Assume the population standard deviation for those drinking regular coffee is 1.35 cups per day and 1.49 cups per day for those drinking decaffeinated coffee. A random sample of 49 regular-coffee drinkers showed a mean of 4.20 cups per day. A sample of 45 decaffeinated-coffee drinkers showed a mean of 5.10 cups per day.
