A manufacturer claims that the calling range (in feet) of its 900-MHz cordless telephone is greater than that of its leading competitor. A sample of 11 phones from the manufacturer had a mean range of 1070 feet with a standard deviation of 25 feet. A sample of 17 similar phones from its competitor had a mean range of 1040 feet with a standard deviation of 22 feet. Do the results support the manufacturer's claim? Let μ1 be the true mean range of the manufacturer's cordless telephone and μ2 be the true mean range of the competitor's cordless telephone. Use a significance level of α=0.1 for the test. Assume that the population variances are equal and that the two populations are normally distributed. Step 2 of 4 : Compute the value of the t test statistic. Round your answer to three decimal places.

reject Ho and conclude that manufacturer claims is right
