Part B

The ABC Battery Company has developed a new battery. The engineer in charge

claims that the new battery will operate continuously for at least 7 minutes longer

than the old battery. To test the claim, the company selects a simple random sample of

100 new batteries and 100 old batteries. The old batteries run continuously for 190

minutes with a standard deviation of 20 minutes; the new batteries, 200 minutes with

a standard deviation of 40 minutes. Test the engineer's claim that the new batteries run

at least 7 minutes longer than the old. (Assume that there are no outliers in either

sample.)
