# 10.9 A car magazine is comparing the total repair costs incurredduring the first three years on two sports cars, the T-999 and the XPY.Random samples of 45 T-999s and 51 XPYS are taken. All 96 cars are3 years old and have similar mileages. The mean of repair costs forthe 45 T-999 cars is \$3300 for the first 3 years. For the 51 XPY carsthis mean is \$3850. Assume that the standard deviations for the twopopulations are \$800 and \$1000, respectivelya. Construct a 99% confidence interval for the differencebetween the two population meansb. Using a 1% significance level, can you conclude that suchmean repair costs are different for these two types of cars?c. What would your decision be in part b if the probability ofmaking a Type I error were zero? Explain
