    A personal director in a particular state claims that the mean annual income is greater in one of the state's counties (county A) than it is in another county (county B). In county A, a random sample 17 residents has a mean annual income of $42,000 and a standard deviation of $8500.
    In County B, a random sample of 8 residents has a mean annual income of $38,300 and a standard deviation of $5100. At significance level 0.05.
    Assume the population variances are not equal.
    Identify the claim and state the Ho and Ha

    Which is the correct claim:
    (a) The mean annual incomes in counties A and B are equal."
    (b) The mean annual income in county A is less than county B."
    (c) The mean annual income in county A is greater than in county B."
    (d) The mean annual incomes in counties A and B are not equal.

    I have to choose the Ho and Ha from drop down
    What are the Ho and Ha?
    The null hypothesis is Ho is ___. The alternative hypothesis Ha is ____

    Which hypothesis is the claim?
