1. A social researcher wants to test the hypothesis that people who drink a lot while bowling have higher scores than people who do not drink while they bowl. The researcher studies 50 drinking bowlers and 50 non-drinking bowlers. The average score for drinking bowlers was 142 with a standard deviation of 7.45. The average score for non-drinking bowlers was 134 with a standard deviation of 6.81.

:- Average score for drinking bowlers

:-  The average score for non-drinking bowlers

To Test :-

H0 :-

H1 :-

Test Statistic :-

t = 5.6045

Test Criteria :-
Reject null hypothesis if

DF = 97
t_{\alpha, DF} = t_{ 0.05 , 97 } = 1.661

Result :- Reject Null Hypothesis
