Please analyze the following data using the T-test for Unpaired data:

A school district wants to determine if the girls are equal to boys in test scores. They took a random sample of 22 8th grade girls and 24 8th grade boys. The district looked at recent CAT scores and found the mean score for girls to be xbar1 = 25 and the mean score for boys to be xbar2 = 26. The standard deviation for the girls is s1 = 2.2 and for the boys the standard deviation is s2 = 3.4. Is the school district correct in assuming the girls are equal in performance to boys. They are 95% sure their assumption is correct.
