A sample of scores for men and women from an examination in Statistics 201 were:

Given that the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis
are:
H_{0}: μ_{m} 
μ_{w} ≤ 5
H_{1}: μ_{m}  μ_{w}
> 5
and using a 0.05 significance level conduct a ttest about a difference in population means:
a)  What is the correct decision rule?

b) Compute the pooled variance.
For full marks your answer should be accurate to at least four
decimal places.
Pooled variance: 0
c) Compute the value of the test statistic.
For full marks your answer should be accurate to at least three
decimal places.
Test statistic: 0
d)  What is your decision regarding H_{0}?

I USED SPSS TO GET THE VALUES.
a) Reject H0 in favour of H1 if the computed value of the statistic is greater than 1.729.
b) POOLED VARIANCE= 259.7053
c) Test Statistic= 0.341
d) There is insufficient evidence, at the given significance level, to reject H_{0}.
