An experiment to compare the tension bond strength of polymer latex modified mortar (Portland cement mortar to which polymer latex emulsions have been added during mixing) to that of unmodified mortar resulted in x-bar = 18.12 kgf/cm^2 for the modified mortar (m = 40) and y-bar = 16.87 kgf/cm^2 for the unmodified mortar (n = 32). Let u_1 and u_2 be the true average tension bond strengths for the modified and unmodified mortars, respectively. Assume that the bond strength distributions are both normal. (see attachment)

a. Assuming the sigma_1 = 1.6 and sigma_2 = 1.4, test H0: u_1 and u_2 = 0 versus Ha: u_1 - u_2 > 0 at level 0.1.
