I don't know how come you have those formulae, none is right.
Because this is a test of difference between means:
Using a .05 level of significance, test the hypothesis that there is no difference between the means of the two samples.
Let Md=µ1 - µ2, for this question, the null and alternative hypotheses are:
Ho: µ1 - µ2 = 0, or Md=0
H1: µ1 - µ2 <> 0 or Md<>0
Applying the general formula,

where Md is the difference between sample means, µ1 - µ2 is the difference between ...
