This T-Test project is to research if there is a cost difference for paperback books between
two major online book sellers, amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com. I chose 50 titles and
compared the prices between the two online dealers. Based off personal shopping experience and
initial data colleting I expect Amazon.com to have lower prices for paperback books than
Barnesandnoble.com. Population
I selected 50 paperback book titles that both Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com sell
on their websites. Variables and Data Collection I collected the data for all 50 paperback titles from www.Amazon.com and
www.barnesandnoble.com. I started by finding titles by looking at the New York Times best
sellers list that was listed on Amazon.com, then went to popular titles, and then whet to award
winning titles to get a total of 50 paperback book titles. While doing this I also recorded the price
for the title as well. After I made the first list based off of Amazon.com I then went to
Barnesandnoble.com, and recorded the prices they listed. As I was doing the price collecting I
realized that Barnesandnoble.com didn’t have a few of the titles in paperback so to keep the
integrity of the data I had to find alternate titles. MODULE 9 – PROJECT: T-TEST PROJECT SUBMITTAL 3 Statistical Test and Hypothesis Statement
I will be using StatCrunch to perform a two sample T-Test to analyze the data I collected.
The null hypothesis is that Amazon.com = Barnesandnoble.com and the alternate hypothesis is
that Amazon.com &lt; Barnesandnoble.com. (H0: µ1 = µ2 , HA: µ1 &lt; µ2)Results Descriptive statistics
I believe the conditions for a confidence interval and hypothesis test are met because the
sample sizes are evenly distributed.
95% confidence interval results:

Using the 95% confidence interval, the lower limit is -1.443 and the upper limit of
-0.132 with a standard error or 0.330 and a sample difference of -0788. The hypothesis results
resulted in a test statistic of -2.3880. The degree of freedom is 90.743 and the p-value is 0.0095.
Conclusion:
Based on the researched data, the p value is 0.0095, is significantly less than 0.05.
This tells me that it supports the alternate hypothesis and the null hypothesis can be rejected. The
95% confidence, the mean between Amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com is between (-1.443,
-0.132). This interval concludes that my alternate hypothesis that Amazon.com has lower
paperback book prices than barnesandnoble.com is true.
Discussion:
After going over the results of both tests, based off the p value and other information
produced from StatCrunch this supports that the alternate hypothesis that Amazon.com has lower
paperback book prices than barnesandnoble.com is true. MODULE 9 – PROJECT: T-TEST PROJECT SUBMITTAL 5 Appendix A
