A sample of 6 observations from the population indicated that sample variance s_{1}^{2} is 529. A second sample of 5 observations from the same population indicated that sample variance s_{2}^{2} is 256. Conduct the following test of hypothesis using a 0.1 significance level.
H_{0}: σ_{1}^{2} =
σ_{2}^{2}
H_{1}: σ_{1}^{2} ≠
σ_{2}^{2}
You should use the tables in the book for obtaining the
