82. Starting annual salaries for business school graduates majoring in finance and
management information systems (MIS) were collected in two independent random
samples. Use the following data to develop a 95% confidence interval estimate of the
difference between the starting salaries for the two majors. Based on previous studies,
the population standard deviations for Finance and MIS salaries are estimated to be
\$2,100 and \$2,600, respectively.

83. A manager is thinking of providing, on a regular basis, in-house training for employees
preparing for an inventory management certification exam. In the past, some employees
received the in-house training before taking the exam, while others did not. Independent
random samples taken from the company’s records provided the following exam scores
for 10 workers who did not receive in-house training and 8 workers who did receive
training. (The manager is confident that the distributions of both populations’ exam
scores are approximately normal.)

84. A survey was recently conducted to determine if consumers spend more on computer-
related purchases via the Internet or store visits. Assume a sample of 8 respondents
provided the following data on their computer-related purchases during a 30-day period.
Using a .05 level of significance, can we conclude that consumers spend more on
computer-related purchases by way of the Internet than by visiting stores?

85. Regional Manager Sue Collins would like to know if the mean number of telephone calls
made per 8-hour shift is the same for the telemarketers at her three call centers (Austin,
Las Vegas, and Albuquerque). A simple random sample of 6 telemarketers from each of
the three call centers was taken and the number of telephone calls made in eight hours by
each observed employee is shown below.
