The confidence interval includes only negative values which suggests that the two population means might be equal. There doesn’t appear to be a significant difference between the mean height of women from country A and the mean height of women from country B.
The confidence interval includes only negative values which suggests that the mean height of women from country A is smaller than the mean height of women from country B.

19. Construct the indicated confidence interval for the difference between the two population means. Assume that the two samples are independent simple random samples selected from normally distributed populations. Also assume that the population standard deviations are equal (sigma1 = sigma2), so that the standard error of the difference between means is obtained by pooling the sample variances.
