**I5 (Week 5) Individual Assignment Final: Z-test I5:**Identify a research problem different from the previous research problems that uses two different sets of the same type of data. Example: Sales from two different months or years. GPA’s of men and women. Number of two different shelf items sold (Coke & Pepsi) by month over a year. Home sales prices in different suburbs, cities counties or states. You wish to determine if there is a significant difference between the means of the data sets. Select data that have absolute zero measurements (Ratio data). You may use recorded data or made up data. The n sample size should be at least 30 in each set, but not more than 50. Prepare a paper describing the research problem, research purpose and one research question. Include a definition of the variables you are measuring. List the data. List alpha, the null and alternative hypothesis, and give a brief back ground. Do MegaStat descriptive statistics on the data and do data analysis describing the data. Do runs plot graphs.
