Question 8 text

A student was conducting a hypothesis test to compare 2 independent samples using the z-test. He is checking the claim that there is no difference between to different samples. Sample 1 had a mean of 85, a standard deviation of 14 and there were 36 items in he sample. Sample 2 had a standard deviation of 15 and there were 32 items in the sample. The student does not know what the mean of sample 2 was, but the test value was z= 1.85. What the mean of sample 2?
