# P-value equality of mean

Do a two-sample test for equality of means assuming equal variances. Calculate the p-value.

a. Comparison of GPA for randomly chosen college juniors and seniors: ¯x1 = 3.05, s1 = .20,

n1 = 15, ¯x2 = 3.25, s2 = .30, n2 = 15, α = .025, left-tailed test.

b. Comparison of average commute miles for randomly chosen students at two community colleges:

¯x1 = 15, s1 = 5, n1 = 22, ¯x2 = 18, s2 = 7, n2 = 19, α = .05, two-tailed test.

c. Comparison of credits at time of graduation for randomly chosen accounting and economics students:

¯x1 = 139, s1 = 2.8, n1 = 12, ¯x2 = 137, s2 = 2.7, n2 = 17, α = .05, right-tailed test.

I am wanting to double check the answers I have, please use a excel sheet if needed, thank you!!
