The u.s. department of transportation provides the number of miles

12. The U.S. Department of Transportation provides the number of miles that residents of the 75 largest metropolitan areas travel per day in a car. Suppose that for a simple random sample of 50 Buffalo residents the mean is 22.5 miles a day and the standard deviation is 8.4 miles a day, and for an independent simple random sample of 40 Boston residents the mean is 18.6 miles a day and the standard deviation is 7.4 miles a day.

a)      What is the point estimate of the difference between the mean number of miles that Buffalo residents travel per day and the mean number of miles that Boston residents travel per day?

b)      What is the 95% confidence interval for the difference between the two population means?

c)       Do these cities have the same population means? State the hypothesis and conclude using alpha = .05

Use α = .05 and test for a significance difference among the population mean annual technology salaries for these locations. What is the p-value? What is your conclusion? If a difference exists, which location appears to have the highest mean technology salary?
