### Experimental car bumper and repair incidents

Assignment Help Basic Statistics
##### Reference no: EM13110326

An experimental bumper was designed to reduce damage in low-speed collisions. This bumper was installed on an experimental group of vans in a large fleet, but not on a control group. At the end of a trial period, there were 12 repair incidents (a "repair incident" is an accident that resulted in a repair invoice) for the experimental group and 9 repair incidents for the control group. The dollar cost per repair incident is shown below.

(b) Perform a one-tailed parametric t test for two independent sample means by using Excel or MegaStat. Do you get the same decision? (Data are from Floyd G. Willoughby and Thomas W. Lauer, confidential case study.)
