Problem 1SE

A molecular biologist is studying the effectiveness of a particular enzyme to digest a certain sequence of DNA nucleotides. He divides six DNA samples into two parts, treats one part with the enzyme, and leaves the other part untreated. He then uses a polymerase chain reaction assay to count the number of DNA fragments that contain the given sequence. The results are as follows:

Find a 95% confidence interval for the difference between the mean numbers of fragments.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 1:

Given a molecular biologist divides 6 DNA sample into two parts.

First one is enzyme present and  enzyme absent.

Then the data is given below.

From the given information we know that and .

Our goal is:

We need to  find the 95% confidence interval for the difference between the mean number of fragments.

Now we have to find the 95% confidence interval for the difference between the mean number of fragments.

The formula of the confidence interval for the difference between the means is

   

Here we subtracted enzyme absent and enzyme present.

Then the table is given below.

Enzyme present
