# Question

A test was conducted to determine whether a wedge on the end of a plug fitting designed to hold a seal onto the plug was doing its job. The data taken were in the form of measurements of the force required to remove a seal from the plug with the wedge in place (say, X) and the force required without the plug (say, Y). Assume that the distributions of X and Y are N(μX, σ2) and N(μY, σ2), respectively. Ten independent observations of X are
Ten independent observations of Y are
(a) Find a 95% confidence interval for μX − μY.
(b) Construct box-and-whisker diagrams of these data on the same figure.
(c) Is the wedge necessary?
