Question

Repeat Problem 4 assuming that the times spent per week playing with their children by all alcoholic and all nonalcoholic fathers both are normally distributed with unequal and unknown standard deviations.
In Problem 4
A sample of 20 alcoholic fathers showed that they spend an average of 2.3 hours per week playing with their children with a standard deviation of .54 hour. A sample of 25 nonalcoholic fathers gave a mean of 4.6 hours per week with a standard deviation of .8 hour.
a. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the difference between the mean times spent per week playing with their children by all alcoholic and all nonalcoholic fathers.
b. Test at a 1% significance level whether the mean time spent per week playing with their children by all alcoholic fathers is less than that of nonalcoholic fathers.
Assume that the times spent per week playing with their children by all alcoholic and all nonalcoholic fathers both are normally distributed with equal but unknown standard deviations.
