Statistics Variance Problem

We are interested in determining whether or not the variances of the sales at two music stores (A & B) are equal. A sample of 10 days of sales at store A has a standard deviation of 30, while a sample of 16 days of sales from store B has a standard deviation of 20.

1) What is the value of the Observed test statistic?
2) What are the results of the hypothesis test at a significance level of 0.05?
