QUESTION 9 What critical value would I used for the following data? This data will be used to assess a two tailed evaluation with a level of significance of 0.05. The standard deviations (or variances) for the independent populations are not equal. Group A Group B sample mean 5 6 variance.sample 2 9 n 42 58 t critical will be _______________ (to three decimal places)

Given that,

sample mean 1 ( M1) = 5

sample mean 2 (M2) = 6

sample variance 1 = 2

sample variance 2 = 9

sample size ( n1) = 42

sample size ( n2) = 58

The null and alternative hypotheses are,

Since, the standard deviations (or variances) for the independent populations are not equal.

The degrees of freedom is,

t-critical value at significance level = 0.05 with degrees of freedom = 86 is,

Critical value = 1.988

Note: If we take df = min ( n1 - 1, n2- 1)= 41 then critical value is 2.020
