!Marc Gestopa Difference in Salary of Education and Engineer Majors by Gender
Generated Jun 3, 2016 by terrycrews

State: μF -μ= the true difference in mean salary of male and female education and engineer majors like those in the sample.

HoμF -μ= 0

HA : μF -μM≠ 0

 

Plan: 2-sample t-test for difference in means

α = 0.05

Random: 2 independent random samples

10 % Rule: Females= 10(1088) = 10880 is less than the total population of females

                  Males= 10(1144) = 11440 is less than the total population of males

LCC: Females: 1088 is more than 30 so is a large sample size and therefore the sampling distribution is normally distributed.

        Males: 1144 is more than 30 so it is a large sample size and therefore the sampling distribution is normally distributed. 

 

Do: t = -23.335772 P-value= <0.0001 df = 2202.1975


Conclude: Since the p- value is less than the alpha (<0.0001 < .05) we reject the null and have convincing evidence that there is a difference in the the mean salary of male and female education and engineering majors like those in the sample.
