If the assumptions for a pooled t-interval are satisfied, the formula for a (1 − α)-level lower confidence bound for the difference, μ1 − μ2, between two population means is
For a right-tailed hypothesis test at the significance level α, the null hypothesis H0: μ1 = μ2 will be rejected in favor of the alternative hypothesis Ha: μ1 > μ2 if and only if the (1 − α)-level lower confidence bound for μ1 − μ2 is positive. In each case, illustrate the preceding relationship by obtaining the appropriate lower confidence bound and comparing the result to the conclusion of the hypothesis test in the specified exercise.
