10. An agronomy study was performed to compare the yield (in kg/ha) of Sundance winter wheat and Manitou spring wheat under the same conditions. Listed below are actual yields of both varieties of wheat from nine test plot locations. Using a 5% significance level, is there statistically sufficient evidence to support the claim that the Sundance variety yielded more wheat than the Manitou variety? Perform an appropriate hypothesis test showing necessary statistical evidence to support your final given conclusion.
Sundance Manitou
3201 2386
3095 2011
3297 2616
