The null and alternate the hypotheses are:
H0: µ1 = µ2
H1: µ1 ≠ µ2
A random sample of 10 observations from one population revealed a sample mean of 23 and a sample deviation of 4. A random sample of 8 observations from another population revealed a sample mean of 26 and a sample standard deviation of 5. At the .05 significance level, is there a difference between the population means?
