2 X 1
n = 25 x-bar = 36,001.0 s = 7,679.4

The American Association of University Professors conducts salary studies of college professors and publishes its finding in the AAUP Annual Report. College professors are divided into two populations: faculty in public institutions and faculty in private institutions. The summary statistics for the starting salaries of the two populations are given below. Use the traditional method to test for a difference in the means of the two groups at the 0.02 level of significance. Find the 98% confidence interval for the difference between the two means and interpret the result.

Insitution mean sd n
Sample 1: Public \$33,890 \$1,820 37
Sample 2: Private \$32,610 \$1,730 35
