- Based on our sample data, can we conclude that males and females are distributed across grades in a similar pattern within the population?
- Using our sample data, construct a 95% confidence interval for the population's mean service difference for each gender. Do they intersect or overlap? How do these results compare to the findings in week 2, question 2?
