sample standard deviation is 0.75. A sample of 50 observations is selected from a second population.
The sample mean is 2.59 and the sample standard deviation is 0.66. Conduct the following
test of hypothesis using the .08 significance level.
H0: &#956;1&#8804; &#956;2
H1: &#956;1 > &#956;2

b. State the decision rule.
c. Compute the value of the test statistic.
d. What is your decision regarding H0?
e. What is the p-value?

Note: Use the five-step hypothesis testing procedure
to solve the following exercises.
