    Media Matrix and Jupiter Communications gathered data on the time adults and the time teens spend online during a month (USA Today, September 14, 2000). The study concluded that on average, adults spend more time online than teens. Assume that a follow-up study sampled 26 adults and 30 teens. The standard deviations of the time online during a month were 94 minutes and 58 minutes, respectively.
