A cell phone company offers two plans to its subscribers. At the time new subscribers sign up, they are asked to provide some demographic information. The mean yearly income for a sample of 38 subscribers to Plan A is $45,000 with a standard deviation of $9,200. For a sample of 26 subscribers to Plan B, the mean income is $49,500 with a standard deviation of $7,100.
At the 0.100 significance level, is it reasonable to conclude the mean income of those selecting Plan B is larger? Assume unequal population standard deviations. Hint: For the calculations, assume the Plan A as the first sample.
