# Five-step hypothesis testing procedure

The null and alternate hypotheses are:

H0:µ1= µ2

H1:µ1 ≠µ2

A random sample of 15 observations from the first population revealed a sample mean of 350 and a sample standard deviation of 12. A random sample of 17 observations from the second population revealed a sample mean of 342 and a sample standard deviation of 15. At the .10 significance level, is there a difference in the population means?
