Question

The data provided in the file on the CD include the average numbers of runs scored per game (Runs per game) by American League and National League teams for the 2012 season (www.baseball-reference.com).
a) Create an appropriate display of these data. What do you see?
b) With a 95% confidence interval, estimate the mean number of runs scored by American League teams.
c) With a 95% confidence interval, estimate the mean number of runs scored by National League teams.
