Given two dependent random samples with the following results:

 Population 1 Population 2 62 60 71 67 63 64 80 65 64 54 79 62 72 72 73 75

Can it be concluded, from this data, that there is a significant difference between the two population means?

Let d=(Population 1 entry)−(Population 2 entry). Use a significance level of α=0.1 for the test. Assume that both populations are normally distributed.

Step 1 of 5: State the null and alternative hypotheses for the test.

Step 2 of 5: Find the value of the standard deviation of the paired differences. Round your answer to three decimal places.

Step 3 of 5: Compute the value of the test statistic. Round your answer to three decimal places.

Step 4 of 5: Determine the decision rule for rejecting the null hypothesis H0. Round the numerical portion of your answer to three decimal places.

Step 5 of 5: Make the decision for the hypothesis test. Reject or Fail to reject Null Hypothesis.
