## Question:

A manufacturer uses a large amount of a certain chemical. Since there are just two suppliers of this chemical, the manufacturer wishes to test whether the percentage of contaminants is the same for the two sources against the alternative that there is a difference in the percentages of contaminants for the two suppliers. Data from independent random samples are shown below:

a. Use the Wilcoxon rank sum test to determine whether there is a difference in the contaminant percentages for the two suppliers. Use Î± = .05.
b. Use the large-sample approximation to the Wilcoxon rank sum test to determine whether there is a difference in the contaminant percentages for the two suppliers. Use Î± = .05. Compare your conclusions to the conclusions from part a.
