# A Sample of 25 Concessions

A sample of 25 concession stand purchases at the October 22 matinee of Bride of Chucky showed a mean purchase of $5.29 with a standard deviation of $3.02 for the October 26 evening showing of the same movie for a sample of 25 purchases the mean was $5.12 with a standard deviation of $2.14. The means appear to be very close, but, not the variances. At a- .05, is there a difference in variances? show all steps clearly, including an Illustration of the decision rule.
