A physician wants to develop criteria for determining whether a

patient’s pulse rate is atypical, and she wants to determine

whether there are significant differences between males and

females. Use the sample pulse rates below. Male 96 64 88 64 84 84

68 64 68 64 Female 68 84 104 60 76 88 96 76 72 124 a. Construct a

95% confidence interval estimate of the mean pulse rate for males.

___<Î¼<___ (Round to one decimal place as needed.) b.

Construct a 95% confidence interval estimate of the mean pulse rate

for females. ___<Î¼<___ (Round to one decimal place as

needed.) c. Compare the preceding results. Can we conclude that the

population means for males and females are different? A. Yes,

because the two confidence intervals do not overlap, we can

conclude that the two population means are different. B. Yes, the

population mean for males appears to be greater than the population

mean for females. C. Yes, the population mean for females appears

to be greater than the population mean for males. D. No, because

the two confidence intervals overlap, we cannot conclude that the

two population means are different. A physician wants to develop
