The null and alternate hypotheses are:
H_{0} : μ_{1} =
μ_{2}
H_{1} : μ_{1} ≠
μ_{2}
A random sample of 8 observations from one population revealed a sample mean of 23 and a sample standard deviation of 3.9. A random sample of 8 observations from another population revealed a sample mean of 28 and a sample standard deviation of 4.4.
At the 0.05 significance level, is there a difference between the population means?
State the decision rule. (Negative amounts should be indicated by a minus sign. Round your answers to 3 decimal places.)
Compute the pooled estimate of the population variance. (Round your answer to 3 decimal places.)
Compute the test statistic. (Negative amount should be indicated by a minus sign. Round your answer to 3 decimal places.)
State your decision about the null hypothesis.
Reject H_{0}.
Do not reject H_{0}.
The p-value is
between 0.05 and 0.02
less than 0.001
between 0.05 and 0.1
between 0.001 and 0.01
between 0.1 and 0.2
