Hypothesis Test 2:
Do airport car rental agencies charge lower rates, on average, in San Francisco than in San Jose?
Conduct a test of this question with a 3% level of significance.
The table shows weekly car rental rates
in San Francisco and San Jose for a sample of rental companies and car types.
For each company/car size combination in the sample, the rates are shown for both cities.
The sample rates in the table were quoted
on Travel: Airfares, hotels, vacations, cruises, car rentals and more at Travelocity.com on 11/27/2007
for rentals at airport rental outlets
for the week 12/1–12/8/2007.
We will use this data as a sample of the population of all models of cars available for rent from all airport car rental agencies in San Francisco and San Jose.
Using a 3% level of significance, perform a hypothesis test to determine if airport car rental agencies charge lower rates, on average, in San Francisco than in San Jose.
