Two researchers conducted a study in which two groups of students were asked to answer 42 trivia questions from a board game. The students in group 1 were asked to spend 5 minutes

thinking about what it would mean to be a professor, while the students in group 2 were asked to think about soccer hooligans. These pretest thoughts are a form of priming. The 200

students in group 1 had a mean score of 26.1 with a standard deviation of 4.5, while the 200 students in group 2 had a mean score of 19.4 with a standard deviation of 3.6. Complete parts

(a) and (b) below.

(a) Determine the 90% confidence interval for the difference in scores, u, – up. Interpret the interval

The lower bound is |

The upper bound is

(Round to three decimal places as needed.)

Interpret the interval. Choose the correct answer below.

OA. The researchers are 90% confident that the difference of the means is in the interval

OB. There is a 90% probability that the difference of the means is in the interval.
