A study was conducted on the annual incomes of corporate trainers in the state of New York, in metropolitan areas of less than 100,000, and in metropolitan areas having a population of over 500,000. Some sample statistics are:

Sample Mean \$31,290 \$31,330
Sample SD \$1,060 \$1,900

Test the hypothesis that the annual income of corporate trainers in areas of more then 500,000 are significantly more than those in areas of less than 100,000. Use the 5% level of risk.
