Step 1

Here, the population standard deviation is unknown, so the t-distribution is used.

It is provided that n1 = n2 = 400.

The required assumptions are:

Two population variances are equal and the population data follows normal distribution.

a.

The formula to calculate the 95% confidence interval for the difference between the two population means is:

Step 2

The calculations are shown below:

Step 3

Thus, the 95% confidence interval to estimate the ...
